Keto Granola – Cinnamon & Almond Crunch

I am a firm believer that planning ahead is the key to success on the keto diet. Now that I think about it, planning ahead is the key to success in many areas of life! This Keto granola is fantastic to make a quick batch on the weekend and have for breakfast all week.

Keeping organised and always having something on hand to eat is crucial to avoiding carbs, especially at the start of your keto journey. Keep a small bag of this in your desk drawer, in your handbag or in the fridge – wherever you usually reach for a snack when you are short on time.

I serve this with Nudie Vanilla Coconut Yoghurt, but works just as well with any yoghurt – always check the sugar levels though. Coconut yoghurt is really high in fat and low in carbs, so while it is expensive you only need a small amount to feel full.

    what size is the serving?

      Hi Liz

      I don’t have an exact serving size, as depending on how you pack the nuts and seeds will vary your final product weight. I would estimate, however that you would get about 10 x 1/4 cup servings as mentioned in the recipe.

    Thank you Rachel for this recipe. I made a batch and have been having it with Coyo Vanilla yoghurt from Woolworths topped with strawberries and raspberries. I have been looking forward to breakfast each morning, the combination is so good. I am so glad to have found an Australian website for keto, your recipes all look so good. Thank you for sharing your experience. 😊😊👍

    Thanks for the great recipe I love it. Such an easy snack or breakfast . I added a tablespoon of powdered xylitol to my butter mixture and it was delicious
