Low Carb Granola Cereal

 I  actually had no intentions of making a Low Carb Granola Cereal until my grandma fell and hurt her neck back in March.  She was telling me about some granola she saw on TV and how she thought it looked delicious.  With that bit of info I set to work to make her some granola!

 I have since refined my recipe, removing the maple syrup and replacing it with my BFF Swerve for you lovely readers and for my low carb sweet tooth!

 

 

As you can see, I enjoyed this sweet and salty low carb granola cereal with some vanilla ice cream.  It’s not just any vanilla ice cream, though.  I used Halo Top, another one of my BFFs.  My favorite flavors are vanilla, birthday cake, chocolate, and mint chip.

Oh my, oh my, it was so good!  I try not to eat Halo Top too often because it is still a little higher in carbs than I like to eat in one sitting (the whole pint if you must know, don’t judge), but I think it is perfectly fine as an occasional treat and much better than the stuff filled with sugar!

For this low carb granola cereal I used almonds, pecans, walnuts, sesame seeds, and chia seeds.  You could make it your own, though, and use sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds.  You could even add some low carb Lily’s chocolate chips!

 

Salty sweet and cinnamony low carb granola is the perfect grab and go snack or topping for low carb ice cream!

Recipe Notes
  • I like to store this low carb cereal in an air tight container on the counter.  It usually lasts a couple of weeks.  You could also keep it in the refrigerator. 
  • I serve this with unsweetened almond milk because it is a great low carb milk alternative.  You could also use coconut milk
  • You could also use this to top unsweetened greek yogurt.  That sounds amazing!
