I started doing Keto last month and am really enjoying the high-quality whole foods.. plus they’re guilt free!
When shopping for a wholesome granola I noticed how expensive the ones marketed as “Keto” are, and they’re not all Keto friendly like advertised because of their high carbohydrates and/or sugars.
This recipe isn’t hard/crunchy/dry like most out there – it’s buttery and feels like it melts in your mouth — sooo good!
This recipe makes 24 servings (1/3 cup or 35g) and cost me about $15.87 to make. Costco sells a “Keto Nut Granola” that ends up being about the same cost per serving BUT after making this granola I won’t ever need to try another granola again (even if I wasn’t on Keto). The Costco granola also has 11g carbs compared to this recipe which has only 5.6g (2.6g net carbs).
Here are the products I used:
All the dry ingredients:
- 1-1/2 cup raw almonds (214g)
- 1-1/2 cup pecans (156g)
- 1/2 cup macadamia nuts (63g)
- 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (45g)
- 1/3 cup sunflower seeds (45g)
- 1/3 cup sesame seeds (46g)
- 4 tbsp flax seed, ground (33g)
- 2 tbsp hemp seeds (19g)
- 1 1/4 cup coconut flakes, unsweetened (122g)
- 1/3 cup monkfruit sweetener (67g)
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp sea salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup coconut oil (120ml)
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
- Chop almonds, pecans and macadamia nuts to size preference; add into stand mixing bowl.
- Add pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, flax and hemp seeds. Add coconut flakes, monkfruit sweetener, cinnamon and sea salt.
- Melt coconut oil in a glass measuring cup. Crack egg into oil and beat together with a fork. Mix in vanilla. Pour oil mixture over nut/seed mixture.
- Stir on low until all ingredients are well combined.
- Dump ingredients out on a parchment lined baking sheet and smooth into an even layer.
- Bake for 30 minutes, turning granola over with a spatula halfway through..
- Remove pan from oven and lift parchment to break up granola so it doesn't dry in big chunks. Let cool. Store in a sealed bag or container inside refrigerator for up to 10 days. You may freeze for longer storage.
You can get creative and add/omite any seeds/nuts of your choosing! You can also add dried berries or chocolate chips after it bakes. Be creative!
