10 Dec Grain-Free Paleo One Pan Granola, 3 Ways (Sugar-free & Nut-free)
I recently had a client who was allergic to gluten and nuts, plus she was a diabetic and wanted to stay away from any added sugars. When we were creating recipes together, I asked her what was the one food she most missed with her recently diagnosed food restrictions? “Yogurt with Granola,” she said. What I found was that granola was also something terribly missed by mom’s that wanted to send granola and yogurt to school but they could not due to nut-allergies in the school, and then my Keto clients… well they could not find granola to eat due to the gluten and sugars in most of them. So this sent me on a mission!
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.
