From the Sugar Happy Kitchen: Vegan- Keto Low-Carb Homemade Granola with 5.32 Net Carbs

If you are like me- you may have thought granola derived from a German European country, like Muesli from Switzerland. Surprisingly, the origin is from Dansville New York, dating back to 1863. Dr. Caleb James Jackson, a nutritionist, struggled with good health most of his life. Until he went to a spa that reversed his physical condition with hydrotherapy. The revival in his good health changed his professional interest from farmer, journalist abolitionist to becoming a physician. He became a vegetarian, giving up meat, coffee, tea and alcohol. As a whole foods advocate, at the age of 52, he developed granola, originally named “Granula” at his Jackson Health Resort.

If you are tired of having eggs, bacon or ham for breakfast- granola cereal is a refreshing alternative to the dairy, soy or meat products. It is high in protein and fiber. My recipe has less sugar and less calories than any other alternative I have seen on the market. If you want a filling and nutritious breakfast without the high carbohydrate sugar found in most granolas, try my new recipe. It is for the health-conscious person.
