I’ve been cutting carbs for a while and found this low carb granola recipe in a book at the library. It’s delicious so I thought I’d share.
Roast the brazil nuts, the pumpkin and sesame seeds and coconut flakes in a hot pan for a few minutes. Make sure you stir all the time so it doesn’t burn. Transfer to a plate.
Wipe the pan with a paper towel. Heat up the coconut fat and add the nut mixture together with the almond flour. Add the cinnamon and salt. Stir.
Add the honey or the Stevia (I use honey) and fry at medium heat for a few minutes.
Transfer to a plate to cool. Keep the granola in an air tight jar.
This sounds really interesting, I’m going to try it, though I abhor brazil nuts… maybe almonds or cashews? I’m going to give it a go. How do you eat it — with milk? Mixed into yogurt? Thanks for sharing! (It’s interesting, and quite a change, to see a recipe!)
If you want to keep it low carb you should stick to Brazil nuts or maybe walnuts (but they tend to be a bit bitter). Almonds and cashews have more carbs unfortunately.
That looks yummy! It even looks like “real” granola. Happy weekend!
Mmmh, looks yummy, but I prefer “Bircher Müsli” a la Liebesbotschaft. 🙂
Whoa! I bought ingredients for granola today. What the heck is in the air?
Thanks! I love granola and want to cut carb too.
Thanks, souns good! What is “almond Flour”, the same as ground almonds?
How long can you keep it in a jar?
I don’t do low carb very strictly, but this looks like a delicious addition to my other cereals.
Oh, Benita, thanks a bunch for the measurement conversions. 🙂
The flour is not as coarse as ground almonds but I’m sure you can use that!
Sorry, forgot you had two questions. I tend to eat it up fairly quickly but it lasts at least a couple of weeks if the jar’s air tight.
I’m also not super strict:)
Very funny as I had my bowl in hand of yogurt and granola when I opened your blog. Mine is not as low carb . . . . but yummy!
Have a good weekend!!
I remember you saying you make your own granola in previous posts, and always wanted to try. This low carb version is right up my low carb alley! Thank you for sharing the recipe!
Wondering what the calorie count might be ?
Looks delicous, can’t wait to try. 🙂
hum…. course it’s delicious! Brazil nuts rocks! (oops…)
I prefer chopped almond intead of flour, but I’m sure it’´s realy very good.
And a lot of fibers and good oil. Try no sugar, no honey, no nothing for sweet but some Sun-made seedless risins.

What´s Brazil nut´s in Swedish?
Thanks for this recipe! I have to eat strictly low-carb (LGIHF) because of my insulin-resistance/carb intolerance and I will add this to my collection. I actually make pancakes with a similar recipe – keep everything on your list — just change to 1 cup of coconut flakes and 1 cup of almond flour and add 6 eggs, a teaspoon of baking soda and one of baking powder. Fry them up in butter or coconut oil. Delicious topped with blueberries! Oh, and if you hate Brazil nuts, you can stay LC and use macadamia nuts.

No idea, when you heat low carb you don’t count calories.
Paranöt! Finns bra påsar på hemköp. En påse är precis lagom till receptet.
Oh, will have to try that!
This looks good and I like that you can do it in a frying pan. I already make your regular granola which my husband and I love, so this one will definitely be tried and probably added to the rotation. Happy Weekend!
Do you eat this as a snack of as a cereal or both???
I usually have it on sour milk as lunch at work or sometimes as breakfast on the weekend.
Benita, jag ser att du har MacKeeper annons i din högerspalt. ta bort den om du kan för det är ett virus som raderar Safari långsamt och sen krävs du på att betala om jag förstått rätt. Klicka inte på den!
Oj, den måste komma via Google Ads, ska kolla upp och försöka blockera. Tack!
Jag har sett den på olika sidor ett tag och undrat om man skulle prova den och nu när jag såg den på din sida googlade jag och kom till flera länkar och forum och trådar som varnade för den. Du har definitivt fått den via Google ads. Trodde de var OK men man får tydligen vara om sig och kring sig när det gäller det 🙂 Jag klickade inte på den på din sida utan skrev bara in det i google sökfältet. Lycka till!
Hej, finally bought all ingredients yesterday eve, followed the recipe and ejoyed the full crunch this morning – even my boyfriend liked it. Tack så mycket!
