Low Carb Chocolate Orange Granola Cereal

5 ratings

This Keto granola is packed with crunch, a hint of zesty orange and a sprinkling of chocolate. Our quick and easy granola is simple to prepare before being oven baked until toasted and golden. This Keto granola is a great make-ahead option, perfect for batch prepping your weekly breakfasts. Delicious served with a splash of ice-cold plant milk and a cup of Keto coffee to kickstart your day.

Is Granola Keto?

Granola is very often prepared with grains such as oats, making it a no-go for low carb diets. However, it is incredibly easy to create a Keto compliant granola using a base of nuts and seeds. We have used a combination of pecans, almonds, walnuts and pumpkin seeds to create our crunchy granola base. The nuts and seeds are coated in coconut oil, low carb sweetener, a hint of warming ginger and zesty orange before being toasted in the oven. Once cooled, the granola is tossed with sweet dried cranberries and dark chocolate chips for added flavor and texture.

Serving Suggestions

We love our Keto granola served with ice-cold plant milk. Our favorite is almond milk, however you can use any plant-based Keto-friendly milk you desire - just be sure to factor this into your macros. This deliciously crunchy breakfast is not only a great low carb cereal alternative but also works perfectly as a trail mix for snacking. Ideal stored in individual snacking pots for breakfast or treats when you are on the go.

Recipe Steps

steps 5

55 min

  • Step 1

    Roughly chop the pecans, walnuts and almonds. Add the chopped nuts to a mixing bowl along with the pumpkin seeds. Stir together well to combine, mixing the nuts and seeds.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Melt the coconut oil. Add the melted coconut oil to the bowl with the nuts and seeds. Add the ground ginger, orange extract and erythritol. Stir everything together well to combine, coating the nuts and seeds in the flavorings. You may substitute the erythritol for your preference in low carb sweetener if desired, just be sure to adjust your macros to reflect any changes.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and line a shallow oven tray with baking paper. Tip the prepared granola mixture out onto the lined oven tray. Spread the granola mixture evenly across the tray in a single layer; this will ensure an even bake of the granola.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Transfer the tray to the oven. Bake the granola for 30-35 minutes, turning halfway through. After this time, the granola should be toasted and lightly golden all over. It is best to keep an eye on the granola whilst cooking to ensure it does not burn, as this will result in a bitter-tasting cereal.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Remove the cooked granola from the oven and set aside to cool completely. Once cooled, break any large clusters of granola up into smaller, bite-sized chunks. Add the cooled granola to a large bowl. Add the dried cranberries and chocolate chips. It is crucial the granola is cooled before adding the chocolate otherwise it will melt. Store the granola in an airtight container until ready to serve.
