Double the recipe if you want more. You can also try various nuts such as walnuts, pecans or almonds in this.
You could replace the bone broth protein with a different type of protein powder or just use cacao and stevia.
Dr Jockers Comments:
This is a really tasty, low-carb, fat burning, ketogenic granola recipe that your whole family will enjoy. This is rich in healthy fats, collagen protein, fiber and micronutrients.
Most granola recipes use oats, honey and dried fruit which are high in carbohydrates that cause an increase in your blood sugar. This recipe uses stevia and monk fruit (in the bone broth protein) as the main flavoring agents. Stevia and monk fruit are natural sweeteners with no impact on our blood sugar.
When you sprout sunflower and pumpkin seeds, it removes the lectins, phytic acids and enzyme inhibitors and makes the nutrients in the seeds more bioavailable. The Go Raw brand makes this easy…as they are already pre-sprouted and salted for optimal flavor.
Bone broth protein is rich in collagen protein, glycosamino glycans, chondroitin sulfate, proline, glycine and L-glutamine. These nutrients support the health of our joints, skin, hair and nails.
I like to use 20-40 grams of bone broth protein each day in order to supply the optimal levels of these nutrients. I get this powder in smoothies and protein puddings as well as recipes like this.
You can use varying amounts of grass-fed butter, ghee or coconut oil to add more healthy fats to this recipe. The more of these you use the gooier the texture will be and the longer you may have to bake it.
