Low Carb Pumpkin Granola Recipe

keto granola cereal in a bowl with leaves and cinnamon sticks Cereal is a loved breakfast meal for many. Unfortunately most cereal is not keto approved. But I found a way to make keto granola that is easy and delicious! This keto pumpkin granola has a hint of pumpkin pie spice to match that earthy, nutty flavor from my basic low carb granola recipe.

When the leaves change color and start to drop, that’s when I crave pumpkin flavors. This sugar-free pumpkin granola cereal is the perfect way to start the morning and keep me full until my next meal.

Pumpkin Flavor

For this recipe, I like to use pumpkin pie spice to add a little pumpkin flavor to my granola. But for some extra pumpkin flavor you can add a pumpkin spice extract. These drops are concentrated so you can add just a little bit and adjust to your taste preference.

Nutty Granola

This bulk of this keto granola recipe is made from nuts. I have my favorite combination of nuts and seeds listed in the recipe that I like to use when making this grain-free granola. However, feel free to adapt this recipe and use whatever combination of nuts and seeds you like. You can even use different quantities too. You will have to change the macros though.

Some options for keto approved nuts and seeds are:

  • Almonds
  • Pecans
  • Macadamia Nuts
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Walnuts
  • Brazil Nuts
  • Chia Seeds
  • Hemp Hearts
  • Cashews

Is the Egg Necessary?

The egg white is a necessary ingredient to help hold the keto granola together. You could omit the egg, but you will just have a bowlful of nuts, seeds and sweetener.

Can I Omit the Egg Whites from Keto Granola?

Yes, but without the egg whites, which act as an emulsifier in the ingredient mix, your keto granola will not stick together very well. Plus, egg whites also add extra protein to the healthy and nutritious easy keto breakfast.

Pumpkin Granola Storage

I recommend making a big batch of this keto granola so you can enjoy it throughout the week. Keep it in an airtight container like a mason jar or cereal container. To maintain optimal freshness, store in the refrigerator.
