Double Chocolate Low Carb Granola {Grain Free, Sugar Free}

Share This:

Coconut, pecans, and chocolate chips. Its almost like a German Chocolate Granola!

I have discussed with you before the difficulties I have with breakfast. I’m not a big eater in the morning, and more often than not I can’t think of anything that sounds good. (If you need some breakfast ideas, check out these Easy Breakfast Ideas for Trim Healthy Mamas). Usually, I fall back on a variation of this Yogurt Power Bowl. I have been using blueberries (less than 1/2 cup) to make the sauce, then I simply top it off with this granola. It is delicious, and easy!

My first introduction to low carb granola was from one of my blogging buddies (check out her granola recipe here). I recently purchased some organic pecan pieces, and I knew I wanted to use them in a granola recipe!

It is super easy to make, and I love to have it on hand for topping yogurt in the morning or ice cream for dessert. I even took some with me this week when we went away for the weekend!

I know you will love this recipe just as much as I do!

  1. I struggle with breakfast, too. I used to eat a piece of quiche every morning – like for 3 years. Then, nothing sounded good for breakfast. I love your idea of yogurt and blueberry sauce topped off with this yummy crunchy granola. Thanks!

  2. I’ve been making a peanut butter granola, which is great. But with all things, it’s a good idea to mix things up a bit. Double chocolate low carb granola, here I come!
