Healthy Grain Free Granola – Keto & Vegan

low carb grain free granola

This healthy grain-free granola is delicious, light and so easy to make. It’s made with a monk fruit maple-flavored syrup, seeds, nuts, and cinnamon. Furthermore, this granola is great for an easy breakfast, snack, or to top your desserts.

I definitely love making this healthy grain-free granola and eating a few clusters when I’m craving something sweet. Even though I love oatmeal, I find the granola with oats make my stomach bloat. Also, store-bought granola is often prepared with refined sugar and filler ingredients.

This Granola is:

  • Keto – it was made with a maple syrup flavored monk fruit blend. Although you can use regular maple syrup.
  • Light –  easy to digest.
  • Vegan and Paleo friendly.
  • Nutritious – is packed with plant-based protein, antioxidants and other vitamins.
  • Easy to make – the recipe calls for simple ingredients and is ready in less than 30 minutes.
  • Rich, flavorful and great for a snack or as a topping.
  • You can make delicious clusters as well.

Also, you can add more nuts or seeds to this recipe. Without a doubt, if you want a budget friendly granola, feel free to only use one kind of nuts or replace it with your favorite. Hence I find affordable and good quality seeds and nuts at Trader Joe’s. Certainly, If you make a big batch of this grain free granola, you can eat it as a cereal with your favorite milk.

How to make this granola:

  • Firstly, preheat your oven to 300 degrees and line up a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Then, melt your coconut oil, mix it with monk fruit maple syrup and vanilla. Then let it sit for a few minutes until just warm not hot.
  • In a large bowl, combine seeds, nuts, pinch of salt and cinnamon using a silicon spatula.
  • Cover dry ingredients with syrup mixture evenly.
  • Spread over prepared tray and bake for about 18 to 20 minutes or until coconut chips are golden brown but be careful not to burn.
  • Stir granola between baking time.
  • Lastly, let it cool completely, store it in an air tight container for about 3-4 days.
