I am a granola girl at heart, so naturally coming up with low carb version was just a matter of time. Can I tell you I am happy to report that this low-carber has brought granola into her life?
The best thing about this recipe is how easy it is customize and make your own. Just swap out the 1/2 cup of pecans and use and of your favorite nuts or add sugar- free chocolate chips. Really the sky is the limit here.
I personally can’t wait till fresh cranberries start popping up at my grocery stores. I plan on making my own sugar free dried cranberries I will let you know how that goes.
