From my Instagram: 2nd of 3! Keto Strawberry Granola Cereal - low carb and sugar free


I've made a couple different batches of this strawberry version - some after I bought strawberry extract (LorAnn Strawberry Bakery Emulsion).  I had to make due with what I had in the cupboard the first batch - which is was good - but the extract or emulsion is more affordable, and gives a better, cleaner? cereal taste.   But basically, whatever strawberry flavor you have on hand is good - play with your recipe!

I used a couple Flex Flavors packets - which I have had on hand forever but they were part of a pack of random flavors and there are some I've just never used.  This was a great way to 'use them up' as they've literally been in my cupboard for at least a year or two?

Strawberry Granola Cereal
2/3 chopped nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts - mixture of all or whatever you like)
1/3 c sweeteners (mix 2 or 3 for best flavor)
1/4 c almond flour
1/4 c egg white protein powder
1/4 c Devotion Angel Food Cake whey protein powder (you can use other brands of vanilla/unflavored)
1/4 c butter (half a stick)
1 1/2 t strawberry extract or emulsion or 3-4 packets of Flex Flavors
Combine the ingredients and cut in the butter (I use my fingers) until it forms crumbs.  Bake at 300 degrees on a baking sheet covered with foil or parchment for about 12 minutes, and then check it and stir a bit to bring the outside edges to the inside, and inside to outside.  Let it bake another 3-8 minutes until it just starts to turn golden.  Remove, stir and let it cool completely.  It will get crisp as it cools.  Break apart and either eat or put into a mason jar or vacuum food seal for later.
