The story goes:
Years ago, I have tried various recipes to make granola or Cornflakes for my daughter for Breakfast. Something she would like. But it never went in a positive way. Even though I thought they are perfect, she never really liked any of them.
Then came last Christmas, when we went for a skiing trip to a hotel, where all the kids from our friends have decided to eat different types of granolas for Breakfast. Every single day. And of course, my daughter seeing this, wanted to copy. So she kept asking for them more and more.
Once we came from the trip, my trials started. And because I just got fresh walnuts from my mum, those were the main base to try it with. After a few attempts and some inspirations, I think I found the right one.
At least I can see that those are really the best since my daughter eats them now on a daily basis already for the last 3 weeks. Yesterday I even tried to convince her to have something else for breakfast. Something she used to love before. Like those buns with bacon and eggs.
But NO WAY.
She wakes up every morning already talking about them and as I see it, it will take a while until I will convince her to give breakfast a bit of a change. The last time, I decided to double the recipe, because of how quickly they are gone. The best part is that they are really crunchy. That is something I have been missing before.
Once you try them, you will not go back to anything.
I have also added a few Freeze-Dried berries, just for the color and feeling or a real shop bought granola.
You certainly can, if you make it yourselves. Homemade Granola is, in any case, the best you can do. First of all, you do know exactly what goes in and you can control it fully. Also with our Keto Granola being able to store for weeks, there is no reason why would you buy one.
Because of using all of the Keto approved ingredients, including the sugar alternatives, this makes our Crunchy Low Carb Granola Recipe fully Sugar-Free.
Combine it with our Keto Instant Pot Greek Yogurt or any of the chosen Low Carb Milk Alternatives.
You can also make your own Nutty milk with our great Step by step instructions on how to make Coconut Milk from Scratch, which goes perfectly with our Low Carb Crunchy Clusters Granola.
Portion them into a ziplock bag for your snacks on the go.
Take them to the cinema or whenever you travel. They are a perfect companion to your daily lifestyle.
Using the same steps, you can make a perfect Keto Granola bar out of this. Just place them into a silicone mold before baking and you are good to go. Depending on the thickness of the bars, you might add up the baking time.
If you do not have the silicone mold, just spread the granola a bit thicker onto a sheet and bake the first round. Take it out of the oven, using a sharp knife gently cut through the sheet into logs. Place it into the oven for the second crunch and enjoy.
Various powdered sweeteners could be used for this recipe. I have already experimented with Sukrin, Swerve as well as Lakanto and they all worked fine. Make sure your sweetener is powdered, so it is easier for the mass to get combined fully.
Keeping the base of the recipe, which is egg, coconut oil and almond meal the same, you can add nuts of your choice. Add more cinnamon if you wish, cacao for chocolate flavor, nutmeg, chia seeds, flaxseeds, additional seeds you like. Your imagination here could be endless. Use your favorites and experiment. And shared with us. I would love to try other combinations.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTION FOR LOW CARB GRANOLA MAKING
First Step: Prepare Ingredients
Cut all of the nuts into small pieces. Prepare all your ingredients for easy assembly.
Second Step: Mix Dry ingredients
Add all of the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix.
Third Step: Add Egg and Oil
Once all is fully mixed, take an egg and with your handheld Mixer mix it until fluffy. Add it into the mixing bowl with the dry mix. Add coconut oil and using your spatula, fully mix everything, making sure the eggs and coconut oil are spread fully and covering all of the nuts.
Fourth Step: Spread and Bake
Once all is mixed, spread it on a baking tray covered with a silicone baking sheet. You can also use a parchment paper if you prefer. Silicon sheet is great for this recipe because it will ensure that nothing will be stuck on a sheet once you are going to break the granola into smaller pieces.
Place it into the oven and bake.
Fifth Step: Break into smaller Pieces
Once the granola is baked for the first round, take it out and using either spatula or as I have used, cake decorating scraper, gently lift the Granola sheet and break it into smaller pieces. How small the pieces are, depends on how big clusters you would like to have in your Granola. Try to break the whole sheet into similar size clusters and spread it evenly on a baking sheet again.
Sixth Step: Bake again
Bake for the second time. Once baked, take it out and let it cool.
Seventh Step: Cool, mix, add Berries and Store
Once your Keto Granola Clusters have cooled down, place them into a mixing bowl, add Freeze Dried Berries and gently mix them into the Granola.
Fully Mixed, place all of the Low Carb Granola into airtight containers, best Mason Jars and store in your Keto Pantry for several weeks to come.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
I’m not a fan of coconut, is it ok if I left out the coconut chips and shredded coconut or is that a big part of the flavor? Any substitutions?
It is not a problem at all. With this recipe, you can use any kind of nuts you like instead of coconut. For the flakes, I would suggest the almonds sliced into flakes to give it that granola feel.
My Granola is not Crunchy enough.
You have not baked it long enough or you have spread it too thick. Try separating your mixture into two separate baking sheets and bake.
How to store Sugar-Free Granola?
The best to store this Low Carb Granola to retain crunchiness is in an Airtight Container. I use Mason Jars for almost everything and they are perfect for this recipe as well. Store the Jars in your Keto Pantry for weeks to come.
How long can you store Keto Granola?
This Keto Granola Recipe can be stored for a very long time. From several weeks, for up to a few months. ( That’s what I have done).
If fully cooled and properly stored, they perfectly crunch at all the time.
Can Keto Granola be frozen?
It can, but they will lose the crunch. If you still prefer this method, you might need to place them into the oven once they de-freeze to regain the crunchiness.
We have a great recipe on How to make Keto Churro Pork Rinds, which are perfect to add into this Granola as well. I just break them into small pieces and add them to our breakfast. Yum.
