Paleo Mulberry Granola

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 recipe for Paleo Mulberry Granola is based on a product I found in New York, manufactured by International Harvest. Their product was a bit too sweet for me, so I made my own version eliminating the agave they used in theirs. It’s quite sweet enough for me with the dried fruit in it. One great thing about this homemade granola is the wonderful cinnamon flavor, which accentuates the sweetness of the dried fruits, and can also control blood sugar, a win-win!

In addition to this Paleo Mulberry Granola, you’ll love my classic Paleo Granola recipe which is also gluten-free and grain-free!

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    • 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

    • Hi Elana,
      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! :)
