I feared oats for years. Well, I mostly feared grains. I thought they would irritate my stomach, cause gut issues, and lead me to weight issues. But I also felt the same way about beans…until 2020 when I started eating beans on a regular basis and became healthier than ever before. And during that food experimentation, I also started eating oats a few times a week. And guess what? No gut issues and no weight gain. Just same ole me…but happier and healthier! So no, oats are not paleo. But if you would like paleo granola recipe, check out this one! I got you, boo. And if you’re like me, experimenting and trying foods you haven’t ate in years, I hope you love this granola as much as I do! It’s delicious on it’s own, but when you mix it with some milk, oh lawdy, it’s absolutely divine.
Speaking of granola…have you tried Granola Butter? It is legit one of my favorite snacks of all time. I don’t even put it on anything, I just eat it with a spoon. We have a monthly subscription to it because it disappears so quickly in our house. And I can’t even remember the last time I bought a nut butter because all we care about now is Granola Butter. Actually, as I type this, Brian is behind me eating a massive spoonful of it. It’s glorious. And I feel like it’s going to be the next business that blows up and is bought out for $600M, like RxBars. No one else is doing it so there time is coming. I just know it. I follow the owner on IG and she busts her ass every single day, so I can’t wait to see her become a massive millionaire someday. It’s gonna be rad. Until then, I plan on giving her all my money every month.
Any other companies out there that you love that are doing really unique things? I just got my hands on Crossrope, which is a jump rope brand that pairs up with an app so you can work on your jumping skills, get into workouts, and get results. I’m really digging them, too. Since I rarely do cardio these days, I’m excited to start jumping rope more to work on my stamina a bit. I’m also still really obsessed with our Tonal. Brian uses it every single day and I’ve been loving it for stretching and yoga workouts. I just love seeing a company creating something so incredibly innovative. Now tell me what companies you’re loving right now! I’m always excited to try something new!
- Prep Time: 5 minutes
- Cook Time: 35 minutes
- Total Time: 1 hour
- Yield: 4 cups 1x
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, mix together oats, maple syrup, butter, cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt until combined.
- Pour onto baking sheet, spread oats into a flat layer and press into the parchment paper. This will make it nice and chunky once cooled. Mix together maple sugar, cinnamon and coarse salt. Sprinkle half on top of the oats and save the other half for later.
- Place in the oven to bake for 20 minutes, turn baking sheet, then bake for another 15 minutes. Once done baking, sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar mixture on top. Let cool COMPLETELY on the baking sheet before breaking apart.
- Eat by itself…but it’s WAY better in some milk because the milk gets all cinnamon-y and the bit of coarse makes the flavors really pop. Just trust me!
*You can use a different type of fat such as coconut oil, but butter is what makes it taste more like a snickerdoodle compared to other fats
