DESCRIPTION: Grains, gluten, and sugar. All of the makings of traditional granola are contrary to your autoimmune diet. Thankfully, this AIP tigernut granola recipe is a delicious and perfect solution for your granola cravings.
Granola at its essence is problematic to those with an autoimmune condition, as well as those watching their carbohydrate or sugar consumption. Let’s break down how I took a non-AIP recipe and made it work for your diet.
First, I needed to address the grain issue. Oats are the basis for many granola mixes. As a grain, it’s not good for your AIP diet and could lead to inflammation.
Instead, I used tigernuts as a base for this version. Assuming of course that you don’t have allergies, nuts are fine for your AIP diet and often work well as a grain substitute in many recipes.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C.
- Combine the tigernuts, coconut flakes, dried fruit, and honey together in a bowl. Mix until well coated. Spread out in an even layer on a large roasting tray and place in the oven for 6-7 minutes. Remove the tray from the oven set aside to cool completely.
- Store in a sealed container.
