A few years back I had one of the most delicious salads I’ve ever had at a restaurant in Bali. The salad itself was quite basic — a mix of fresh and steams greens and vegetables — with a delicious dressing.

But the real star and thing that transformed the salad into being such a memorable dish was the savoury granola sprinkled on top. A mix of seeds and shredded coconut with the perfect umami flavourings.

I played around with the recipe at home until I got it as close to the restaurant version as I could. A little sweet and a little savoury, this low-carb and keto granola is the perfect topping to any salad, stew, curry or soup and adds not only it’s delicious flavour but a lovely crunchy texture.

Looking for a tasty breakfast sweet granola option? Give these low-carb granola recipes a try!
