This Grain Free Low Carb Keto Granola is SO crispy and crunchy! You’ll never guess it’s secretly healthy, gluten free and sugar free and paleo and vegan friendly!
PIN Grain Free Low Carb Keto Granola
Liiiiike, the kind that doesn’t cut the inside of your MOUTH OPEN.
Really. What did we ever do to granola that it would be so mean as to rip open our insides as we unsuspectingly munch through it, trusting that it has our best interests at HEART?
NOPE. IT DOES NOT.
It’s ALMOST as bad as Captain Crunch. <– Don’t lie. You KNOW that you know the exact cereal-mouth-pain that I am talking about.
Anyway. This low carb granola recipe is NOT that kind of granola.
It’s crispy and CRUNCHY, like a deconstructed sugar free keto low carb granola bars recipe, or a bowl of homemade keto low carb cereal, yet not sharp and OUCHY. It’s perfectly sweet and CLUSTERY-Y, yet is totally SUGAR FREE and GRAIN FREE.
Yeuuuuup. Granola without grains is a really thing that exists in your hungry-morning-breakfast-eater life and this sugar free granola recipe proves that it’s JUST AS DELICIOUS.
Unlike a typical granola recipe, that boasts a mega load of oats, T-H-I-S grain free low carb keto granola uses NUTS and SEEDS to give it that addicting, CRAVE-ABLE CRUNCH that any normal, granola-eating person expects when they stack it HIGH on their morning bowl of Greek yogurt. It’s kind of like no oats paleo oatmeal, but even LOWER carb!
Your inner texture freak is SRSLY not gonna know that ANYTHING is awry and that no oatmeal was used in the making of this sugar free granola recipe.
Not that I have anything against oatmeal. I could eat funfetti protein overnight oats or cookie dough overnight oats for A LOT of breakfasts. But, sometimes a girl just needs to switch it UP you know?
Punchy, flavorful coconut flakes, heart-healthy, roasty cashews and almonds, crunchy, good-for-your-gut chia seeds and a nourishing swirl of creamy coconut oil jive along to the breakfast beat, mixing and mingling with the flax egg and baking up to golden-brown, roasty yumminess, in a way that is going to make you RLY RLY excited to be eating nuts and seeds. AKA: BIRD FOOD.
Liiike, if this is how birds eat? SIGN ME UP.
The “flax egg” is the secret weapon to getting this keto granola to form those coveted big, CRUNCHY, clustery pieces of magic. It helps everything stick together JUUUUUST so.
Real life talk: do you really trust granola that doesn’t have clusters? Exactly. You do not.
Make SURE you push a few pieces together during the bake-stir-bake-stir-bake-stir (annoying? Yes. Necessary? Very.) situation that the recipe calls for. This will ENSURE you cluster SUCCESS.
Insider secret for winning the “crunchy granola” championship: put the granola into the refrigerator once it’s cooked. This hardens the coconut oil leading to hitting the crispy MOTHERLOAD. <– You don’t have to keep it stored in the fridge for ever and ever. Just until the coconut oil does it thang.
Things to note: the inner part of my soul that loves chocolate RLLLLY wanted to mix some chocolate chips in (post baking, of course) but, due to many of you doing the “sugar free” thang, I quieted that voice.
If that is not you, that suggestion comes HIGHLY, well, SUGGESTED.
But, if you are a sugar-free person and chose to forgo the chocolate, we can still be internet BFFs.
That just means more chocolate chips left in the world for ME.
3 cheers for CHAMPIONING breakfast.
No cut-up mouth business required.
