This grain free granola can be eaten cold by adding almond or coconut milk to ½ cup of dry mixture.  You can also create more of a “cooked cereal” by pouring boiling water over ½ cup of dry mixture, letting sit for 10 minutes, and it will take on the consistency of oatmeal.  You can increase the protein content by adding 1-2 tbsp of greek yogurt.
