Some of the ingredients in this recipe are:

One of the reasons why this granola is able to stay low in net carbs is the use of nuts and seeds.  Both of these ingredients not only provide protein and healthy fats, but also fiber.  Fiber is extremely important on any diet, especially on a ketogenic diet. It helps keep bowels moving properly through the digestive process, helps control blood pressure, and can even aid in weight loss and weight management.

Why is fiber important?

#1 Digestion- foods rich in fiber will increase the size and weight of stools, making them easier to pass.  Fiber also absorbs water in loose stools so it can be helpful for those suffering from diarrhea and symptoms of IBS.  It also helps feed good bugs located in the gut, which helps diversify the microbiome and lower inflammation that has been linked to obesity and chronic health problems.

#2 Heart Health- soluble fiber can help lower the risk of heart disease because of its ability to soak up extra “bad” cholesterol and shuttle it out before it clogs up the arteries.  This will help reduce blood pressure and inflammation in the body.

#3 Weight Loss- since fiber adds bulk to foods, it can help people feel more satiated and full.  This helps reduce the amount of overall food that a person eats. It is also beneficial for those who have issues with insulin regulation, because soluble fiber will help slow the rate that carbohydrates are broken down and absorbed in the body.

In addition to the fiber, healthy fats, and fiber in this granola, it is also a wonderful thing to make for batch cooking and meal prep.  Once the nuts and seeds are broken down in a food processor, it’s just as simple as combining all of the other ingredients together and baking it off.  This granola can be used to top desserts, pancakes, waffles, ice cream, yogurt, smoothies, or any other meal that needs an extra punch of flavor and crunch.

  1. What is a “keto friendly sweetener.” I looked up Erythritol which says it has “low glycemic impact” . I do not know what that knows. Could you be more specific as to what constitutes a keto friendly sweetener.

  2. do the cocoa nibs add anything besides flavor? I am allergic and wondering if I need to substitute something or can just leave it out….1

  3. 3 Tbsp of any keto-friendly sweetener (sugar alcohols, mostly) is A LOT. I added 1 tsp of stevia and that was almost too much. Otherwise, love this recipe! Perfect for delicious grass-fed yogurt topping.

  4. The recipe makes 3 cups but doesn’t say what quantity is a serving — ie, is it half a cup for the 351 calories? Thanks.
