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!

Coconut free version made with tigernut flakes and avocado oil.

  1. Thanks so much. Looking for fun ideas for food gifts for my grandkids for the holidays. This fits the bill. WOOHOO!

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

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

  4. My son who is on AIP made this. Wonderful recipe! Do you store in the fridge or counter?

  5. My daughter and I are AIP and we absolutely love this granola. We always double the recipe and increase the amount of raisins. I burned the first batch I made…I now check frequently while in oven. For us it takes much less time than 30 minutes, probably just our oven.

  6. Just made a double batch of this and a double batch of your raspberry muffins to prep for our first week back to school! Thanks for the wonderful recipes šŸ™‚

  7. Hi any suggestions for toasting tiger nut flakes?

    • No need to pre-toast the tigernut flakes in this recipe. They will toast as it bakes in the oven with the rest of the ingredient! Hope this helps!

    I used the coconut flakes as that is available to me locally but hoping to try the tigernut in the future. We love this! We actually call it cereal for our family, we love to serve it in a bowl with whatever milk we are using at the time. It tastes a lot like raisin bran and it is amazing! Thanks so much for all your amazing recipes and making it a little bit easier on us in this journey of AIP!

    • Yes it’s perfect as a cereal, and I agree it reminds me of raisin bran which used to be my fave! So glad you and your fam are enjoying it <3
