Super Crunchy Keto Granola Recipe – Only 5g net carbs

I am so excited to share with you one of the recipes that saved me from eating eggs and bacon for breakfast every day: keto granola. Packed with fiber and only 5g net carbs for half a cup, these crunchy slightly sweet “cereals” are perfect in the morning served with low carb yogurt or unsweetened nut milk.

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.

My mom always added nuts & seeds to my cereal bowl because “it helps your brain”. If you have ever read the ingredients lists of the store bought granola or muesli you’ll notice how much sugar it’s in them.

Half a cup of granola has more than 40 grams carbs while this homemade keto granola has only five grams of net carbs for the same quantity.

How to make crunchy keto granola?

I am always short on time because of my full-time job as a programmer I try to find different ways to reduce the time spent in the kitchen.

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.
  2. Using your sharp knife cut the nuts into little pieces.

Find a large bowl and throw all the ingredients and give them a thorough mix. I used two small eggs but you can use a large one.

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.

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.

Store the granola in an airtight container for up to one week, in the fridge for two or in the freezer for 2 months.

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.
