Almonds are packed with nutrients and minerals that are helpful for the body. An ounce of this nut already contains 3.5 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and a significant amount of other nutrients such as vitamin E, magnesium, and manganese. Almond also happens to be rich in antioxidants, making it an agent in the protection of cells against aging. 

Walnuts, on the other hand, is an excellent source of omega-3 fats that keeps the heart protected from risks. It is also quite good for your gut as it feeds the healthy bacteria in your stomach. Another benefit of walnuts is the reduction of cancer risks for the body because of its polyphenols substance.

Adding cashews to the recipe also helps in normalizing your sugar level and weight. Other important additions are chia seeds for healthy digestion, flaxseeds for body cleaning and immunity boosting, sunflower seeds for the nervous system.

I also tossed in some pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds powder for additional taste. You can prepare the meal within an hour. Easy peasy, right? You can consume the granola as your breakfast or as a snack.

You can even add this grain free granola to any baking recipe you have in mind. Experiment with other keto-friendly ingredients to suit your taste and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family!

Is granola allowed on keto diet?

Granola is typically high in carbs and not recommended for a keto diet because it contains oats, nuts, honey or sugar, and sometimes dried fruits, but low-carb, keto-friendly granola options like my recipe above made with nuts and seeds are ok for keto.

What cereal is keto-friendly?

Keto-friendly cereals are often made from low-carb ingredients like nuts, seeds, and coconut, and sweetened with sugar substitutes such as erythritol or stevia, avoiding grains and added sugars. You can check these keto cereal brands for more details.

How to store homemade keto-friendly granola

Store homemade keto-friendly granola in an airtight container in a cool, dry place to keep it fresh and crunchy; it can last for up to 2 weeks this way. For longer storage, you can refrigerate or freeze it.
