Sick of eggs and bacon for breakfast? We know it sounds great, but too much of the same thing can be a bad thing over time. If you’re looking to step up your breakfast game, try this fantastic keto granola!
You’re going to start by chopping the nuts. Mix everything up in a big bowl. You can substitute other nuts and seeds, make sure they’re keto friendly and be mindful of your macros.
Also, if there is a nut or seed you don’t care for on our ingredient list, you can leave it out, and add extra of another nut or seed that you do like.
We use Lakanto brand sugar-free syrup for this recipe. It is a delicious keto friendly option, sweetened with monk fruit. If you don’t like maple, you can add a little more melted butter or coconut oil.
Feel free to use another extract of your choosing, like coconut, vanilla, or almond. Just note that extracts are very concentrated, so the proportions will not be the same, we would say try a teaspoon or two.
Baking on parchment works best for this recipe. You’ll have to keep an eye on this granola in the oven, as it will burn if overcooked. We check every 5-10 minutes, occasionally stirring, for a total of about 20-30 minutes.
We enjoy a bowl of this granola with a few berries and some cold unsweetened almond milk. You can also eat it dry or over a low carb yogurt.
Although ideal for breakfast, we find it's a pretty awesome late night snack, as well!
