Savory Granola

This recipe is great. I did modify quantities, using 10 cups of rolled oats to match the size of the packaging , omitted the almonds, added unsweetened coconut, and increased the pecans and wal It's not so heavy and greasy like other granola. I also stirred in miniture chocolate chips as soon as I pulled it out of the oven and st This is my first try at homemade granola. This recipe is easy and -- from the little tastes I took along the way -- yummy.

There is a fine line between "toasted" and burnt. The organic, nutty, rustic flavor is perfect. I love this recipe. It's the first time I've made granola and I was very pleased. I make this all the time because it magically vanishes in our house!! The proportions work very well, and of course, substitutions are easily made.

I use whatever nuts we have Several of my children who typically don't care for granola, loved it. I've tried many granola recipes and this tops them all. Added to shopping list.

Go to shopping list. It also serves as a topping for various pastries , desserts or ice cream. Granola is carried by people who are hiking , camping , or backpacking because it is nutritious, lightweight, high in calories, and easy to store properties that make it similar to trail mix and muesli. As a snack, it is often combined with honey or corn syrup and condensed into a bar form that makes it easy to carry for packed lunches , hiking, or other outdoor activities.

The names Granula and Granola were registered trademarks in the late 19th century United States for foods consisting of whole grain products crumbled and then baked until crisp, in contrast to the, at that time about , contemporary invention, muesli , which is traditionally neither baked nor sweetened.

The name is now a trademark only in Australia and New Zealand , but is still more commonly referred to as muesli there. Granula was invented in Dansville, New York, by Dr. James Caleb Jackson at the Jackson Sanitarium in Granula was composed of Graham flour and was similar to an oversized form of Grape-Nuts. A similar cereal was developed by John Harvey Kellogg.

It too was initially known as Granula, but the name was changed to Granola to avoid legal problems with Jackson. The food and name were revived in the s, and fruits and nuts were added to it to make it a health food that was popular with the health and nature-oriented hippie movement.

At the time, several people claim to have revived or re-invented granola. The company was founded in in Holly, Michigan by the Hurlinger family with the main purpose of producing a concentrated paste of brewers yeast and soy sauce known as "Sovex". Earlier in , it had been bought by John Goodbrad and moved to Collegedale, Tennessee.

Louis, Missouri , introduced Heartland Natural Cereal, the first major commercial granola. This recipe looks Devine. Hi, I have been a lurker on your site for a few months now after searching for low carb recipe substitutes.

I have PCOS and thyroid problems, and am a true sugar addict in every sense of the word. Obviously this is not a good combo…BUT you are one of the people online that have helped me tremendously with managing my health issues and food. Right now in my cupboard I currently have the coconut flour, almond flour, xanthan gum, flax seed meal, and wheat gluten.

I just bought more coconut flour two days ago and it was sold out in the first 3 stores I went to! I appreciate all the effort you put into what you do! Finally made this today and it is yummy! I should have stayed in the kitchen while I secretly snacked because I ended up sharing this with my 5 year old and she can chow down!! Thank you, Carolyn, and keep up the great work! What would you recommend as a substitute for the flax? Trying to limit my consumption a little bit.

Would chia meal have the same effect? Right now my fav is their steel cut oats, Irish Oatmeal. I only have swerve, do I just add a little more of that? For the vanilla whey powder, can I sub it for unflavored whey powder and maybe a tsp of vanilla extract?

So excited to try this out!! Your mom sounds like a very inspiring person. Thank you for all you do. I have been wheat-grain free for only a month but your recipes have been incredibly helpful. You are really making a difference for so many. This muesli is delicious and I love that it is low in carbs but when I entered it in to my food diary it came up as calories per serve.

I hope I have done it wrong. Has anyone got a different result? I put these ingredients into MyFitnessPal Recipe Builder and the nutritional data for carbs was much higher than yours.

That is likely because My Fitness Pal is calculating the carbs from the erythritol. Thanks for letting me know. I removed that and it calculated to 12g carbs…closer to your 9. Probably a matter of brands used. I will be trying this today. Are all the nuts and seeds raw before adding? Can this be made into bars? Also do u think that I can use mixed nuts for another version of this? Can I make this with maple syrup or honey instead of the artificial sweeteners, if so what would be the measurements?

But I am sure it would work with them. I am interested in trying this. I have a few questions though. Can I grind my own flax seed meal from flax seeds? Would I use the same amount? Is there a substitute for the whey protein powder? I look forward to your input. Yes, you can use your own flax in the same amount. You can skip the whey protein if you like. The sweet drops will be fine, as will the powdered Swerve. I see that this recipe makes 10 servings, but what is the actual serving size?

Easier to measure out portions if I know the individual serving size. Today is the second time I have made this and it is easy to make and sooooooo delicious!! This granola is now a staple in my house.

My son stopped by, ate it up and took a jar home with him. Our cereal fix is now satisfied. We are firmly ketoed. Thank you for all you do Carolyn. You have saved me and my family from diabetes and heart disease to name a few. All I see is carbs for nutritional facts. I would love or to add it to my fitness pal.

I am having issues with my recipe card. I put the serving size in yesterday but it disappeared on me! Thank you SO much for this recipe! Granola has always been my weakness and the thing I miss the most after becoming keto. Also, I finally bought your cookbook at Costco! I love such healthy and nutrient-dense recipes! I just made a double batch of this.

It is SO delicious! I think I will be making this on a weekly basis!!!!!!!! This stuff is dangerous. Wondering if this is how its supposed to be, if not, would you recommend cooking a bit longer or think its related to the protein powder? No, it should absolutely crisp up as it sits. Made this and it was amazing and the whole house smelled like a dream! Quick question — how long does it keep? Have stored it in an air tight container so far and it really crisps up after cooling down!

Enough about Bob, lol, this granola is awesome! I made it yesterday, and just had my first bowl with some cream. I made this a few days ago. I threw in some pumpkin seeds that I had leftover. This is the best doing keto and was craving cereal this was a great fix with almond milk ,my husband and I are hooked on it.

I used unsweetened shredded coconut and vanilla whey powder. I know your recipe is written with butter, but do you think coconut oil or ghee would work?

I find it very annoying when someone basically wants to change the whole recipe and then asks the person who posted it if it will turn out ok. I think it would work well with either and I appreciate your concern about changing the recipe too much! Coconut oil will have more of a strong taste, just keep that in mind. Now I can have it again: Her representert ved Peanut butter Granola.
