Apple Cinnamon Granola (AIP/Paleo)

WARNING: This granola is dangerously addictive! I literally had to hide it from myself and hubby. From myself so I wouldn’t go overboard, from hubby so there would be some left for me later on, teehee!

What you Need:

  • Coconut Flakes OR Tigernut Flakes – This recipe uses toasted coconut flakes  but you can easily make it with tigernut flakes and it is equally delicious! I really enjoy the tigernut version as a cereal. 
  • Apple Chips – I use Martin’s apple chips which is a Canadian brand, I believe Bare Apple Chips are similar. 
  • Coconut Oil or Avocado Oil – Coconut oil is my first pick, but if you need to avoid all forms of coconut, avocado oil works as well! 
  • Maple Syrup – as a Canadian, my sweetener of choice! 
  • Arrowroot Starch – this helps to achieve granola clumps, which is the best part about granola in my opinion.

Eat by itself, on top of coconut yogurt, on top of smoothies, or as a cereal with either coconut milk or plain tigernut milk.  YUM!

Oh wow. What a nice afternoon snack. Pair with a good book and I’ll be all set.


How much does this make, and how/how long does it store?
