Cinnamon Raisin Grain Free Granola

I love granola but oats simply do NOT agree with my tummy. There are a few good grain free options out there but they have added sugar and are quite expensive so I took matters into my own hands and developed a tasty recipe that is sure to satisfy that granola craving. I have made this a handful of times in the past few weeks because we can’t get enough of it! I really have perfected this recipe to be a tried and true go to grain free granola recipe! I didn’t add any sugar because my family is used to it but if you aren’t ready to completely forgo the sugar you can of course add in a banana or two to blend in with the egg and cashew butter, or simply drizzle on some honey or maple syrup before baking or even add in some coconut sugar. The world is your oyster put your personal spin on it!
