One of my favorite recipes from Leah’s mom: nograinola. It’s delicious, wholesome, filling, and, hence the name, a grain-free granola. Some day, Leah and I will finally get around to picking another name for it and starting a wildly successful food company. Until then, and because Siobhan is asking for Paleo recipes, you can make it for yourself.


Preheat oven to 275 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl, combine nuts, seeds and coconut flakes. Stir until well combined. In a small bowl or 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup, mix coconut oil, honey, vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg, until well blended. Pour oil and honey mixture over nuts and seeds and stir with a large spoon or your hands until everything is well coated.

Spread mixture out evenly on a jellyroll pan (cookie sheet with sides) and bake at 275 for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from oven and stir in dried fruit. Let cool completely and store in an airtight jar.


  • 1 cup raw cashews, chopped 
  • 1 cup raw walnuts, chopped
  • 2 cups sliced almonds
  • 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup honey (or ¼ cup honey and ¼ teaspoon liquid stevia)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 ½ cups dried fruit (raisins, cranberries, cherries, chopped apricots, chopped dates, etc.)
