Nutty Keto Granola


Step 1. Preheat the oven to 120°C

Step 2. Combine the almonds (approx. ½ cup), pecans (approx. ½ cup), sunflower seeds (approx. ¾ cup), pumpkin seeds (approx. ¼ cup) and chia (approx. ¼ cup) in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.

Step 3. In a heavy-based frying pan, lightly toast the sesame seeds (approx. 3 tb) over a medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes. Keep them moving so they don’t burn!

Step 4. Add the toasted sesame seeds, sweetener (approx. 2 ½ tb) and cinnamon to a food processor and pulse until powdered.

Step 5. Beat egg white with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, then fold through the nut mix.

Step 6. Pour the sesame-sweetener mix over the nuts and stir until evenly coated.

Step 7. Line a baking tray with paper and spread the granola evenly over it. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and cook for 45-50 minutes.

Step 8. Leave to cool, as it will continue to harden up over time, then break into pieces and store in a container.
