By using seeds instead of nuts, I am able to get the healthy omega 3 fats and fiber that I want with lower carbs and it allows me to be nut-sensitive. I choose to not use maple syrup or honey as I typically would to sweeten my granola to be mindful of those with blood-sugar balancing issues, parents who are keeping sugars lower at school for attention, and again for my Keto clients. After a few attempts, I found this recipe to be totally delightful. I sprinkled it onto my Instapot Homemade Yogurt and it was completely delicious. If you are not monitoring your sugars adding a few berries and a drizzle of honey, agave, or maple syrup onto the yogurt with the granola is super yummy and a great snack or treat. I hope you enjoy this recipe. As always I love hearing from you so feel free to leave a comment below.
