Low-Carb Granola

Low-Carb Granola

Today I propose a recipe for low-carb granola, carbohydrates and sugar free, suitable for fasting, very fragrant, tasty and crunchy. It's a lot more filling because it lacks carbohydrates and, combined with a fatter Greek yogurt, cottage cheese or vegetable milk, it can be a healthy and special breakfast or dinner.

When I also want a touch of sweetness (for a healthy dessert), I add a little  low carb jam.

Ingredients

Coconut chips
100 g
Almonds
100 g
better take almond flakes - or cut the whole almonds into thin slices
Flax seeds
50 g
would be good to crush them a little, they will incorporate better
Pumpkin seeds
50 g
Walnuts
100 g
Hazelnuts
100 g
Sunflower seeds kernels
100 g
Coconut butter
2 tbsp
Cocoa powder
1 tbsp
Cinnamon powder
1 tsp
Salt
0.5 tsp

Step by step

1

Coconut oil or butter normally has a lard-like texture. So, before using it here, melt in a bain-marie, in the microwave or over very low heat.

2

I used almond flakes, if you have whole almonds cut them into thin slices.

3

Don't ignore the coconut chips, they are really special and make this granola tastier.

I bought some very cheap online.

4

Cut walnuts into small pieces with a knife.

5

Place all the nuts and seeds in a large baking sheet.

6

Over the top, spread cocoa, cinnamon and a little salt.

7

Mix well with a spoon.

8

Now pour over the melted coconut oil.

9

Stir well again and place the sheet in the preheated oven at 150 C for 15-20 minutes.

10

During this time, mix 2-3 more times in the pan, for the granola to brown evenly.

Don't go too far from the oven, it can burn quickly!

11

You can tell it's done by the smell. I usually don't roast it very much, I remove from the oven and let sit in the hot sheet on the table. While it's cooling down, it's still cooking passively.

12

When it's completely cooled, store in a jar or airtight container.

Serve, as I said in the description, with yogurt, cottage cheese, vegetable milk etc.

Enjoy!
