We changed it up for this typically oat based granola making it with almond flour to make it grain free.  The key is letting it brown a little around the edges, and then letting it cool completely before breaking it up and storing it. I like big chunks rather than small morsels of granola, so this recipe fits the bill! My kids love having this for a sweet snack.  Hemp seeds add extra protein while almond flour keeps the carbohydrates a little lower than in traditional granola.
