Keto Pumpkin Granola
A fun Fall twist on a grain-free, low carb cereal, this keto pumpkin granola has a hint of spice and is a delightful morning treat.
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.

Great recipe. I’m so glad you had the alternate list of nuts, I didn’t have macadamia nuts but I did have raw cashews so I substituted, and it turned out great. I have a very happy husband.
