How to Make It
Granola is excellent running fuel! Amazing granola, thanks for the recipe! This looks absolutely sinful! About Kate Taylor Vegetable enthusiast. I eat it almost daily, whether sprinkling it on top of my cereal, baking it some delicious waffles, or coating tofu!
Thank you for posting your recipe! I cannot wait to try it! I literally copied and pasted the ingredients from your post into my fitness pal. I deleted the eryithrol and it calculated 8. Please let me know what you think!
Hi Paula, Yes, you can exclude the erythritol. You can see breakdown of the carb counts I use in my low carb food list , where values come straight from the USDA. Hope you like the granola! Using the nut and seed quantities listed above, what would you recommend for savory seasonings, and how much? A savory version sounds delicious. Maybe some garlic powder, salt, and Italian seasoning? I made this last night and it is SO good!! I was worried that I blended it all up too much but it turned out amazing.
I am so happy you liked it, Lindsay! I suggest creating individual servings in ziploc bags. It will help prevent overindulging! Have a great day! I am definitely looking forward to making this. My family has an allergy to pecans and walnuts, but almonds do just fine.
Can I sub more almonds into this rather than use the pecans? I have NuNaturals NuStevia white powder. How much would I use instead of the Erythritol? Hi Lisa, You can use my sweetener conversion chart! Let me know how you like the granola! I bought everything to make this. Let me know how it turns out! Molly, I have made this using a hand chopper for nuts…one of those with a jar and chopper…takes several batches to do…then just mix it all up!
I have even chopped by hand with knife…it works! And the pieces are easy to control! I use MyFitnessPal to track my carbs etc for my Keto diet. When I enter the recipe and servings, the carbs net carbs are double what you have listed. Any ideas why this may be? MFP does not usually recognize that sugar alcohols can be excluded from carb counts.
I also added some cinnamon because I love it and is good for blood sugar issues. Otherwise I followed the recipe. It turned out awesome! Since starting Keto, I have greatly missed cereal and so this was a very enjoyable treat. Wow — I cannot wait to make this!!
Any issues doubling this recipe to make more at once? Or efficient, depend on your…. I absoutely love this recipe!
Such a great recipe! I post it and promote on my little low carb blog on FB called low carb craves. Made this now and it came out so good! Hi Mary, It lasts at least a couple weeks. Possibly longer, but it has never lasted beyond that at our house. Aha, the print icon has moved. It used to be on the right side under the title. Sorry about that, we had a redesign recently. The print button is below the image on the recipe card now. My family loved this recipe. Thank you for posting it.
I was motivated to try it after seeing the facebook video. I did eventually find the video on your Facebook page. It would be very helpful if you would either embed or link to the video. Hi Claudia, Sorry about that!
We do post all videos right on the website, but sometimes there is a delay between when it goes on Facebook and when we add it to the website. We are working on adding more. At what point are the pecans added in? Love love this recipe! My husband was desperate for a cereal and this is awesome. I love it for snacking during my work day. Hi Shirley, Yes, use net carbs for the keto diet.
Net carbs are total carbs minus fiber and sugar alcohols. I list net carbs for each recipe. My fiance wanted me to make him some cereal as he starts on his keto journey. This one looked relatively simple so I gave it a try tonight. Subbed macadamia nuts for the hazelnuts and added a small handful of hemp seeds just for fun.
It is so good! Will definitely be putting this on my list of things to make regularly! I bet it will be awesome sprinkled on my homemade Greek yogurt! Hi Becky, The flaxseed meal helps bind it together. You might need an extra egg white. If you wanted to know that, you can weigh the entire batch when you make it, then divide the weight by That will get you the weight of one serving. Regarding making and weighing the total — I would highly recommend doing that always, anyway.
Baking will always result in a slightly different finished product in every kitchen, and even every time you make it. Most obvious is how much moisture is removed from the ingredients while in the oven. You could also get a volumetric measure of servings after that just for fun, but see above about volumetric measures of dry goods especially chunky, variably sized dry goods like this. My kitchen smells divine. Thanks for the recipe.
Once cooled, does this store on the counter or in the fridge? If I was to use Truvia an erythritol and steviol based sweetener , would I still use 6 tbsp? Just wondered what the equivalent of pure erythritol was. Hi Abby, I have a sweetener conversion chart here. The approximate conversion would be 2 tbsp Truvia for this recipe. If I was to use Truvia an erythritol and steviol based sweetener would I still use 6 tbsp?
Hi, Love this recipe. My macros app only calculates 16g of fat though, compared to your 26g. Why would this be? I used almonds, macadamias and a cup of mixed nuts whose nutritional contents are already logged on the app , and almond butter instead of ghee. Would this have made a difference? Ghee has higher fat content. My husband and I have been eating low carb for several months.
Hi Michelle, Mine were roasted and salted, but you could use raw, too. Hi Edith, Sorry to hear that and thanks for letting me know.
The text was showing up dark gray for me, not pale gray. I changed the font and made it solid black to hopefully make it clearer. I hope that helps! I totally agree with you Edith. I like your posts but I have a hard time reading the pale gray printing on the white background. The ads are always very bright and easy to read. My HH is going to love this. Do you think I can add flax seed in with the big nuts at the beginning to get more of a meal?
Hi Suzy, The recipe already uses flaxseed meal rather than whole flax seeds. If you have whole flax seeds, you can make them into a meal in the food processor before you add the nuts. Otherwise, you can also try chopping up the nuts and seeds before mixing with the other ingredients. If you go that route, the resulting granola texture will be a little different compared to a food processor.
I used a food processor partly because it makes both prep time and cleanup a lot faster, but also because that way you get a mix of larger chopped nuts and finer powder. I hope one of the other methods works out for you!

US Customary - Metric. Instructions More tips about this recipe in the post above! Pulse again, stopping when the pecans are in large pieces. Pecans are added later since they are softer. Add the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, erythritol, and golden flaxseed meal. Pulse just until everything is mixed well. You want to have plenty of nut pieces remaining, and most of the seeds should be intact.
Add the egg white to the food processor. Whisk together the melted butter and vanilla extract in a small bowl, and evenly pour that in, too. Pulse a couple times, mix a little from the bottom toward the top with a spatula, then pulse a couple times again.
Repeat as needed until everything is coated evenly. At the end of this step, you'll have a combination of coarse meal and nut pieces, and everything should be a little damp from the egg white and butter. Cool completely before breaking apart into pieces.
The granola will be soft when you remove it from the oven, but will crisp up as it cools. Recipe Notes The nuts and seeds I used were salted. Leave a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. I am so happy you liked it, Hannah!
Thanks for stopping by! I am so happy to hear that, Trina! On my grocery list. I would certainly love to try more. But, by and large, my favorite product is definitely the coconut flour. I buy it by the 4 pack on amazon since we use it so much in our house!! Their products are great. Q-does oatmeal affect your blood sugar a lot? Just curious how strongly it affects you and if you ever eat even a small amount. I am definitely going to make this granola!!
My kids and I both love the stuff. I am so lucky it is located only about a 45 minute drive from where I live. I have more products in my cupboards of their than I can name. I especially like the low carb baking mix. Thank you for the opportunity to win one of the gift cards. I eat it almost daily, whether sprinkling it on top of my cereal, baking it some delicious waffles, or coating tofu!
The granola is as well. I will be making this recipe over the weekend! I, too, LOVE granola and am also grain-free so this is perfect! But I just wanted to stop by and say how gorgeous this is. I love that your mom did the outward bound stuff. I love the idea of a strong woman raising kids, makes me smile. I recently started following your blog and love your low-carb, sugar-free recipe ideas.
I use their golden flaxseed meal religiously, and have also used their coconut flour and unsweetened coconut. Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!
I need to get some more protein into my breakfast…and your granola looks like a delicious way to do so! My version is just full of carbs and not the best way to start the day! It has so much sugar in it for one thing! This is a great idea for a giveaway! I sprinkle it on everything! I liked your Facebook page as well.
I cannot wait to make your PB granola. I eat gluten free, but I usually put oats in my PB granola. This will be a great new option. Looks like you won one of the giftcards. Can you send me your mailing address? Email me at carketch29 at yahoo dot com.
Oh I am seriously trying this recipe!! Favorite Bobs Redmill, right now it has to be coconut and almond flour! Please email me at carketch29 at yahoo dot com. I love their golden flax seed meal! I have Low Carbing Among Friends vol 1. Dog sledding in Yukon! I have so many favorites, but my top two are the oat flour and almond meal. Peanut butter added to anything makes it better and I like that you added protein to the granola…..
I love their almond flour, Hazelnut meal, and coconut flour. Thanks for the recipe! I am in no way gluten intolerant but since January of this year have removed most gluten from my diet because of inspiration from my best friend. She is gluten intolerant and me, being an avid baker, wanted to prove to her that you can still eat wonderful baked treats without getting sick. My 7 month conversion in baking has been challenging and fun! I am not gluten intolerant but am always watching my weight and am concerned about carb and sugar intake so I love to try your recipes!
I recently did the carmel peanut butter bars and they were to die for. I just printed this granola recipe and intend on trying it! Just starting the low-carb, gluten free way of life. I will have to try that for gravy! This recipe looks fabulous!
I look forward to seeing your posts on FB because your picstures always look so yummy and I know they wll be lo carb. If you are ever in Portland, you must have breakfast there. I am a diabetic who had gestational diabetes during my third pregnancy. My two daughters are vegan and one is sensitive to Pnut Butter and the other is allergic to Sundflower Seeds. Now they are a challenge to cook for. Especially since one is prediabetic and the other is hypoglycemic it is a real challenge to keep them full of protein under their dietary constraints.
It gives me a nice boost since I run a lot and eat very little meat. But I had found some low carb happen to be GF recipes. Finally, one day, by chance I found myself in a Whole Foods and standing right in front of the almond flour and coconut flour — and I thought.
BUY the almond flour to see if your recipes are as great as you thought you may never get the stupid homemade almond flour!!!! This granola looks incredible!! I eat their steel cut oats almost every morning!
And I love your story about your mother. I love your website. Your recipes are really terrific. We just started a gluten and casein free diet for our children and love new recipes I can make for my kids. I really like the garbanzo bean flour and the sorghum flour. Great flours for gluten-free baking! They are both so good! I love Bobs Red Mill- flaked coconut, graham flour, tapioca flour, cornmeal, flax meal, the list goes on and on.
What a fantastic recipe for a low-carb granola Carolyn — you always amaze me with your creativity! Wow, too many to choose from. I am a husband and honestly do most of the cooking. I am very health conscious so I also make random baked goods involving protein in some form or another. My husband loves to cook…his only problem is that I do too and I usually take over the kitchen.
BRM is great stuff, very healthy if you can find it at your local grocery store. I love peanut butter granola! I actually love the idea of making a grain free granola with processed nuts! After I eat the enormous batch I made today ;. I adore their gluten-free line. I particularly adore their gf chocolate chip cookie mix for obvious reasons. I ran across your FaceBook site and have tried quite a few of the recipes there and also from this blog.
Great info, which generally helps keep me curb my cravings of carbs. What a Blessing your site and their products are. Now…to find a site that sells willpower to keep me on track! LOL, if you find a place that sells willpower, let me know! I could use some of that at times. I am fascinated that low carb helps battle Fybromyalgia.
Do you follow gluten-free as well? Makes me wonder if gluten has anything to do with it…. For myself, I seem to feel better for the most part while sticking strictly to the very low carb per day. I tend to use Almond and Coconut flours to replace the wheat flour.
Paul St Amand has stated that patients with fibromyalgia tend to have increased carbohydrate cravings and low carbohydrate diets may reduce their pain and fatigue.. In the meantime… ;o. Just discovered your blog, awesome! I can imagine that being vegan and going low carb is pretty tough.
This recipes would easily be something you can make over, just putting in coconut oil for the butter. Have all the ingredients, cant wait to make this granola! I would love it if you would follow me too! Looks like you won one of the giftcards! Please email me at carketch29 at yahoo dot com with your mailing address. I use the coconut flour, guar gum, and oat bran cereal. This recipe is right up my alley. I wonder if it can be dehydrated as well.
Do you soak your nuts overnight? This seems like the perfect recipe to make for my boyfriend and I as we are kick starting our diet! I love the site and will definitely be referencing it more for some healthy low-carb recipes! I found your blog today and am so happy.
Thank you for this Granola recipe as this is what I put in my morning Fage. I just made a batch of this granola and it is delicious. I only had choc protein powder so I used that. I have found that this is unbelievably good on ice-cream. I imagine it would make a great cheesecake base too….. I used my own homemade peanut butter, which also has flaxseed oil.
I added a healthy splash of cinnamon to mine, plus some leftover dried cranberries recipe also from this site. I like it better than the old granola with grain and sugar!
Yes, so yummy I found myself standing over the pan and shoving it in my face every time I walked through the kitchen! Not something I do very often. Good luck to us all!! Love the almond flour!!! This recipe looks Devine. Hi, I have been a lurker on your site for a few months now after searching for low carb recipe substitutes. I have PCOS and thyroid problems, and am a true sugar addict in every sense of the word.
Obviously this is not a good combo…BUT you are one of the people online that have helped me tremendously with managing my health issues and food. Right now in my cupboard I currently have the coconut flour, almond flour, xanthan gum, flax seed meal, and wheat gluten.
I just bought more coconut flour two days ago and it was sold out in the first 3 stores I went to! I appreciate all the effort you put into what you do! Finally made this today and it is yummy! I should have stayed in the kitchen while I secretly snacked because I ended up sharing this with my 5 year old and she can chow down!! Thank you, Carolyn, and keep up the great work! What would you recommend as a substitute for the flax?
Trying to limit my consumption a little bit. Would chia meal have the same effect? Right now my fav is their steel cut oats, Irish Oatmeal. I only have swerve, do I just add a little more of that? For the vanilla whey powder, can I sub it for unflavored whey powder and maybe a tsp of vanilla extract? So excited to try this out!! Your mom sounds like a very inspiring person. Thank you for all you do.
I have been wheat-grain free for only a month but your recipes have been incredibly helpful. You are really making a difference for so many. This muesli is delicious and I love that it is low in carbs but when I entered it in to my food diary it came up as calories per serve. I hope I have done it wrong. Has anyone got a different result? I put these ingredients into MyFitnessPal Recipe Builder and the nutritional data for carbs was much higher than yours.
That is likely because My Fitness Pal is calculating the carbs from the erythritol. Thanks for letting me know. I removed that and it calculated to 12g carbs…closer to your 9. Probably a matter of brands used. I will be trying this today. Are all the nuts and seeds raw before adding? Can this be made into bars? Also do u think that I can use mixed nuts for another version of this?
Can I make this with maple syrup or honey instead of the artificial sweeteners, if so what would be the measurements?
