Nutty Granola (without carbs)

I love eating cereal for breakfast but I always feel a bit guilty since I’m trying to avoid carbs. That’s why I came up with the recipe for this lovely nutty granola! I enjoy eating it with a Greek yogurt and a bit of goji berries or some fresh fruit. You can also mix this super tasty granola with plain old oats and make a yummi mixture which can compete with store-bought cereal but without the added sugar.

Ingredients:

  • 100 g hazelnuts
  • 100 g almonds
  • 75 g cashews
  • 50 g pine nuts
  • 50 g macadamia nuts
  • 20 g flax seeds
  • 30 g coconut chips
  • 10 g coconut oil

Preheat your oven to 180 °C. Line a medium backing tray with a piece of parchment.

First roast the hazelnuts which will make it easier to remove the skin from them. Spread the hazelnuts on the tray in a single layer and roast them for about 15 minutes until they become golden brown and they start to peel. Mix them every few minutes so they don’t burn.

Place all other nuts and seeds (except coconut chips) into a bowl while the hazelnuts are roasting, melt the coconut oil and coat the nutty mixture with it.

Take another bowl and place a paper towel in it. Toss the roasted hazelnuts into the bowl when they are done and wrap them with the paper towel.

Distribute the mixture onto the tray (no need to replace the parchment), put it in the oven and repeat the same process as with hazelnuts – roast it for about 15 minutes while mixing it every now and then.

Meanwhile rub the hazelnuts with the paper towel and in between your hands so the skin will peel off. Watch out, they can still be very hot!

After the mixture is roasted, add the hazelnuts and coconut chips to it. Toss everything into a blender and pulse until the granola is lightly chopped.
