Chuck the Sugar: Yum Granola Recipe without the extra Poop

Okay, so clearly poop is on my mind. That’s what happens when you change diaper after diaper (of Kovy, our baby, not mine). Making my own food so I can ditch all the over-stimulating and stress-producing sugar is also on my mind. That’s what happens when you want your baby to sleep well, keep an even blood sugar level and not get addicted to sweet things at an early age (3 weeks – that’s a bit early if you ask me).

So here we go. My Yum Granola Recipe without the extra Poop. Poop, being sugar. Not real poop. As you can see from the pics, the granola sticks together into chewy bits. Heck, you could slab some almond butter, drizzle a little maple syrup on top and call it a day!

Flavor Notice: Obviously this granola is not super sweet, given the only sugar comes from apples and goji berries. If you’re craving extra sweetness, add some maple syrup.

As (almost) always: This recipe is free of gluten, dairy, soy and corn. Yet note that there is animal based collagen.

Enjoy, friends! Now it’s time to go change a diaper. Kovy’s, not mine.
