Grain-Free Granola {The Everygirl Feature}

Back in my pre-paleo days, I LOVED eating granola with yogurt and fruit (doused in more sugar) for breakfast.

Most granolas on the supermarket shelf are loaded with refined sugar, industrial seed oils, and preservatives, so I went on a quest to develop my own paleo version.

This nutty grain-free granola is baked in coconut oil and sweetened with just a tad of good-quality honey and maple syrup.


This is a great thing to make on a Sunday night and have for breakfast all week long on busy mornings.

I loved eating it plain, and you could also try it with chilled almond milk, coconut milk, or heavy cream. Feel free to top it with sliced strawberries, peaches, bananas, blueberries, or any fruit of your choice, and enjoy!

People often shy away from making hard-boiled eggs because they can be finnicky, but it really doesn’t have to be all that hard!

I used this Cooking Planit recipe with my new T-fal saucepan to time the steps perfectly. Remember how much I raved about the app here?

Perfect Hard-Boiled Eggs
Recipe from Gourmet Veggie Mama via Cooking Planit

  • 4 pastured or free-range eggs
  • 1 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. white vinegar
  • For serving: salt, pepper, and/or hot sauce
  1. Place the eggs in a medium saucepan and cover with one inch of cold water. Add the vinegar and salt.
  2. Bring the water to a rapid boil, turn down the heat and allow to simmer for 1 minute.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat, cover and set aside for 12 minutes.
  4. Once the eggs have rested for 12 minutes, drain the water from the pot using the lid, being careful not to damage the eggs. Add cold water to the pot and drain again, repeating until the eggs are at room temperature.
  5. When the eggs are cool to the touch, refrigerate them for future use or peel them by tapping the shell on the countertop and peeling with your fingers underneath the skin.
  6. Transfer the peeled eggs to plates and slice. Season with salt, pepper, and/or hot sauce if desired.
