Keto Cereal

Years ago, I tried various recipes to make muesli, cereal, granola breakfast, or cornflakes for my daughter. Something she would like. But it never went into positivity. Even though I thought they were 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 decided to eat different types of muesli and 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. 

And I was adamant about getting it right for her. 

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 inspiration, I think I found the right one.

At least I can see that those are the best since my daughter has been eating them now daily already for the last three 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. Or pancakes for a change.

But NO WAY.

She wakes up every morning already talking about them, and as I see it, it will take a while until I convince her to give breakfast a bit of a change. The last time, I decided to double the recipe because of how quickly they were gone. The best part is that they are extra crunchy. That is something I have been missing before.

Once you try them, you will not go back to anything.

Keto Muesli Granola 

This recipe is on our Top 10 Best Low Carb & Keto Recipes of 2018

Sugar-Free Muesli 

5 Reasons you should make your sugar-free muesli.

It is:

  • The best, crunchiest, and pretty easy to make
  • Not too expensive compared to the Sugar-Free Granolas you buy in the stores
  • Made with all of the fresh ingredients
  • Stores in your Pantry for weeks
  • You can alternate all to your exact taste
  • 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.

I have added a few dehydrated raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries, just for the color and feeling, or a regular store-bought granola.

Difference between Granola and Muesli

Even though they both are very similar, granola is sweetened and baked while muesli is not.

Can I eat Granola on a Low Carb Diet?

You can have breakfast muesli or granola if you make it yourselves. Homemade gluten-free granola is, in any case, the best you can do. First, you know exactly what goes in, and you can control it fully. Also, with our high protein muesli being able to store for weeks, there is no reason you would buy one.

Is Keto Granola Sugar-Free?

Because of using all of the keto-approved ingredients, including the sugar alternatives, makes our Crunchy Low Carb Granola Recipe entirely Sugar-Free.

Calories in muesli

Our recipe gives you a perfect 281 homemade granola calories, great to fill you up until lunch. 

Carbs in granola

One portion gives you 5 grams of carbohydrates and 3 grams of fiber. 

To get the 2 grams of net carbs per bowl is extraordinary, especially if taking into account that this muesli granola is high in protein, grain-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, low-carb, and diabetic-friendly. 

What sweetener to use for Keto Granola?

Various powdered sweeteners could be used for this recipe. I have already experimented with Sukrin, Swerve, Besti, and Lakanto, and they all worked fine. Make sure your sweetener is powdered, so it is easier for the mass to get combined thoroughly.

Variations of Low Carb Granola Cereal

Keeping the base of the recipe, which is egg, coconut oil, and almond meal, the same, you can add nuts of your choice. 

If you wish, add more: 

  • Cinnamon
  • Cacao for a chocolate flavor
  • Nutmeg
  • Chia seeds
  • Hemp hearts
  • Flaxseeds
  • Additional seeds 

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.

Mixing dry Ingredients

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

What can you eat muesli with?

How to eat muesli is no news to us, but you can combine it with our Keto Instant Pot Greek Yogurt or any of the chosen Low Carb Milk Alternatives.

You can also make your nutty milk with our great step-by-step instructions on making coconut milk from scratch, which goes perfectly with our low-carb crunchy clusters granola. 

How to make Keto Granola Bar from this recipe?

Using the same steps, you can make a perfect keto granola bar. 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, spread the muesli a bit thicker onto a sheet and bake the first round. Take it out of the oven, and gently cut through the sheet into logs using a sharp knife. Place it into the oven for the second crunch and enjoy. 

Coconuts substitution

With this recipe, you can use any kind of nuts you like instead of coconut. If you are not a fan of coconut, it is ok if left out the coconut chips and shredded coconut. I would suggest the almonds be sliced into flakes for flakes to give it that granola feel. You will still end up having an amazing keto nut granola.

My Granola is not Crunchy enough.

You have not baked it long enough or 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 also perfect for this recipe. 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 to a few months. ( That’s what I have done).

If fully cooled and properly stored, they crunch all the time perfectly. 

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. 

Other sweet breakfast ideas

If you are still looking for some sweet breakfast, why not look into our Chia Coco or Rainbow Low Carb Chia Pudding.

We have a great recipe on How to make Keto Churro Pork Rinds, which are also perfect for adding to this Granola. I just break them into small pieces and add them to our breakfast. Yum.

  1. I love making my own granola, and I’m always looking for new recipe ideas. Thanks so much for this fun twist! I will be making it soon!

      Yes, anything homemade is always better than from the shop. And if it is also healthy, we have a winner.

  2. I’m always looking for new variations of granola to try and this will definitely be my next one! I love all the nutty flavors in this and the use of coconut oil! I bet the flavors are out of this world!

  3. Okay, everytime I think I have the right ingredients to make these low-carb recipes, I run into a glitch. I have almond flour, is it the same thing as almond meal?

    Reply
    • Dear Ceci,

      Almond Flour is almonds without skin (white in color) and is ground more finely. Almond meal is the same thing, but with the skins left, so the color is a bit darker. In this recipe, you can use any of those as long as they are ground almonds. Hope that helps.

      Have a great day

  4. I’m not a fan of coconut, would it be ok f I left out the coconut chips and shredded coconut or is that a big part of the flavor? Any substitutions?

    Reply
    • Dear Kim,

      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. Hope it helps

  5. Omg i love this granola its so yummy. Its great to have a quick breakfast now, im so happy.
    Thank you for the recipe.
    Just a question how many serving do you get out of it ?

    Reply
    • Dear Bonnie,

      I am happy you like it. Once you try, you will be hooked. I have calculated this for 10 servings, but normally I place it into a big Mason Jars and my daughter takes it from there.
      Do let me know once you will make them.

      Have a great day

  6. Hi!
    I love the granola recipe, except for the coconut, can I leave it out or replace it with something else?
    Also, I have a a granola bar pan from pampered chef could I use that instead of crumbling it up?
    Thank you!

    Reply
    • Dear Ruth,

      Sure you can leave coconut here. In general, just use the nuts and seeds you prefer. If you keep the measurements same, there should be not a problem

      Reply
  7. Hello! This recipe sounds delicious, except I do not like hazelnuts. Is there another low-carb nut substitute you can recommend? Thanks!

    Reply
    • Dear Natalie,

      This recipe is prepared in a way, that you can change your nuts options without a problem. Just keep the amount sam, so you do get the perfect results. But feel free to change the hazelnuts to any other nuts you prefer. Also, you have to consider recalculating your macros if it is important for you. That would definitely change a bit.

      Reply
  8. Hi there. I just tried this granola recipe and after 25 minutes in the oven at 302 degrees F, about half of it is burned. I’m not aware of my oven being hotter than it should be, as this has not happened with any other recipe. Please advise me on what could’ve gone wrong.

    Reply
    • Dear Sylvia,

      First of all, I am sorry for what has happened. I bake those regularly and always as per the recipe on the blog. The only thing I can think of is, that probably nuts were cut into tiny pieces and not enough of it? So it has spread thinly and therefore burned? This is just me fully guessing, but I have really no idea what could have happened.

      Reply
  9. Thank you, Zuzana. I loved the granola and am going to try again with a double tray and lower temperature. I’ll let you know if that helps.

    Reply
  10. Dear Zuzana,
    So, I made the granola again yesterday. I used double trays and did the first baking at 275 F and the second at 200 F. It came out very nice. I thought of something else that could have gone wrong my first time. I had used Brown Sugar Swerve instead of Confectioners Swerve. This time I used Confectioners Swerve as well as the temperature change and double trays. It’s wonderful!
    Blessings,
    Sylvia
