An easy keto granola recipe and the best low-carb crunchy cereal alternative to rolled oats on your keto diet. Bonus, this keto nut granola is also sugar-free, grain-free, and vegan, made without eggs!
It’s pretty easy to make homemade keto granola at home and a great way to enjoy crunchy breakfast cereals without the carbs.
The key to making keto granola crunchy breakfast cereals is to use a combo of nuts and seeds and no eggs! While many granola keto-friendly recipes recommend egg whites as a binder to form clusters, I believe it’s unnecessary.
Combine wet to dry ingredients. Then, lay the granola onto a baking tray covered with parchment paper and bake in preheated 150C (300F) oven until roasted.
Of course, this keto granola recipe is perfect for you and anyone looking for a healthy grain-free, sugar-free granola.
This keto granola is low in carbs, sugar-free to keep your blood sugar level stable for a long time.

It’s also high in plant-based protein, heart-healthy fat – monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, and Omega-3.
Finally, nuts are also very fulfilling and high in fiber to keep you full for long.
The only important point to keep this keto-friendly granola healthy is to roast the nuts at a maximum of 300F (150C) to keep the nuts’ nutritional properties intact.
Obviously, you can make this recipe without the keto-friendly sweetener, but it won’t form granola clusters.
So to make the best grain-free granola keto recipe add some sugar-free maple syrup into this recipe. It will cluster the nuts and seeds together, and the crunch will be even better.
It also makes it easier to snack on as it forms clusters that you can grab by hand or sprinkle on top of low-carb yogurt.
First, keep it natural. Stay away from artificial sweeteners or maltitol.
Next, focus on sugar-free maple-flavored syrup. In fact, sugar-free syrup creates clusters in granola resulting in the best low-carb granola texture similar to store-bought granola.
Finally, if you can’t find a liquid sweetener, use keto crystal sweeteners like erythritol, allulose, or xylitol. Note that these don’t melt as well as liquid sweeteners, and they won’t form clusters in your granola.
It should be noted that this cereal mix must fully cool down before being transferred in a glass parfait jar. Indeed, these jars are the best way to avoid air coming in the mix, keeping your low-carb cereals intact for up to a month. Also, make sure to store this recipe at room temperature in the pantry. The fridge will soften your granola. Also, don’t freeze your granola!
This is a versatile recipe. I found this recipe amazing to fix my sugar craving anytime in the day without eating many carbs. I love to use it for breakfast as a snack or dessert in combination with dairy-free milk like almond milk.
So if you still wonder if you can eat granola on keto, you have got the answer! Yes, you can, but make your own from nuts and seeds!
