Great Grain-Free Granola

by Ivory Soap

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.

This is my favorite cereal ever.  It crunchy and sweet and salty.  It never gets soggy in milk.  I could eat bowls and bowls of it.  And I have.

Ivory’s Favorite Grain Free Granola

1 cup salted sunflower seed kernels

1 cup raisins

1 cup frozen blueberries

1 cup unsweetened coconut

1 cup chopped raw walnuts

1 cup chopped raw almonds


1.  Mix and freeze.  (I like my cereal COLD.  Way colder than the fridge keeps the milk.)

2.  Scoop out 1 cup into a bowl.  Add milk and optional sweetener of choice.  (Oooh, and I like to slice in a banana too!)


Anyone else have a favorite morning mix?

Mmm, sounds hearty, tasty and filling! I’ve been craving cereal lately but don’t really want to eat the boxed garbage. I’ll have to try out yours soon, Ivory. Thanks!

This looks lovely and delicious !! I will try this. One of my favorite morning meals is a breakfast made with Kashi 7 grain pilaf. I like to make it with coconut milk, and then add things like you’ve put in this one — nuts and berries and coconut. It does freeze well too. Bon Appetite !!

Thank you for this simple and delicious recipe! I made it this morning, chopping my nuts in the food processor and adding dried dates and dried apples. I ate it with almond milk and it was HEAVEN!!! Thank you!!

My family is addicted to the boxed stuff and I’d like to get them off of that, it seems like it’s mostly expensive air. This looks a lot healthier and my son will be sooo happy that blueberries are already in it!

This is soooo good! We made this tonight and put it on top of yogurt for dessert. It is scrumptious!! Thank you for the recipe!
We’re looking forward to having it in the morning as cereal!!

I’ve been reading your blog for 3 hours and sending links to my sister and to my own email address so that I can copy and paste these wonderful patterns, tips, soap recipes, etc. I wish I lived near you because I’d LOVE to sit and talk with you in real time. You have got to be one of the most fascinating people on earth! Thanks for all of your knowledge, humor and most of all for not keeping it all to yourself.
