This granola is grain free. It is filled with nuts and seeds and coconut. Please feel free to personalize the ingredients to suit your taste buds and your pantry.
Your Ingredients = your numbers
I always suggest you enter your combination of ingredients and calculate the macros for your own recipe.
The recipe below produced about 26 Tablespoons.
A 1 Tablespoon serving of this recipe contains:
2.3 gr Carbohydrate 10.4 gr Fat 1.5 gr of Fiber and 2.9 gr of Protein
A tablespoon is a serving?
This Granola is quite rich, as many low carb high fat things are, so a little goes a long ways.
Use it as a topping for Greek yoghurt or crème fraîche. Try a couple of tablespoons of granola in a bowl with almond milk - it makes a delicious cereal!
How to make Low Carb Nutty Granola
Preheat Oven to 350F
Cover a large cookie sheet with parchment paper
Melt 60 gr Coconut Oil in a medium bowl
Mix in 1 teaspoon Cinnamon (or to taste)
Dash of salt
Stevia sweetener to taste
Coarsely chop and add to the melted oil
50 grams each of Almonds
Pumpkin Seeds (can leave these whole)
+ 20 grams each of Hemp hearts
Shredded unsweetened coconut
and Sesame seeds
Mix well to coat everything with the oil mixture
Spread it evenly on the parchment paper
Set your timer for 5 minutes at a time
Bake for about 20 – 30 minutes – turning and stirring the mixture every 5 minutes, to prevent it burning and allowing the contents to toast evenly.
Trust your Nose!
When you can smell toasted nuts – your granola is probably done and is less than 2 minutes from burning.
Remove from the oven and let cool before consuming.
Store the granola in a jar – it will keep in the fridge for several weeks. But if it will get eaten within a week you can keep it in the cupboard.
