Low-Carb Granola Tips

Here are some questions people often ask about making and eating keto-friendly granola.

Customize it

This is a really easy recipe to change up. If you don’t like pecans, don’t use them. It’s that easy. And remember, if you don’t use pecans, it changes the macros, so you might have to recalculate them.

Remember To Stir It

Stir the granola every ten minutes as it bakes. This will prevent it from burning.

Add Chocolate Chips

If you don’t mind a few more carbs, add a few tablespoons of sugar-free chocolate chips. If you add them, measure how many you add and recalculate the carbs.

Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need from the store before you make this recipe. Read through the list of ingredients below (we will also share any swaps/substitutions you can make).

  • Almonds: Thinly sliced almonds will taste the best in the granola.
  • Pecans: Either buy pre-chopped pecans or chop them at home.
  • Walnuts: Chopped walnuts are low in carbs, so they are a fantastic choice in the granola.
  • Macadamia Nuts: Since they are higher in carbs, you’ll want to use fewer macadamia nuts.
  • Pumpkin Seeds: Unsalted, raw pumpkin seeds are better.
  • Unsweetened Shredded Coconut: Make sure it is pure shredded coconut without any added ingredients.
  • Chia Seeds: These are high in fat and protein.
  • Hemp Hearts: These are optional, but they’re a fantastic source of protein.
  • Almond Flour: Make sure you use blanched almond flour, not almond meal.
  • Egg White: Egg white is lower in cholesterol than a whole egg.
  • Sweetener Blend: Use your favorite sweetener (this keto sweeteners guide will help)
  • Butter: Use full fat, salted butter.
  • Vanilla Extract: This adds flavor without adding carbs.
  • Cinnamon: You can add more cinnamon without worrying about adding more carbs.
  • Sugar-Free Maple Syrup: Our favorite one is from Wholesome Yum.

  1. This sounds very good and I look forward to trying it. Please stop saying things about the cholesterol in egg yolks though. It is not harmful and actually full of a lot more nutrition. We make our own cholesterol so eating less has very little or any effect on our levels.

    1. Thank you Edie. We didn’t mean to vilify egg yolks, thank you for the reminder. We agree with you, the cholesterol in egg yolks is not bad.
