From My Instagram: Homemade Blueberry Granola (Can be made keto, sugarfree and low carb)


This weekend I posted on my Instagram that the homemade granola was replenished.  That might be why some of my readers are here, because they saw that one.  However, homemade granola is something I've posted a number of times in the past already - my favorites are blueberry granola and vanilla almond granola. 

Here is an image of one of the previous times I've posted this one...... for those of you who missed it or are new here.

There are SO MANY WAYS TO PLAY WITH THIS RECIPE!  I've noted some of mine below the recipe.

Blueberry Granola Cereal

1/3 c sweetener blend (Erythritol, Allulose, Bocha, - 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 Angel Food Flavor whey protein powder or Vanilla Isopure Protein Powder
1/4 c egg white protein powder (I use Jay Robb)
1/4 c real butter
1 t blueberry emulsion (I use LorAnn)
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 (Having at least 1/3 of your mixture be 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 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've added a couple tablespoons of Flaxseed meal to the last two batches I made.
  • Added chopped walnuts to some of the batches - which I love.
