I used to make my own granola using coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, ground linseed, coconut oil and and an egg. It was delicious, and I used to have three tablespoons of it every morning with four slices of avocado (which I kept in the freezer).
400g coconut flakes
250g sunflower seeds
100g pumpkin seeds
Sweetener to taste (or not!)
100g ground linseeds
100g coconut oil
50g coconut flour
Whizz the last four ingredients in a mini food processor and massage it in with the other ingredients. Bake at a moderate temperature for half an hour, stirring every 8-10 minutes. Leave to cool, stirring every now and again.
Trouble was, I’d make a huge batch and then have several tubs of it sitting in the larder. Guess what I would reach for when I was tired/upset/angry/bored/lonely? I could eat a whole tub of that stuff! It would screw up my blood sugar and digestive system for days when eaten in binge-y quantities like that!
Now I’m further in to my keto journey than I was then I find I don’t get eaty* in this way any more. But I’m afraid I don’t risk making granola any more…!
My breakfast is these days, I’m afraid, scrambled eggs!
*eaty = hungry when not hungry
