If you’ve ever gone hiking, on a road trip, or been on a plane, then you probably know the power of granola! As a dry food, it can go anywhere for a healthy snack in a pinch! But if you add yogurt and honey, it satisfies your hunger and sweet tooth at the same time!
This Grain-Free Granola meal prep recipe goes one step further to make your gut happy: we replaced the grains. People who really focus on the paleo diet believe that humans did not evolve to digest dairy, legumes, and grains well. They believe that eating these foods could even increase health risks.
That’s why we created this Grain Free Granola at MPOF - to provide your body with the energy boost it needs. Enjoy it as a light lunch or snack option without any additives, preservatives, or chemicals. And true to our brand, we love providing you with options that make cooking fun and easy.
Ditch the grains and make this Paleo-friendly sheet pan granola, coated in a sticky honey glaze, perfect for breakfast or dessert!
How long will Grain Free Granola last for?
Granola is dry food so you can leave it out of the fridge for about 2 or 3 days as long as it is stored in an airtight container. For longer than a few days, store your meal prep recipe in meal prep containers in the fridge. Use a glass mason jar or snack-size meal prep container so you can add the yogurt and honey to spice things up.
Can Grain Free Granola be frozen?
Absolutely! It’s nuts and dried berries so this simple meal prep recipe will freeze very well for just about as long as you need. But we recommend storing it for up to 6 months.
First, allow the granola to cool completely, then pack it in an airtight freezer-safe container. Gently press down on the granola so that there aren’t large air pockets in the jar, which could lead to freezer burn. Leave about ¼ inch headspace at the top. Place it in the freezer.
Defrosting - Best Practice: Set the jars on the counter overnight to defrost at room temperature.
Note - If you allow it to defrost in the refrigerator, it will take much longer and the dried fruit will be tougher.
