Did a search and came up with nothing! Anyone have a great SF granola recipe?

The recipe room had two recipes with granola in them but not one for granola. I prefer to use erythritol or possibly SF honey if anyone has a good recipe.

Thank you

I've been making this, only I leave the dough in crumbles and bake it. That way it's more like granola. I've left out the flax and just used almond flour with good results. You can add unsweetened dried fruits, different nuts, coconut, sf chocolate chips, different flavorings, whatever you want.

I found a nice one on pinterest under low carb granola. It consists of nuts, peanut buter, butter, stevia, ground flax and I sprinkle cinnamon before baking. Its is my favorite cereal, even my kids and hubby love it.
"Peanut butter flax granola"

You might try--

Using the "search this forum" for---tvp granola. I use the one from poster Wendi. You can also add it to plain yogurt for some crunch.

Thanks y'all so much! I didn't know this thread had gotten moved and I have been looking for it since I posted

Anyhow, going to try all of them. And soobee, I would like a basic recipe to springboard from: oats, almonds, pecans, possibly SF honey but prefer erythritol. Would be ok with flax and chia as well.

I love the suggestions for using the davinci syrups to make granola...I use Monin but I am not very creative in how to use them. This is perfect! I am going to try caramel and cookie dough flavors first!

Looks delicious. Think I will try the Monin syrup instead of the applesauce...do you think that would work?

I don't use oats, so none of the recipes I saved have them as an ingredient. I also have some chocolate granolas if you would like. Here are some of the ones I have.
Granola Laura
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw walnuts
1 cup raw pecans
1 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup flax seed meal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup butter or coconut oil
1/2 cup sugar-free maple-flavored syrup
Heat oven to 300 F. Cover baking sheet with sides with a silicon mat or greased parchment paper. Roughly chop the nuts. You can do this in a food processor, but if you do, start with the harder nuts -- the almonds in this recipe or filberts (hazelnuts) if you use them. Once they are chopped up a bit you can add the softer nuts (walnuts, pecans). Otherwise the softer ones will become meal before the hard ones are chopped. Melt the butter or coconut oil. Mix the syrup and coconut oil or butter together. Combine the nuts, coconut, seeds, and salt. Turn out onto the baking sheet. Press into an even layer. Taste for sweetness. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Twice during the baking, stir the mixture with a large spoon and press back down. Bake until fragrant and lightly browned on the surface. Let cool completely in pan. It will crisp as it cools.
Flax Seed Granola Piekinns1 lb. ground flax seeds
1 cup shredded coconut
1 cup thin sliced almonds
1 Tbs. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup splenda
1 Tbs. vanilla
6 egg whites
1/2 cup water
Mix dry stuff and wet stuff in separate bowls, then mix together. Spread it in a jelly roll pan and bake until completely dry at 250* for about 3 hrs. Every hour while baking, take a fork and break up any large bits. Cool completely before it is stored.
Granola Maria
2 cups psyllium husks
2 cups chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1 cup sunflower seeds
3/4 cup Jay Robb vanilla whey or egg white protein
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup coconut oil or pasture fed butter
1/3 cup Nature's Hollow Xylitol Honey
1/2 cup erythritol
1 tsp. stevia glycerite
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Celtic sea salt
Optional Additions:
1 cup Whey Crisps
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the psyllium husks, nuts, seeds, vanilla whey protein powder, erythritol, stevia, sesame seeds, cinnamon, and salt. Melt the coconut oil, and stir it together with the syrup or honey. Pour over the dry mixture. Spray a big roasting pan with coconut oil spray, and turn the granola into it. Place in the oven, and let it bake for 40-50 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool, and store in an air tight container.
Coconutty Crunch Linda
2 ounces walnuts
4 ounces pecans
2 ounces almonds (I like sliced)
2 ounces unsweetened coconut (about 1/2 cup)
2-4 tablespoons flax meal
1-2 ounces unsalted sunflower kernels (1 ounce is a scant 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/3 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch salt, optional
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Coarsely chop the nuts and put them in a medium bowl. Stir in the coconut, flax meal and sunflower kernels. In a small bowl, mix the butter, sweetener, vanilla and salt. Pour over the nuts and toss to mix well. Spread on a large jelly roll pan and bake at 300║ about 10-15 minutes, stirring every few minutes, until lightly toasted. Watch closely so it doesn't burn. Mix in the cinnamon; cool. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Oh my goodness, I love these! I have every ingredient for every recipe except sunflower seeds. I particularly like adding psyllium husks, whey protein or whey crisps..I have a ton of each and am always looking for ways to use them.

Thank you!
