Keto Grainless Granola is just another way of saying that this granola recipe does not include any grains or added sugars. Did you ever think that you would find something so great!? Most granolas, even paleo granolas, contain some form of added sugar. Even if it’s in the form of pure maple syrup or raw honey, it’s still technically added sugar. This would mean that if you are trying to eat ketogenic or high in fats then you may want to consider doing a DIY grainless granola. This recipe is not exclusive to those eating ketogenic, it’s perfect for anyone that is looking to enjoy lots of rich, nutty flavors without an sweetener!
Why is it So Hard to Find Portable Snacks?
For a person that eats a clean diet and pays attention to ingredient lists, it becomes clear pretty fast that there aren’t a whole lot of snack/protein bars on the market with stellar quality. It’s difficult to find any bars that aren’t packed with added sugars, dried fruits, or stevia/monk fruit and artificial sweeteners. But they are so tempting because they are tasty, fast, convenient, delicious and ideal for any person living a fast paced life.
The Perfect Snack
Don’t worry, I have good news for you! This is the exact reason that I created this Keto Grainless Granola recipe for the Functional Feed (more on that in a second)–to provide a delicious, quick and convenient snack to pack on the road. It’s completely free of any sweeteners and artificial sweeteners, which I especially love!
