{Note from Jessica: Today’s post is shared by my sweet friend Renee, author of Raising Generation Nourished. We became friends several years ago and I am continually impressed with her desire to help change the world, starting with our newest generation. Real food has to be core of our health and should start in the womb. Considering this is the first time in history that our children are expected to die before us, something HAS to change. I’m honored to call her a friend. I hope you’ll stop by her site, Raising Generation Nourished, and say hello!}

I am so excited for strawberry season I can hardly stand it! I am quite sure that this past winter must have hit some sort of record book where I live for the longest winter ever.

I probably say that every year. But those long winters, and slow to warm up springs bring us some of the best strawberry picking around. We hit up our local U-Pick every late June and pick some of the most beautiful, juicy strawberries you have ever seen! My goal is typically 40-ish pounds of strawberry picking. You can’t beat U-Pick pricing so I stock up and we rarely have to buy strawberries from a store during the year.

So what do I do with all of those strawberries?!

I freeze a majority of them. They make perfect smoothies and additions to yogurt. But this year I wanted to try making store-able cereal with some of the strawberries. I took my plain, grain free granola recipe that I make often using applesauce and raisins and swapped for strawberry puree and strawberries. I was more than impressed, and it was a hit with my family.

Strawberry Granola Cereal :: Grain Free, Paleo Friendly, Allergen Free Options // deliciousobsessions.com #grainfree #glutenfree #paleo friendly #allergenfriendlyI used Brazil nuts in the recipe as I am working on nourishing some thyroid issues through selenium since my last pregnancy. You can do an equal swap with a different nut variety if you want. If you are nut free, you can swap the nuts for sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds. Otherwise the recipe should be quite allergen friendly for all!

Strawberry Granola Cereal :: Grain Free, Paleo Friendly, Allergen Free Options // deliciousobsessions.com #grainfree #glutenfree #paleo friendly #allergenfriendlyMy plan this June is to quadruple this batch that I am sharing with you today. Granola stores well in airtight containers or bags and I plan to store in the freezer with such a large quantity. It makes for quick pull out breakfasts on busy mornings. I will probably even store one bag way far back in the freezer so I forget about it until about January. What a treat to have summer strawberry cereal in the dead middle of winter! We usually enjoy ours with raw milk or in our raw yogurt. But if you are dairy free, you can enjoy it with coconut milk or coconut yogurt. It is even super yummy just on it’s own!

Don’t make that stop you from making your own granola. I have only had a dehydrator for the last year, and before that I made granola all the time. Just set the granola mixture on baking sheets in your oven at the lowest temp on a day where you are at home and can stir it around every so often. It works just as well, and if you make a big enough batch you only have to do it every so often.

Recipe type: Breakfast or Snack
  • 2 cups raw Brazil nuts, chopped (just buzz them up in the food processor to chop)
  • 2 cups raw almonds, chopped (just buzz them up in the food processor to chop)
  • 1 tbsp. sea salt (For soaking the nuts. Please see step 1)
  • 2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup melted coconut oil
  • 1-3 tbsp. raw honey (Depending on how sweet your strawberries are. When in season they probably won’t even need this! Mine were definitely not in season yet and I did add a few TB of the honey.)
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups pureed strawberries (You will need a little over 2lbs of strawberries between this puree and the chopped strawberries in the next line.)
  • 2 cups sliced or chopped strawberries (Depending on how big you want the strawberry chunks in your cereal)
  1. Before you make the cereal, you will want to soak your nuts or seeds to make them easier to digest. Put the chopped nuts in a medium bowl with the sea salt and fill the bowl with water until the nut mixture is covered completely. Let the bowl sit in a warm spot in your kitchen 8-12 hours (It is pretty cold where I live so I set them under the light in my oven in the winter). After soaking, simply strain out the water in a fine mesh strainer and dump the nut mixture into a large mixing bowl to combine the rest of the ingredients. **I soaked my nuts during the day and then got the granola into the dehydrator over night. You could also soak the nuts overnight and get them into the dehydrator during the day.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients except the chopped strawberries, to the nut mixture in the large mixing bowl, and combine well.
  3. Fold in the chopped strawberries.
  4. Spread the granola mixture on your dehydrator trays and dry out according to your machine. I did mine at 135 degrees overnight. If you don’t have a dehydrator, you can still make this! Set your oven at the lowest temp and dry out over a few hours – you will want to do this during the day so you can keep an eye on them and stir the granola around a bit.
  5. After the granola is dryed out, let it cool to room temperature, and then break it apart into the size pieces you want. I keep some bigger as that is how my hubby likes it for his yogurt breakfast at work. And I keep some quite small since I have little mouths eating it.

Hey AIP Friends! Are You Struggling with Breakfasts?

I can help! I have done the AIP twice, once for 6 months and the next time for about 18 months and now a large number of my readers are also following the autoimmune protocol for their own healing. I have created a number of AIP compliant recipes for this site, and many can easily be modified to fit your AIP lifestyle.

During my time on the AIP I learned a lot, but breakfasts were, by far, the hardest meals for me to plan out. I was an eggs-for-breakfast kind of gal and turns out, I react to eggs so those for sure had to go. What’s a gal to do when she’s had her favorite go-to breakfast taken away?

Get creative!

Which is what I did, along with the help of 25 other amazing AIP bloggers who all used the AIP to help further along their healing. Together, we created the 85 Amazing AIP Breakfasts eBook (one of the very first digital resources of its kind). The book was coordinated and designed by my friend, Eileen of Phoenix Helix website, and it quickly became a favorite resource in the AIP community!


  • A paleo autoimmune protocol cookbook that is aligned with The Paleo Approach
  • A resource for reversing autoimmune disease
  • The work of 26 AIP bloggers who have used the AIP to improve their own health.
  • 85 curated breakfast recipes from the best of the AIP blogs, including 33 completely new recipes never published before!
  • Over half of the recipes can easily be modified for low-FODMAP, GAPS/SCD, low-histamine, and coconut-free diets using the handy substitution charts included in the book.


  • Delicious beverages like Rooibos “Latte”, Vanilla “Cappuccino”, Smoothies, Liver & Kidney Detox drink, and more!
  • Breakfast bowls like Creamy Grain-Free “Porridge”, Roasted Cinnamon Pear “Oatmeal”, Biscuits & Gravy, Cranachan, and more!
  • Breakfast skillets like Sweet Potato Beef Curry, Rabbit Sweet Potato Hash, Bacon & Veggie Fry-Up, Liver & Mushroom Stir-fry, Zucchini Apple Hash, and more!
  • Soups (yes! You can eat soup for breakfast) like Greek Gyro Soup, Carrot Ginger Halibut Soup, Fragrant Herb & Coconut Chicken Soup, Offal (but now awful!) Stew, and more!
  • Patties like Apple Pie Pork Patties, Ginger Green Onion Patties, Perfect Breakfast Sausage, Tuna Cakes with Green Olives, Cranberry Maple Chicken Patties, and more!
  • Pancakes (yum!) like Sweet Potato Banana Pancakes, Spinach Plantain Pancakes, Fig & Citrus Hand Pies, Plantain Waffles, Cinnamon Crumb Cakes, and more!

Regardless of whether you are just starting out on the AIP or you’re already into the program, this cookbook is the perfect addition to your kitchen.
