SWEET n SALTY GRANOLA

It's Road Trip season and one of my favorite grab-and-go options is trail mix. Sadly, most of the options available in the snack aisle contain too many peanuts, icky cooking oils, and hidden sugars. And, if you are sticking to a paleo-focused lifestyle, it's almost impossible to find a paleo-friendly trail mix and this recipe hits a homerun every time! My advice: double the batch from the start, it's that addicting!
