With the abundance of ‘high protein’ and ‘low sugar‘ granola that have hit the market, we tried out the top 3 widely available ones which looked best nutritionally. Unfortunately the results were very disappointing with a hardly anyone being able to achieve below target readings with them. If you are a member of our Facebook group, you can see the post and results here.
So after trying lots of different recipes and making some tweaks to fit with the GD UK 8 Golden Rules, I’ve made a high protein granola without any added sugar, without any honey, syrups or dates etc. and without porridge oats, that seem to be added into most store bought granola cereals and other recipes.
This recipe should have larger nut and seed pieces which are covered in a crispy slightly sweet crumb. Perfect for topping a good GD yogurt, or eaten with gold top, or whole full fat dairy milk, almond or soya milk. The recipe makes enough to fill a large clip jar (Height 21cm Width 13cm Length 14cm). The granola is best kept in an airtight container or jar to keep it crisp.
