Banting Granola Recipe & WIN With Food Lovers Market


I won’t lie. I’m not a big fan of breakfast. I know the “experts” will say that it’s the most important meal of the day, but for me, it’s simply just not! I’m rarely hungry first thing in the morning and struggle to eat before work.

That’s why I’m such a huge fan of granola.

But Banting granola. Just lots of roasted nuts and coconut, sprinkled over some full fat plain yoghurt is enough to keep me going until lunch time.

My choice breakfast.

My choice breakfast.

The problem is, Banting granola is often difficult to find and it’s quite expensive. There are a lot of pre-made products on the market, masquerading as banting granola, but when you read your food labels, you’ll discover they often times contain oats or pecan nuts, neither of which is banting. Not to mention added sugar in varying forms and chocolate! I mean really, chocolate as a health food? I wish! So it’s a no go for me.

I’ve tried a number of homemade banting granola recipes and this is my favorite one. Of course, with Food Lover’s Market nut bar, you can get a HUGE selection of nuts and all the ingredients you’ll need to make this recipe. And it’s easy peezy you guys, it will take you less than half an hour to prepare it. It also stores well in an airtight container.
