From my Instagram: Keto Blueberry Granola (low carb, sugarfree); first in a 3 part series of blueberry, strawberry and crunch berry

FIRST in the series:  Blueberry (because it's my favorite!) 


I ended up doing 3 cereals - all  of which are currently in glass Mason jars in the pantry ready for us to gobble them up with unsweetened vanilla almond milk! (And extra batches made and food vacuum sealed to refill the Mason jars when they get low.)

This is my favorite so I've made 2-3 batches more in the past week and vacuum sealed them in my food sealer.  

NOTE:  I did try to cheat and just put one small test batch into the food processor to pulse a few times instead of mixing it by hand.  Nope.  Don't do it.  It breaks it all up into too small of pieces and it doesn't bake as well or form nice granola like clusters.  Just cut the butter in by hand - no food processor.





Blueberry Granola Cereal

1/3 c sweetener blend (Erythritol, Allulose, Bocha, Stevia - whatever you like)
1/2 c sliced almonds, crumbled a little bit
1/2 c pecans, chopped
1/4 c almond flour
1/4 c scant Devotion Angel Food Flavor whey protein powder or vanilla Isopure Protein Powder
1/4 c egg white protein powder
1/4 c real butter
1 t blueberry emulsion
1/2 t cinnamon powder

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.  Stir the dry ingredients plus the emulsion together in a large bowl.  Cut in the butter in pieces until it starts to resemble crumbs. Spread on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or foil.  Bake 12 minutes or so, stir, flip a little bit to get the edges to the center and the inside to the outside.  Continue baking another 5-10 minutes until it's starting to turn golden.

Remove from the oven but leave it on the baking sheet.  Stir it just a little bit, then leave it to cool completely.  It crisps up as it cools.  When completely cooled and crisp, then you can package in an airtight jar or container.  

NOTE:  Play with your recipe to use what you have and what you like.  

  • The sweetener mixture (but having at least 1/3 erythritol is best for it to crisp nicely).  
  • The whey protein powders and egg white powders.  I'm stingy with my egg white protein powder because it's so expensive - almost always use a mixture of whey and egg white unless it's for something 'meringue' like.  
  • I also only use Devotion brand and Isopure brand whey protein powders because they have zero sugar and zero carbs - many whey protein powders have carbs and sugar grams.  CHECK YOURS for accurate counts.
  • I made a batch using a cinnamon bun Flex Flavor packet instead of cinnamon as I wanted to use up some of then as they are flavors I don't typically use.
  • I added a couple tablespoons of Flaxseed meal to the last two batches I made
  • Added chopped walnuts to one of the batches - which I love but then I was 'out' of walnuts and I have to buy more so the other two batches didn't have them.
