Keto Carrot Cake Granola
There are so many reasons to love granola!!!!

1. Super easy to make
This is a fool proof recipe. Just stir the ingredients together, spread it on a baking pan and place in the oven. That’s it. You can also make large batches of this all at once. The granola stores nicely for two weeks.

2. Customize to your preferred taste
Now this recipe will probably surprise you. It’s a carrot cake granola made with no pecans or walnuts. Why???? I hate pecans and walnuts. So, I customized it to my taste preference which you can also do with this recipe. I use cashews and almonds but you can definitely substitute pecans or walnuts if you prefer. You can get completely creative with granola. Here are some keto approved ingredients you can try in your granola:
Nuts- pecans, macadamia, brazil, hazelnut, pine nuts, walnuts, peanuts, pistachios, almonds and cashews. Pecans, macadamia and Brazilian nuts contain the lowest carbs.
Seeds- flaxseed, chia seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds and sunflower seeds
Dried Fruit- unsweetened coconut flakes. I would not recommend these other dried fruits for this recipe but could be enjoyed sparingly in other granola recipes: raspberries, blackberries or strawberries

3. Very Versatile. We love eating granola for breakfast, a snack or topping.
Breakfast- In the morning enjoy a bowl of granola cereal. Pour unsweetened almond or cashew milk over a serving of the granola in a bowl. Your breakfast is ready.
Snack- eat the granola clusters as is. You can put a serving size portion in a sandwich bag for an on-the-go pick me up. If you prefer eating a granola bar as a snack you can easily cut the granola into bars instead of clusters.
Topping- top off your low carb yogurt, smoothie or ice cream

4. Make large clusters, bars or small pieces
I love large granola clusters! When I make my granola, I cut it into chunks. After 10 minutes in the oven, you can cut the granola into bars, chunks or small pieces.

5. Chewy or crunchy
Usually we fall into one of two categories with our granola preference….chewy or crunchy. I am definitely a fan of the chewy. Yep, large chewy granola clusters are my favorite. This recipe gives you the option of making your granola chewy or you can make it crunchier by just adding another 10 minutes of baking time.

Why do I use egg white in my granola recipe?
The protein in egg whites binds the ingredients together making chunky crunchy granola clusters.
