Most Cereal is Not Keto
If you browse the cereal aisle and start scoping out nutrition labels, you’ll quickly notice that most people are packing themselves full of sugar during the most important meal of the day.
Sadly, the granola that most people believe is healthy and nutritious often contains more sugar than the demonized kids’ cereals consisting of chocolate and chalky marshmallows.
Whether you’re looking at “healthy” boxed cereals or notoriously unhealthy cereals, they have one thing in common – the sugar and carbohydrate content is unacceptable for anyone on a keto diet.
Fortunately, this cinnamon keto granola satisfies your sweet tooth without taking you out of ketosis.
Sweet Taste, No Sugar
Far be it from me to completely deprive you of something sweet for breakfast. I worked out a recipe that is sugar-free and sweetly satisfying.
For starters, I used cinnamon. This spice naturally adds some sweetness to your recipes, and it’s great for baking.
I also added coconut flakes, although they won’t add a ton of sweetness. Make sure you buy the unsweetened variety – the sweetened type contains added sugar and, in most cases, preservatives.
Finally, you can add either Stevia or erythritol to taste. These sweeteners won’t drive up your blood sugar like traditional white or brown sugar, so they won’t jeopardize your keto diet.
