HOW TO MAKE KETO PEANUT BUTTER GRANOLA?
INGREDIENTS FOR HOMEMADE PEANUT BUTTER KETO GRANOLA
Almonds are one of the main ingredients in every proper keto kitchen. That’s the case with my kitchen too, and that’s why, they have to be included in this low carb granola recipe. I use whole almonds, however, you can use halves or sliced and blanched almonds if you have. Whole almonds are more budget friendly and totally fine to use!
Pecan nuts are fantastic in pies and I have few really delicious recipes using pecan nuts, published here on my website. Few of my favorites are keto pecan pie cheesecake or rich chocolate ganache tart with pecans and cranberries. Great one is recipe for keto raspberry chocolate pecan cake bars. It’s really yummy and easy to make.
Shredded coconut is also one great ingredient in keto cooking and baking. Just make sure to get unsweetened shredded coconut, because packed products might contain added sugar, fructose and glucose syrup and similar creative synonyms for added sugar.
SUPER FOOD FOR BEST LOW CARB GRANOLA
Chia seeds are really interesting ingredient, especially in this recipe. It’s not by accident called superfood. Chia is packed with proteins, vitamins and minerals and it’s great for your health. When combined and baked in this granola they get a special crunch and flavor and really add so much to elevate the flavor of this whole granola mix.
Erythritol is affordable low carb sweetener and I love using it. However, you can use another low carb sweetener that you like. It could be xylitol, stevia or another one that’s the best to your taste.
Vanilla whey protein is just delicious! Find one that is sweetened with stevia, erythritol or another low carb sweetener. Very often whey is sweetened with sugar, so you will need to read nutritional info and pay attention to ingredients to find one that it’s keto friendly.
Combination of unsweetened peanut butter, coconut oil and water microwaved until melted will give the moist and it will act as a glue for all these ingredients. But, what is even more important it will add to flavor so much! Definitely, you don’t have to microwave, you can also
PROCEDURE TO MAKE LOW CARB GRANOLA
It’s more than easy to make this granola. Literally, combine all these nuts, seeds, sweetener and whey together and grind in a food processor until just a little chunks of almonds left.
