Ingredients

  • 3 Cups Roasted Peanuts
  • 1 Cup Walnuts
  • 1/2 Cup Swerve or Lakanto (see sweetener notes below) granular
  • 1/2 Cup Peanut Flour
  • 2 Egg Whites

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add roasted nuts (3 cups) to a food processor. “Pulse” 5-10 times using 1-second intervals. The number of times you pulse the nuts will depend on how small you'd like your “grains”. I usually go with 8 times, any smaller and the grains become too small.
  • Transfer nuts to a large bowl.
  • Add erythritol (1/2 cup) and peanut flour (1/2 cup) and stir to coat.
  • Add egg whites (2) and stir until the powder forms a paste coating the nuts.
  • Spread onto the prepared baking sheet in a thin and even layer.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes, then rotate the pan and bake for 7 more minutes.
  • Once granola has finished baking and is cool enough to handle, break the larger pieces into small (granola sized) clusters.
    NOTE: The granola in the center of the pan will be less crispy -- I like bake that a bit longer (about 4 minutes), after removing the super crisp grains.
  • Serve with milk or yogurt, and enjoy!

Notes

  • Lakanto, Swerve, or Erythritol. I stick to Lakanto and Swerve which are a 1:1 swap with traditional sugar. If using a different brand of Erythritol, keep in mind it's 70% as sweet as sugar, so you may need to add more to taste. 
  • Peanut flour should only contain defatted peanuts and salt and is a different product than peanut butter powder (which is often sweetened with sugar). Each brand defats the peanuts in varying amounts, I prefer Protein Plus Peanut Flour
  • Nutritional information. This recipe makes approximately 4 cups of granola. A serving size is roughly 1/3 cup:
