This Nutty Cinnamon Raisin Granola is full of nuts and deliciousness! This granola is grain free and sugar free…and so very yummy. Use any combination of nut you like. For the almond or pecan meal flour listed in the ingredients, you can either buy the flour or just grind up some nuts until it’s a powder. The same goes for the chia seed meal. A coffee grinder will turn the chia seeds into a nice powder very quickly. I hope you try this deliciously nutty, Nutty Cinnamon Raisin Granola recipe!
