How to make keto sugar-free granola
Making your own granola couldn't be any easier. You'll simply need a good mix of nuts and seeds, two wet ingredients and a natural sweetener.
You'll then pop your dry ingredients into a bowl and mix together before melting your wet ingredients on the stove - gently. Once melted, you'll then pour the wet mixture over your granola mix and stir well.
After that, you'll pour your mix onto a baking tray, pop it in the oven and bake for 20 minutes before removing, tossing and popping it back in for a final 5 minutes with a slightly higher cooking temperature.
Once your granola mix is golden, you'll need to remove it from the oven to cool completely.
How to get crunchy granola
Now, this is the important bit. Once you've removed your granola from the oven, you'll need to let it cool completely. Doing so allows the mixture to crispen up. I also find tossing the mixture around helps. Once cool and crispy, you'll then need to store the mixture in an air-tight container for freshness.
The coconut oil is the main ingredient responsible for that much loved 'crunch' so try not to it out.

A delicious, crunchy keto nut and seed mix. Gluten, dairy and refined sugar-free! Perfect on top of yoghurt or as a portion on its own served with fresh berries and milk.

Add the cinnamon and sea salt and stir once more.
Line a large baking tray with parchment paper and pour the granola mix onto the tray. Spread out evenly. Pop in the middle of the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove, toss and pop back in the oven for a further 5 minutes - increasing the heat to 170c.
