How to make low carb granola
Many moons ago, after their divorce, my mother started doing a series of Outward Bound courses. He made the basic three-week canoe trip in Northern Ontario. He did mountaineering in the Rocky Mountains. She did a sailing course in the Caribbean. He even did a dog sledding course in Yukon or the Northwest Territories or some other frozen and abandoned place. There is no doubt that these courses were essential for her in rebuilding her life and in becoming a self-confident and confident single woman in her 40s. All very impressive things, indeed. But perhaps the most important thing he got from these feats was the best granola recipe in the world. Okay, I heard laughter about that. But this is a food blog, what did you expect me to say?
However, in all seriousness, along with everything related to character development, came a tried and true recipe for the Outward Bound granola we made for years. Years and years and my mother still lives to this day. Your home can't go without a batch of granola for more than about 5 minutes. It has undergone many permutations since its inception, including a decadent version of chocolate that my older brother invented when he added chocolate chips to hot granola in the oven. These days it is full of all kinds of healthy things, grains and seeds and dried fruits. So you can honestly see that I come for my love of granola.

The problem is that your typical granola is not that healthy for me. The large amount of oatmeal, other grains, and lots of sugar means that just looking at it gives me an increase in blood sugar. And I'll confess that I miss granola, along with other types of breakfast cereal. I made up my own grain-free and sugar-free granola at the beginning of this low carb trip and it was delicious. So when Bob’s Red Mill sent me some wonderful gluten-free products to review, I decided to try another low carb granola, this time with peanut butter and lots of protein. An energetic breakfast to say the least (especially mixed with a little Greek yogurt … mmmmm).
Bob's Red Mill hardly needed to ask me to check his products. I've been a fan for a long time and I always have some of his stuff in my closets. Even before they sent me a package of goodies, I already had their coconut flour, xanthan gum, regular flax flour, flaked coconut, and oatmeal on the go. I now have hazelnut flour, golden flax flour, guar gum, and GF all-purpose flour (for my kids) to add to the collection. They have a wide variety of gluten-free products and I've had great success with all the ones I've tried.
