|Grain Free Orange Cinnamon Granola|
This recipe was inspired by my dear Barre3 friends here in Nashville! Barre3 is a holistic approach to wellness, much like LL Balanced! While the heart of Barre3 centers on fitness workouts, which combine yoga, ballet & pilates, it's about so much more! Barre3 cares as much about what you had for breakfast and how stressed your day is, as they do about tight buns and quads. When I met the owner of Nashville's Barre3 studios, Holly, I knew I'd met a sister from another mister, and I instantly became a fan of the whole philosophy.
Starting on January 9th, Barre3 is offering the B3 All In program, a "4-week program created to supercharge your body and mind in one month". Holly allowed me a sneak peek into the B3 All In guidebook, and I was blown away by the plethora of tips and information about resetting your health in mind, body and spirit for the new year. I was also blown away by the plethora of delicious sounding recipes!!!
I've been wanting to make a grain-free/paleo granola for a while, and I was smitten with the B3 All In version. I added a few tweaks to suit my own favorite flavor profiles, and the result is my new favorite breakfast! Orange zest, cinnamon and vanilla are a perfect combination of refreshing and cozy, and I adore how the nuts, seeds and coconut offering a variety of crunchy and chewy textures. Full of protein, fiber, antioxidants and minerals, a bowl of this granola with almond milk or yogurt and fruit is such a satisfying and nourishing way to start the day. I've also been making parfaits with my Vanilla Chia Pudding, blueberries and this granola. I'll make a few in mason jars, cover them up and enjoy throughout the week!
If you're someone who doesn't digest grains well, or you just try to keep your mornings a little lower-carb and you don't want something savory....well you + this recipe = BESTIES.
And, most important, if you're someone looking to kick off the new year on a healthy start but you do best with the guidance of a program, I highly recommend checking out the B3 All In program!
