This Grain Free Fig & Vanilla Granola fills the house with the most heavenly scent! I could make it everyday, just for that smell.  It is super easy to make, only takes about 10 minutes of hands on time and it is full of fabulous nutrition and taste.

I have many parents coming into the community who's kids are new to the whole foods world.  That is why many of the recipes I create err on the sweeter side. Making these homemade-whole food and gut healthy versions of processed foods a little on the sweeter side at first tends to make for an easier transition.  Once your taste buds are adjusted you can begin cutting back on the sweetener.  This recipe calls for 1/3 cup of honey.  You could use half of that amount and still get a great result.

 
Even with the full complement of honey and dried fruit, this granola packs a good nutrient punch and less sugar than the packaged variety. Full of fiber, protein and gut healthy fat it keeps blood sugar balanced and energy purring along.  It also comes with a full compliment of of micro-nutrients like potassium, magnesium, zinc and vitamins A and K just to name a few!  A big upgrade to that box of Quaker Oats Granola that might have had a spot on your shelf before today!
 
I hope you will give this grain free Fig & Vanilla Granola a try, maybe even this weekend, and I'd love to hear your what you think.

Join me for the newest episode of The Kid’s Health Revolution Podcast as I talk with the fascinating Takota Coen a 4th generation farmer in Alberta Canada.

We will talk about:

  • How health and healing is not possible with our modern day food production system.
  • Why this food is lacking essential nutrients.
  • How healthy land management leads to more nutrient dense food which leads to healthier people.
  • How the health of the soil and the micro-organisms are being destroyed and how that effects our environment and our food.
  • The better way forward for the land and for our health.  How Coen farms is raising the bar in order to raise healthier, happier humans.
  • The feed the world myth we have all bought into and how it is unsustainable.
  • Why having nutrient metrics from your farmers is important.
  • The shocking Omega 3, 6 and 9 ratio difference.
  • Could eating eggs be as good for you as eating fish?
  • How Coen farms is making ethically raised, grass fed, nutrient dense meat affordable.
  • Why purely plant based diets are not good for us or our environment and how proper animal husbandry is the answer.
  • The truth about the China Study, one of the worlds most cited plant based books.
