Paleo Granola with Cinnamon and Honey

I like this recipe because it is gluten free and food prep friendly. Making this batch of granola lasts the whole week to feed me and my other half! Cooking in bulk saves not only money but time! 

It makes your home smell delicious and it packed with a variety of nutrients!

Having a goof course of fat for breakfast keeps us satisfied, fuller for longer and our brains off to a great start!
