Paleo Granola Recipe

2014 is the year of the skinny b*tch and this paleo granola recipe has been my go-to snack in staving off my endless sugar cravings.  This recipe is not only highly addicting, it is also extremely easy to make.  Plus, this recipe is easily modifiable so you can add or subtract any ingredients that tickle your fancy.  So whip out your Costco card and start buying unsalted nuts in bulk because after making one batch of this granola, you'll be hooked.  Recipe inspired and modified by PaleOMG
