How To Make Low Carb Keto Granola
Leave this field empty. They were out of this world too. Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful recipes. Super easy to make. Lovely with fruit and Greek yogurt.
How to Make It
Used a combo of sweeteners: Next time will grind ingredients separately to get a more chunky result. Let me know if it works! Which ones have you tried? I have a sweetener guide here that might help. You deserve a medal for this recipe!!! It exceeded my expectations! It made enough to completely fill an extra large rectangle Tupperware.
I was obsessed with natures valley granola before I went Keto and this is the same exact look and texture but this tastes even better! Thank you, thank you, thank you! This granola is the best on mornings when I would like cereal with almond milk! I rationed the servings in snack bags and my family eats it as snacks, too. Made it three times already! Your recipes are the best! Hi Wynette, All my nutrition info comes from the USDA database and you can find a summary of carb counts in individual foods in the keto low carb food list here.
I was wondering if you should refrigerate to store granola. Also, can you freeze it? Do you have any idea how long it keeps?
You could freeze it if you want it to keep for a really long time, but it keeps in the pantry just fine for several weeks. Hi Amber, Yes, that will be fine! Golden just has a milder flavor that I like better, but the regular kind works just fine. Thank you for posting your recipe! I cannot wait to try it! I literally copied and pasted the ingredients from your post into my fitness pal. I deleted the eryithrol and it calculated 8. Please let me know what you think! Hi Paula, Yes, you can exclude the erythritol.
You can see breakdown of the carb counts I use in my low carb food list , where values come straight from the USDA. Hope you like the granola! Using the nut and seed quantities listed above, what would you recommend for savory seasonings, and how much?
A savory version sounds delicious. Maybe some garlic powder, salt, and Italian seasoning? I made this last night and it is SO good!! I was worried that I blended it all up too much but it turned out amazing. I am so happy you liked it, Lindsay! I suggest creating individual servings in ziploc bags. It will help prevent overindulging! Have a great day! I am definitely looking forward to making this.
My family has an allergy to pecans and walnuts, but almonds do just fine. Can I sub more almonds into this rather than use the pecans? I have NuNaturals NuStevia white powder.
How much would I use instead of the Erythritol? Hi Lisa, You can use my sweetener conversion chart! Let me know how you like the granola! I bought everything to make this. Let me know how it turns out! Molly, I have made this using a hand chopper for nuts…one of those with a jar and chopper…takes several batches to do…then just mix it all up!
I have even chopped by hand with knife…it works! And the pieces are easy to control! I use MyFitnessPal to track my carbs etc for my Keto diet. When I enter the recipe and servings, the carbs net carbs are double what you have listed. Any ideas why this may be? MFP does not usually recognize that sugar alcohols can be excluded from carb counts. I also added some cinnamon because I love it and is good for blood sugar issues.
Otherwise I followed the recipe. It turned out awesome! Since starting Keto, I have greatly missed cereal and so this was a very enjoyable treat. Wow — I cannot wait to make this!! Any issues doubling this recipe to make more at once?
Or efficient, depend on your…. I absoutely love this recipe! Such a great recipe! I post it and promote on my little low carb blog on FB called low carb craves. Made this now and it came out so good! Hi Mary, It lasts at least a couple weeks. Possibly longer, but it has never lasted beyond that at our house. Aha, the print icon has moved.
It used to be on the right side under the title. Sorry about that, we had a redesign recently. The print button is below the image on the recipe card now. My family loved this recipe. Thank you for posting it. I was motivated to try it after seeing the facebook video.
I did eventually find the video on your Facebook page. It would be very helpful if you would either embed or link to the video. Hi Claudia, Sorry about that! We do post all videos right on the website, but sometimes there is a delay between when it goes on Facebook and when we add it to the website.
We are working on adding more. At what point are the pecans added in? Love love this recipe! My husband was desperate for a cereal and this is awesome. I love it for snacking during my work day. Hi Shirley, Yes, use net carbs for the keto diet. Net carbs are total carbs minus fiber and sugar alcohols. I list net carbs for each recipe. My fiance wanted me to make him some cereal as he starts on his keto journey.
This one looked relatively simple so I gave it a try tonight. Subbed macadamia nuts for the hazelnuts and added a small handful of hemp seeds just for fun. It is so good! Will definitely be putting this on my list of things to make regularly! I bet it will be awesome sprinkled on my homemade Greek yogurt! Hi Becky, The flaxseed meal helps bind it together. You might need an extra egg white. If you wanted to know that, you can weigh the entire batch when you make it, then divide the weight by That will get you the weight of one serving.
Regarding making and weighing the total — I would highly recommend doing that always, anyway. Baking will always result in a slightly different finished product in every kitchen, and even every time you make it. Most obvious is how much moisture is removed from the ingredients while in the oven.
You could also get a volumetric measure of servings after that just for fun, but see above about volumetric measures of dry goods especially chunky, variably sized dry goods like this. My kitchen smells divine. Thanks for the recipe.
Once cooled, does this store on the counter or in the fridge? If I was to use Truvia an erythritol and steviol based sweetener , would I still use 6 tbsp? Just wondered what the equivalent of pure erythritol was. Hi Abby, I have a sweetener conversion chart here.
The approximate conversion would be 2 tbsp Truvia for this recipe. If I was to use Truvia an erythritol and steviol based sweetener would I still use 6 tbsp? Hi, Love this recipe.
My macros app only calculates 16g of fat though, compared to your 26g. Why would this be? I used almonds, macadamias and a cup of mixed nuts whose nutritional contents are already logged on the app , and almond butter instead of ghee.
Would this have made a difference? Ghee has higher fat content. My husband and I have been eating low carb for several months. Hi Michelle, Mine were roasted and salted, but you could use raw, too. Hi Edith, Sorry to hear that and thanks for letting me know.
The text was showing up dark gray for me, not pale gray. I changed the font and made it solid black to hopefully make it clearer. I hope that helps! I totally agree with you Edith. I like your posts but I have a hard time reading the pale gray printing on the white background. The ads are always very bright and easy to read.
My HH is going to love this. Do you think I can add flax seed in with the big nuts at the beginning to get more of a meal? Hi Suzy, The recipe already uses flaxseed meal rather than whole flax seeds. If you have whole flax seeds, you can make them into a meal in the food processor before you add the nuts. Otherwise, you can also try chopping up the nuts and seeds before mixing with the other ingredients.
If you go that route, the resulting granola texture will be a little different compared to a food processor. I used a food processor partly because it makes both prep time and cleanup a lot faster, but also because that way you get a mix of larger chopped nuts and finer powder.
I hope one of the other methods works out for you!

Kate, I have been an evangelist of your granola for years, so when I see you post a new riff, I am all in! Seriously though, this one is amazing. I used evoo, and loved the slightly grassy note that it brought.
Thank you, Charlotte for your kind words. Saw this recipe and marched right into the kitchen to make it. I roughly chopped the whole raw almonds and used half barley flakes and half thick rolled oaks. It took a full half hour in the oven to get toasty.
It cooled to a perfect crunch. Diced dried apricots finished it off. I love your granola and have been making a batch weekly and have shared your recipe and blog with several friends. I noticed the amount of vanilla for this version is much more than your standard recipe. Is this correct or could it be a mistake? I also have your cookbook and love it! No, that is not a mistake: I really like how the extra vanilla and orange work together.
Just want to give you a general shout out for completely rockin it — I love your blog and have been making many recipes from your cookbook too and each time my mind is blown.
Looking forward to see what brings! You have a gift. Thank you for sharing it with all of us! Wow, this looks like the real thing. I love cinnamon-y granola, but a punch of citrus sounds like the perfect way to switch things up. The orange is so good! Let me know what you think when you try it! Very easy to make. The vibrant orange flavour makes this granola very special. Lovely with fruit and Greek yogurt. It really benefits the flavor when it is cooked. However, if you need to cut back then do it: This granola is amazing.
I had some with a bowl of plain Greek yogurt this morning and have been sneaking into the kitchen to snack on it. So easy to make and so darn good. Thank you for the recipe! If you would want to leave a star review since you liked it so much, I would appreciate it!
My partner makes granola for us every week. I saw this one and sent it to him right away to make this week. He always uses maple syrup because we find honey makes the granola stickier than we like. The vanilla and orange is such a nice change from the usual cinnamon flavour. Thank you, Isobel for trying it!
If you would want to leave a start review since you liked it so much, I would appreciate it! I thought your Favorite Granola recipe would always be my favorite, but I have to say, this one has it beat! The orange flavor is just an incredible combination with the crunchy almonds and golden raisins! Love the sugar trick to infuse every bite with the orange flavor.
I appreciate the review! I made the granola with my daughter and it is fabulous! Thank you for another great recipe. My daughters loved tasting the citrus sugar bowl. It was very fragrant and easy to make. Also, it was important not to bake too long as that could lead to a loss of the citrus aroma as it could easily burn. It really clumps when you bake it and then let it cool fully. Thanks for your comment and review! Your favorite creamy chia pudding is a favorite of mine as well.
So fresh and light. I make your recipe for cashew milk and use only 3 cups in the pudding so it is nice and creamy. A wonderful, vegan orange creamsicle. The orange flavor is strong and so refreshing on this grey winter day. What a delicious and easy- to- make granola! Our go to granola recipe since the day it was posted. I think this is my 5th time making it. It is the best granola, thank you!
I mail packages to my daughter. The infusion of orange is brilliant. I love how Kate gives you options to use what you have in your pantry I used both honey and maple syrup. Thanks Kate for another fantastic recipe! I altered this recipe a little bit but I absolutely LOVE it and put it in a bowl with banana slices and some organic unsweetened vanilla almond milk and it was the best.
Instead of the sugar, I used raw organic Glory Bee honey. It mixed in just fine! Then I used roasted salted whole almonds.
That toasty, orange goodness is wonderful. I love your recipes and your site!
