Before I share my recipe for Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) granola, I just want to share a few moments from the last few weeks with you. If you aren't following me over at Instagram I do share a few of my daily happenings so please do follow me if you want to keep up-I would love to follow you too! Just click here if you would like to keep up with me at Instagram.
The most exciting pictures to share from last week are some pictures from +Madeleine's formal! I can't believe my little girl is 17 now and that at the end of the year she will have finished school forever!
I've also done lots of faffing around the house and some healthy cooking.
Last year I posted a delicious recipe for granola that is a definite family favourite but it is full of carbs. This year I have been trying to cut carbs so I made a batch of this delicious LCHF (Low Carb Healthy Fat) Nutty Granola to have with yoghurt at breakfast time and it is amazing!
It is so yummy and so healthy because it is full of vitamin rich ingredients including linseed. Also known as flaxseed, it is a rich source of omega 3 essential fatty acids.

- 2 cups Chopped almonds
- 2 cups Chopped walnuts
- 1 cup Chopped Cashews
- 1 cup Sunflower seeds
- 1 cup Pepita seeds
- 1 cup Coconut flakes
- 1/3 cup Flax seeds
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
- 3 tbsp Melted butter
- 1 tbsp Maple syrup (optional )
- Coconut Oil for Baking Tray
Mix everything together in a bowl then spread evenly on a large lined baking tray. Spray baking tray with coconut oil. Roast everything in a slow oven (I baked mine at 150C/300F) for about 20-30 minutes. The timing will depend on your oven so keep a close eye on it and try to stir it every 7 minutes so it evenly browns. Stir a few times during that time. When it is golden remove from oven to cool. When it has cooled down store in an airtight container. This yields approximately 20 servings for 2 tablespoons per person per serving.
