What is keto granola
If you’re familiar with traditional granola, you know that rolled oats are the main ingredient. It also includes a sweetener, like honey or brown sugar.
Unfortunately, these ingredients aren’t very keto friendly.
So to make this low carb granola, we use nuts, seeds, and a delicious keto-friendly honey flavored syrup instead!
I love the sweet, candy-like coating we get from baking the honey into the granola. It isn’t overly sweet, it’s just the right balance. I get the same results with my keto ham glaze.
The combination of the nuts, seeds, and baked honey coating gives each bite that satisfying crunch we want from granola.
It has a rich, honey nut taste that goes well in almond milk or yogurt. But you can also enjoy it all by itself!
How to make low carb granola
This recipe could not be easier. Simply combine the ingredients and bake!
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Combine all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Toss until everything is well-coated.
- Spread out the mixture on greased or lined baking sheet in an even, single layer.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly brown and toasted.
- Remove from the oven and cool to room temperature.
Once the granola has cooled, simply break it up into pieces to serve. Any extra can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Is honey keto
We all know that we should avoid sugar when following a low carb diet. But what about eating honey on keto?
Honey does contain antioxidants and nutrients you won’t find in sugar. However, one tablespoon contains 17 grams of net carbs. This makes it a poor choice for anyone counting carbs.
So instead, I use Pyure Sugar-Free Harmless Hunny!
This syrup tastes just like real honey and has the perfect, thick texture we need to bind the granola. And there are only 4 net carbs per tablespoon.
Are pumpkin seeds keto
The bulk of this keto granola recipe is made up of nuts and seeds.
So you may be wondering if ingredients like pumpkin seeds, also known as pepitas, are keto friendly.
This recipe calls for a ½ cup of pumpkin seeds, which will have 17 grams of total carbs. There are also 12 grams of fiber, leaving us with 5 net carbs.
There are 10 servings in this recipe, so that’s only 0.5 net carbs per serving from the pumpkin seeds!
So are sunflower seeds keto as well? The ¼ cup in the recipe will have 7 grams of total carbs and 3 grams of fiber for 4 net carbs in the whole recipe.
Both pumpkin and sunflower seeds are perfect ingredients for your low carb granola!
This low carb granola can be customized based on your tastes or by what you have on hand.
Feel free to play around with the quantities of nuts and seeds used. Almonds, cashews, or macadamia nuts could all be great in this granola!
And of course, the syrup is a fun way to play around with the taste.
This recipe could be considered a honey nut flavor, but I also think a maple walnut would be delicious. Simply use Pyure Organic Maple Syrup Alternative in place of the honey.

I really appreciate the detailed nutritional info on all your recipes. I want to get some items baked to mail to an Uncle and his sodium is restricted also. Most sites do not post the sodium numbers . Thank you!
You're welcome. My father also has to watch his sodium intake so I know that's an important number.
so good to see you on video. Is this your first video? were you nervous. Don't be. We love you and all your recipes. I will try this my husband was just asking for keto cereal. TY
Being on camera has been a struggle but I've gotten a lot more confident so my video appearances have been improving. I was really awful when I first started in 2018 so I stopped doing them. However I've picked back up this year and this video was one of the first I did upon my return.
This turned out so good, perfect for snacking on while I work!
I love this keto granola! It is a hearty and filling breakfast or snack. I like munching on it throughout the day!
Any recommendations for using nuts other than walnuts & pecans? I am allergic to both but can do almonds & cashews - what nuts would you recommend as substitutions, if any? I am not sure what will stand up in the granola but I love the idea of Keto granola. Thank you!
You could add in more seeds or add in some dried flaked coconut. Extra almond work too. I've never tried cashews so I'm not sure how those would work out.
Thanks for your fast reply! Cocnut! Yes, I should have thought of that! Great idea - will take your suggestions and see how it goes! Thank you!
Can this be eaten with almond milk or watered down cream as cereal?
I like to break it into smaller pieces to serve with almond milk as a cereal.
