Low Carb Granola Holiday Treat

The holiday season typically results in carb overload so why not gift a low carb granola to lighten the day!

Can you believe Christmas is just a handful of days away? I sure cannot but am also so ready for the celebrations to arrive. If you’re anything like me those celebrations include a lot of cookies, breads, and pies. Aka all of the carbs! While it is the holiday season and I am ALL about indulging there are also moments when I just want something ANYTHING that has minimal carbs. So the other day I decided to try my hand at a low carb granola. One that could easily be ate alone, with milk or yogurt. The granola turned out to be incredibly delicious and has now become a favorite of mine! 

Aside from it being a great treat for the holiday season on those days you just need a little break from carbs, it also looks beautiful in a jar with a little ribbon. Making it the perfect gift to bring your neighbors or to a holiday party as a hostess gift. A fun way to spice things up from the typical plate of cookies. 

Additionally, this is a great granola to keep in mind if you’re on the FWTFL program! The granola is PACKED with healthy fats + proteins and very low in carbs. Especially after you subtract the fiber!
