I am not sure you can call it muesli, granola, or cereal but it reminds me of the usual healthy breakfast I had each day before going to school. Making granola at home is cheaper than buying keto granola from the store. Buy all the ingredients in bulk to make a bigger batch. This low carb granola recipe is a staple in our house and I make it super often!

Is Granola Keto?

No, store-bought granola is not keto since it’s high in sugar, loaded with unhealthy fats and oils, and other fillers that are not necessary. According to the USDA website, half a cup of granola has more than 40 grams of carbs while this homemade keto granola has only 5 grams of net carbs for the same quantity.

keto granola ingredients
  • Nuts: I used a mix of almonds, almond flakes for texture, pecans, and almond flour, but you can use walnuts, hazelnuts, or cashews.
  • Seeds: sunflower Seeds, Chia Seeds, Flax Seeds
  • Coconut Flakes – read the labels and choose unsweetened coconut flakes.
  • Eggs – helps all the ingredients bind together.
  • Coconut Oil – adds a lovely sweet flavor, but you can use avocado oil and even butter or ghee.
  • Sugar-Free Syrup

How to Make Crunchy Keto Granola?

This recipe is super simple, and you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen. You can easily use a food processor to mix all the ingredients, but I love to chop them using a sharp knife.

how to make keto granola

There are two ways to make this recipe:

  1. Chop the nuts in a food processor until they are still chunky, you don’t want a fine powder or use asharp knife cut the nuts into little pieces.
  2. Find a large bowl throw all the ingredients and give them a thorough mix. I used two eggs to help everything bind togeter.
  3. After you add the coconut oil and the sugar-free syrup you should get a slightly wet mixture. If your “dough” is too wet add some coconut flour to absorb most of the moisture.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and evenly spread the granola like in the picture above. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until it begins to harden. Once you get it out of the oven allow it to cool down completely. Using your hands break the granola in big chunks.
  5. Always keep an eye on the granola because nuts and seeds burn quicker than wheat. You’ll want to make sure that the mixture is cooked in the middle too because the edges burn faster.

I made this yesterday. I tasted absolutely awesome. Just wants to ask if you could help me work out how many grams would half a cup be?

Hi! Amazing recipe – I wanted to know if there is a substitute for the sugar-free syrup? It’s quite hard to get where I live. Any advice is welcome thank you!

You can skip the sugar-free syrup and add some extra sweetener. The best keto granola!
