Gonna make this post short and SWEET!

Grain-Free Chocolate Granola

Want a chocolatey treat without all the sugar? This grain-free, paleo-friendly granola will certainly do the trick. Eat it with your favorite yogurt or on top of a smoothie bowl!

Grain-Free Chocolate Granola

1 1/2 c. walnuts
1 1/2 c. coconut flakes (unsweetened)
1/2 c. macadamia nuts
1/4 c. cocoa powder
2 Tbsp. butter, melted
1/4 c. honey, melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1/4 c. hemp seeds
1/4 c. cacao nibs
1/2 c. raisins or dried blueberries

  1. Preheat your oven to 325
  2. In a food processor, pulse walnuts, coconut, and macadamia nuts until coarsely chopped.
  3. Add nuts to a bowl and toss with vanilla, melted butter and honey.
  4. Spread mixture out evenly onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 25-30 mins. Checking occasionally to make sure the edges aren’t burning (coconut can burn very quickly if your oven runs “hot”).
  5. Let cool and then toss with raisins, cacao nibs, and hemp seeds and store in a glass jar. Refrigerate if not used within a week.

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
