Nutty Low-Carb Granola

With just 3 net carbs per serving, you get your crunchy breakfasts back with this diabetic-friendly cinnamon nut granola!

If you’re diabetic, nuts necessarily become one of your biggest allies.

Peanuts. Almonds. Cashews. Walnuts. Pecans. Even coconuts.

Nuts as snacks.

Nuts as milk.

Nuts as flour.

Nuts as butter.

Nuts as oil.

Apparently, you can make almost anything out of nuts!

This recipe allows even us Type 1 diabetics to have granola for breakfast or as a crunchy snack. It stars, you guessed it, nuts!

But, the co-star deserves equal credit. I add a lot of cinnamon to my batches. It smells so amazing while it’s cooking and reminds me of so many happy memories when I am snacking on it.

Granola is great with almond milk, low-carb greek yogurt, or just for on-the-go yummy snacks (hence why I make my chunks quite large!).

So, let’s get down to whipping up a batch.

Nutty Low-Carb Granola
I have been honing this recipe over many batches - each one better than the last. The beautiful part is that it's so versatile. Switch it up to your liking by using your favorite nuts, adding some nutmeg, baking longer for more crunch, or shorter for more chewiness. Make it sweet. Make it peanut-buttery. Make it salty. Make it your own.
