Keto Hemp Seed Granola
Keto granola is a great way to get your fats and protein in and have a tasty treat at the same time. This can be used as cereal with almond milk, or on yogurt with a few berries, or even just as a delicious snack.
Why Include Hemp Seeds?
I am not sure if many people know what hemp seeds are. They are also known as hemp hearts and are of the hemp plant Cannabis sativa . These seeds are high in protein and high in fat while being low in carbs, as well as a lot of other health benefits, this makes it perfect for keto. Hemp seeds have no mind-altering effects, they are just super nutritious and a great addition to this granola.
Store-Bought Vs Homemade
I personally think that homemade is just better. This is no exception, I have looked at lots of granola in the stores and they all have bad ingredients that I do not want to eat. I know that store-bought is easier, but this granola takes no time at all to prepare. This recipe is not really the cluster kind of granola, but it is really healthy and delicious, plus easy to make. You can store this granola in an airtight container for several months, but it never lasts that long in my house.
