This incredible Paleo Mulberry Granola recipe is grain-free and purely fruit-sweetened. This healthy breakfast recipe is super easy to make and can be whipped up in no time flat. All you need is 7 ingredients –walnuts, mulberries, dried apricots, dates, cinnamon, salt, and water.
Paleo Mulberry Granola is a fantastic breakfast paired with my dairy-free Almond Milk. Or, if you’re in a time crunch, serve it with a splash of coconut milk. Either way, we love to top it with fresh berries. This gluten-free granola also makes a wonderful paleo snack for children and adults. Sometimes I eat it after dinner for dessert. It’s that good!

This looks really good, much different than the granola I’ve been making. It’s wonderful how one food can have so many variations, each unique and delicious in it’s own way.
Brilliant idea for granola! Another variation which I often have for breakfast (as it must be eaten right away) is to combine 1/2 – 2/3 cup walnuts with 1 shredded apple, 1/2 cup blueberries, and 1 banana. I add to that a generous amount of cinnamon. Delicious and cleansing!

This sounds great. I have everything to make it.
Stacie K says
Yay! I will have to substitute other spices for cinnamon, but otherwise this fits well with my nearly-everything-restricted diet. Thanks for continuing to inspire us.

I have been experimenting with making granola and none of it has turned out the way I like. I will surely try this recipe, it looks delicious!
Janna (Just Flourishing) says
That sounds delicious. I am in need of granola in my life right now.
I am definitely going to try this since I already have some crispy walnuts and dates ready. Too bad I didn’t get any mulberries off our tree this spring, but I think I’ll use some raspberries. Sounds delicious! Thanks for posting.
what’s a good fruit to use in place of apricots? i have an allergy to them. =( love them but they hate me lol.
Stacie K says
Would you be able to use dried mango? It has more natural sugar than apricots but is an excellent source of vitamins A, B-6, C.
oooo! GF granola that doesn’t include oats! Thank you.
yum- thanks! i can always use a GF granola recipe. i assume the mulberries in the recipe are dried? i’ve never used mulberries before…
Julia, yes they are :-)
Ohhhhh….. that looks so good. I have been obsessed with cinnnamon of late. I use teaspoons daily on flax “oatmeal”, yogurt, sprinkled on fruit. Oh the possibilites.
This recipe sounds absolutely yummy and can’t wait to try it!
It was nice meeting you in New York and I appreciate your signing my copy of your new cookbook and all your suggestions! :)
