Granola 3 Ways: Healthy Low Carb, Savory & Traditional Recipes! – Mind Over Munch

Granola 3 Ways: Healthy Low Carb, Savory & Traditional Recipes! – Mind Over Munch

August 16, 2019 98 By William Morgan


Hey there Munchies!
Welcome if you’re new, I’m Alyssia.
Today I’ve got some simple and tasty recipes
to share with you:
homemade GRANOLAS.
Whether granola is a part of your healthy
breakfast,
or you just love having a crunchy snack around,
these healthy granola recipes are so tasty
and SO easy to make.
I’ve got 3 different granola recipes for
different tastes and lifestyles—
a traditional sweet granola, a savory granola,
and even a low carb granola!
First I’m sharing a traditional homemade
granola
where you’re in control of that added sugar.
I combine rolled oats, pecans, almonds, pumpkin
seeds, sunflower seeds,
golden raisins, cranberries, maple syrup or
honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract,
cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
Mix it up,
and then transfer to a pan lined with parchment.
Bake in the oven.
You can stir it halfway through,
but if you like larger pieces in your granola,
just let it be.
Allow to cool completely before breaking it
up and enjoying!
I love serving this one with yogurt that’s
slightly sweetened with maple syrup
and cinnamon!
It’s also great as a snack as is.
If you want more info on this cool storing
hack with the mason jar and applesauce container,
check out my crazy yogurts episode!
I’ll link it below.
This granola is crunchy, sweet and so satisfying
as a breakfast or snack!
This is just one of the healthy breakfast
recipes in my new Vegetarian Meal Prep eBook,
which is full of meal-preppable recipes for
lunch, dinner, and snacks, too!
For all of these recipes, you can really use
any nuts and seeds you prefer.
They all have different health benefits AND
will keep your granola interesting!
So feel free to get creative and switch up
the ingredients in your own homemade granola.

Next up I’ve got a SAVORY granola—and
it’s oil free!
I whisk together yellow mustard, apple cider
vinegar, tahini, maple syrup,
sriracha, garlic powder, onion powder, fresh
thyme, dried oregano,
cinnamon and salt and pep.
Then I add in the dry ingredients—oats,
cooked quinoa, chopped almonds,
chopped cashews, sesame seeds and pumpkin
seeds.
Toss to coat,
and transfer to a pan lined with parchment.
Bake in the oven, and I do recommend stirring
this one to keep it from burning.
Again, cool completely before breaking it
up.
This one is great as a snack, but it’s also
fun to make a savory parfait with Greek yogurt!
You can’t beat salty-sweet snacks!
Can I get a thumbs up?
The last one I’ve got for you is actually
a LOW carb granola, which is pretty cool!
If you’re curious about how a low carb lifestyle
works,
I do have a Keto 101 video that breaks down
the basics of low carb and ketogenic diets.
I mix together walnuts, pecans, macadamia
nuts, sliced almonds, pumpkin seeds,
sunflower seeds, coconut shreds, ground flax,
unsweetened cranberries,
erythritol or sweetener of choice, fiber syrup—
which is optional but I like it for caramelization—
coconut oil, cinnamon and salt.
Transfer to a pan lined with parchment and
bake.
Break it up once it’s cooled and enjoy!
SO delicious! If you’re on a low carb lifestyle
and missing cereal,
breaking this granola up and enjoying with
some almond milk could do the trick!
This recipe is from my new Low Carb Meal Prep

are ALL low carb!
