The breakfast of the average person consists of a piece of bread, some yogurt with granola or muesli. All these meals are generally not the best things to start your day with.
Both bread and granola from the supermarket are often packed with unhealthy carbohydrates and sugars.
Does this mean that you have to say goodbye to your favorite breakfast? Certainly not! In this article you will learn exactly how to make a low-carb granola so that you can still eat your delicious breakfast.
The granola that you can buy in most supermarkets like Walmart, Target and Aldi is generally unhealthy and certainly not low in carbohydrates.
Often it contains:
Yet they often know how to sell these products as healthy products. This is what they will write on the packaging:
"Without refined sugars", "Without preservatives" and "source of fiber".
But don't let them fool you. Honey may be a whole food and not a refined sugar, but your body can't tell the difference. Both are absorbed at lightning speed and case a significant blood sugar spike. Not very wise if you are diabetic or want to lose some weight.

What is the solution? You make your own healthy low-carb homemade granola.
You can add your own nuts and seeds you like. You can also use different types of sweeteners. This low-carb granola is not a keto recipe, but it is definitely healthy.

Low-Carb Granola with Nuts and Seeds (Sugar-Free Recipe)

- 140 gram almonds
- 120 gram hazelnuts
- 100 gram pecans
- 20 gram pumpkin seeds
- 45 gram sunflower seeds
- 80 gram erythritol powder
- 80 gram flaxseed meal
- 1 egg white
- 55 gram butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla-extract
- Preheat the oven to 160 degrees Celsius and cover a baking tray with parchment paper.
- Put the almonds and hazelnuts in the food processor and chop them briefly (the nuts should be a quarter of their original size).
- Then add the pecans and chop again for 3 to 5 seconds (be careful not to grind them too finely!).
- Add the pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, erythritol, and flaxseed meal and mix everything to a coarse texture.
- Add the butter, egg white and vanilla extract and mix together with the nuts and seeds.
- Place the granola mixture on the baking tray and spread it to a thickness of 0.5 to 1 cm. Bake the granola golden brown in 15 to 18 minutes.
