Description

Welcome to a delightful culinary journey that not only caters to your taste buds but also aligns seamlessly with your commitment to a healthy lifestyle. 

Today, we embark on a culinary adventure with a Low Carb Keto Granola Recipe that not only embraces the principles of the keto diet but also delivers a crunchy, flavorful experience that stands in stark contrast to the often sugar-laden, store-bought granolas.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1/4 cup of Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 cup of Almonds
  • 1/2 cup of Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1/4 cup of Cashews
  • 1/2 cup of Sesame Seeds
  • 1/4 cup of Unsweetened Coconut Flakes
  • 1/2 cup of Keto-Safe Berries - Blueberries, Strawberries or Raspberries


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Mix your nut mixture with the coconut oil in a large bowl and spread onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper in an even layer. 
  2. Place your homemade keto granola in your preheated oven and bake uncovered for 15 minutes. Turn your sugar-free granola over in the pan half way through cooking.
  3. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. You now have the perfect low carb keto granola cereal addition.

Notes

  • Nuts and Seeds Variety:
    • Use a mix of almonds, walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds for a diverse texture and flavor.
  • Coconut Flakes:
    • Include unsweetened coconut flakes for a tropical touch and added crunch.
  • Sweetener Choice:
    • Opt for a keto-friendly sweetener like erythritol, stevia, or monk fruit to keep the granola low-carb.
  • Healthy Fats:
    • Add healthy fats by incorporating coconut oil or ghee for a rich flavor and crispiness.
  • Flavor Enhancers:
    • Include vanilla extract and a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg for a warm and aromatic flavor profile.
  • Liquid Binder:
    • Use egg whites or a vegan alternative like aquafaba to bind the ingredients together without using traditional grains.
  • Pre-soak Nuts and Seeds:
    • Soak the nuts and seeds beforehand to enhance digestibility and nutrient absorption.
  • Gentle Mixing:
    • Mix the ingredients gently to avoid breaking the nuts and keep larger clusters in the granola.
    • Spread Evenly:
      • Spread the mixture evenly on a baking sheet to ensure uniform baking and achieve a consistent texture.
    • Bake at Low Temperature:
      • Bake at a low temperature (around 325F) to prevent burning and allow flavors to develop gradually.
    • Stirring Interval:
      • Stir the granola halfway through the baking time to ensure even cooking and avoid uneven browning.
    • Cool Completely:
      • Allow the granola to cool completely on the baking sheet before transferring to a storage container. This helps in retaining crispiness.
    • Storage Tips:
      • Store in an airtight container to maintain freshness. Add a small packet of silica gel to prevent moisture and keep the granola crispy.
