Vanilla Masala Granola (Grain and Sugar Free)

Carrot Cereal has been the only thing satisfying my cereal cravings for quite some time now but it wasn’t quite giving me the hearty satisfaction that a bowl of granola used to give. All I knew when I began this little experiment was that it needed to have cacao nibs and that I was going for a no sugar, no grain recipe. The addition of garam masala was a last minute surprise and it made for the most uniquely delicious¬†granola I’ve ever had! Be warned though- this is made from almost entirely nuts, seeds, and oil. You can’t sit down to a cup of it like you might with an oat-based granola. I tried. It hurt. I’d definitely recommend using a sprinkling of this to top some coconut yogurt or having a small bowl with almond milk as a sweet and savory dessert.
