Blueberry Coconut Gluten Free Granola
Gluten free granola beats any healthy cereal brands when you are looking for something healthy to eat for breakfast for you and your family. Why not make your own homemade granola? You can enjoy it as cereal, make homemade granola bars, use it as a topping for yogurt, in an Acai Bowl, or even with some Homemade Almond Milk. Healthy granola is made by substituting certain ingredients with healthier options like coconut oil, maple syrup or honey, and dried fruits with no added sugars.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
Pour melted oil, sweetener of choice, and vanilla over dry ingredients. Mix well until all the oats and/or nuts are lightly coated.
Pour the granola onto baking sheet and use a spoon to spread it into an even layer.
Bake until golden for about 20-25 minutes, stirring the granola halfway through.
While the granola cools, it will crisp even more.
Let the granola cool completely, then break it into pieces and stir in Eatnuts.com Dried Fruits.
Store granola in an airtight container at room temperature for about 1-2 weeks or in a freezer bag for up to three months.

There are so many health benefits of the acai berry. This berry is high in anthocyanin, which is a type of antioxidant that supports lowering cholesterol levels in the blood. Another one of the healthy benefits of the acai berry is their richness in plant sterols that provide protective cardio benefits to our cells. Acai berries are abundantly grown in South America, but if you are in North America your best way to get the health benefits of the acai berry is to purchase frozen acai and use them to make an acai bowl or smoothie.
