Banting Granola Recipe & WIN With Food Lovers Market

Sponsored!

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.

    Love the recipe thank you ! I find that most of the pre-made granola’s are too expensive and I’m not 100% sure that the ingredients will be fresh when opening it. We love granola over yoghurt although I too am not a huge fan of breakfast but am happy to snack on granola or eat breakfast at brunch

    The problem with most pre-made granolas is they contain added sugars, and. It’s which aren’t Banting-friendly.

    The problem with pre-made banting granola’s is that they are expensive and can often be filled with sugar. This one looks AMAZING and I cannot wait to try it.

    I will be trying this recipes out. i don’t buy this in the shop anymore. You don’t know what they put in there anymore, and all with the scientific names, to try and fool the consumers. Thank you for this recipe!

    The biggest problem is hidden sugars and other unhealthy ingredients that are put on the selves and marketed as “Banting friendly”. They’re often also quite pricey and difficult to find. I’d love to win the voucher so I can give your recipe a try. Homemade is always best, you know exactly what you’re putting in your mouth 🙂

    I don’t bant but I do make my own granola. Would you believe I make mine with the same ingredients. I just add oats.

    My favourite nuts include: cashews, almonds, pecan and pistachio!
    I love dried fruit as an healthy snack – its delicious combining dried fruit with nuts and muesli in a yoghurt! Even better throwing all these ingredients with chunks of fresh fruit into a blender for a good-to-go power smoothie!

    im nuts for NUTS! Pecan and Brazil are my fav, but I wont say not to almonds and cashews either.
