Keto Friendly Granola (Gluten-Free, Vegetarian)

Print

Nuts and seeds are supported in research to lower risk of cardiovascular disease, inflammation and overall mortality or death. The walnuts and chia seeds in this keto friendly granola are especially potent sources of plant-based omega 3 fatty acids and nuts and seeds in general can lower LDL cholesterol while raising our HDL for overall cardiovascular protection. The incorporation of dark chocolate in the form of cacao nibs adds additional protection for the cardiovascular system as magnesium can aid in relaxation of vessels and lower blood pressure!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This keto-friendly granola is a nut-lovers dream as it is loaded with macadamia and walnuts! If you are following the keto diet it is a great breakfast or snack option as it contains only 2 g Net Carbs and 1 g of sugar. It also has 9% of our daily Iron needs per serving which is a mineral many of us do not get enough of. Lastly, this keto granola is not only tasty but should keep you full and satiated with its 5 g protein and 4 g fiber per serving!

    How big is your “serve” and how many serves do you get from a batch…I am using a tablespoon on top of yogurt and forgot to measure out quantity before I started to use.

    Suggestions for making granola when you have a nut allergy???? What replacements work well, if any? I have yet to find a great replacement for nuts. Also can’t do anything with gluten.
