Low Carb Granola. About the second or third day we started eating this Granola with Yogurt and blueberries my husband turned to me and said “I think I could eat this every day for the rest of my life”…and so we have…almost every day. We do have a new Low Carb Warm Paleo Cereal now too.
As a mindfulness practice I hand-break my walnuts and pecans. They are more evenly sized pieces which mean fewer fines and it only takes about 20 minutes.

- You can add desiccated coconut, sugar free dried cranberries, blueberries or anything else your little heart desires and this would change the nutritionals so beware-dried fruits have had their sugars concentrated so you need to add only a few. Example: ¼ C fresh blueberries is about 4g net carbs and ¼ C dried blueberries is about 29g net carbs. Big Difference. If you do decide to add any dried fruits cut them in little pieces-the smaller the pieces, the larger the surface area and this equals more flavor.
- Mix seeds or nuts you like. Go crazy.
