Golden low carb granola
We know what you're thinking—there's nothing like homemade granola! It is absolutely delicious paired with creamy, full-fat Greek yogurt or coconut cream for a low carb breakfast... or by itself, it's grab-and-go for a filling snack later. Eat up, and you're golden!

Making low carb simple
- Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Chop the nuts coarsely in a food processor or with a sharp knife. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
- Spread out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes. Be sure to set a timer. Nuts and seeds are heat sensitive and should not get burned.
- Remove from the oven and stir the mixture, then return to the oven for about 20 minutes more. Check again. When the granola feels almost dry, turn off the heat and let the granola cool in the residual heat of the cooling oven.
- Serve the granola with full-fat Greek yogurt with a tiny bit of vanilla powder and maybe some additional heavy cream. The granola is very nutritious and filling. A third to half a cup (1 dl) will go a long way.
I'm not sure exactly, but if storing in an airtight container, I would think it would keep for at least a week or so.
Thank you for your feedback! We will pass it along to our recipe team.
The alternative is to simply do what I gather the Americans do as standard - and get some measuring cups. Most American recipes measure everything by volume, and it works just the same as doing it by weight - so long as you do use proper measures - a tablespoon measure is accurate, providing you use an actual tablespoon measure and not just a 'tablespoon'. You also need to be aware that a cup (my cup measure says it is 125ml) of whole hazelnuts would weigh less than a cup of ground hazelnuts - because you can't get so many whole ones into the measure (as explained above), so unlike with weight measures you can't just swap out things like that. And you cannot compare the weights and the volumes without weighing each ingredient.
The slight complication is that European cup measures are slightly different from American ones. This does not matter if you stick to one or the other (in the same way you can't mix metric and imperial in the same recipe without doing a lot of math) but it will clearly affect the calorie count slightly - so if you are using an American recipe, you may want to get some American cup measures.
I was worried about using the turmeric the taste is very very subtle adds a nice colour it is golden.
Lovely so pleased with myself.

Also would like the serving carb count just for the granola (as any added yoghurt will always vary whereas the recipe and quanties of the granola ingredients- nuts etc is specific). I have mine with berries and almond milk anyway..
Thank you. I shared your feedback with our recipe team.
A lot of you are saying how small a serving is but its very filling! I love adding this to my greek yogurt as a treat. I wouldnt have as a main mean but this is perfect for someone that isnt used to eating in the mornings. I am one of them. Also having this for lunch has made my lunch break exciting again.
A good recipe and tastes GOLDEN.. Literally :P
The recipe shows a cook time of at least 40 minutes, two sets of 20 minutes. It is ok if you have to go a little beyond the 40 minutes as well. I am glad you enjoyed the flavor!
So glad you enjoyed it!
We have not tested this recipe without the almond flour, but it should still work well.
Hi, Grace! It's included in Step 1 when it states "Mix all ingredients in a bowl." Hope this helps!
Thanks so much, Don!
