Low Carb Granola

Finished Yogurt What I Eat 3About 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.

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 min.

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

  5. Bake at 275 degrees for 30 minutes. Turn down oven to 260 degrees.

  7. Return to oven and bake 30 minutes longer.

  9. Return to oven, bake another 30 minutes, turn off oven, and then let cool in oven.

Notes
  1. 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.
  2. Mix seeds or nuts you like. Go crazy.
