Keto Protein Granola

November 8, 2017

This recipe is tasty and packed full of all the good things. It’s a very easy recipe to make and pretty much everything can be swapped out for something else.

My granola is always different as I usually use whatever is the cupboard and in this case it was a bit of everything! For instance, if you love hazelnuts, then ditch all the other nuts I suggest below and go ape on the hazelnuts – nobody is stopping you!

You can take out the protein powder if you don’t want the extra boost, but it will be bitter. I add it for both the sweetness and protein. Double win.

If you are going keto try stick to a protein powder that is obviously low in carbs like Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey.

Ingredients

  • 100g coconut oil – melted

  • 125g butter – melted

  • 100g protein powder

  • 100g almond flakes

  • 50g cocoa nibs

  • 50g cocoa powder

  • 60g pecans

  • 50g almonds

  • 100g sunflower seeds

  • 50g milled linseed – I used the Linwood one with goji berries, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds blended in

  • 50g coconut flakes

  • 100g shredded coconut

Directions

  • Place all the dry ingredients into a bowl
  • Melt the butter and coconut oil and pour over the dry ingredients
  • Mix until everything is coated in one delicious-chocolate-oily mess
  • Place in a large oven tray, spread out, and bake at 180° for 25-30 mins. The longer you bake it the crunchier it will be, but don’t burn it!
  • Remove from the oven, allow to cool and store in an airtight container
  • Enjoy!
