Recipe originally shared by my friend Carolyn at All Day I Dream About Food.

This grain-free granola is infused with delicious chocolate and orange flavours. It's easy to prepare, and it’s perfect for breakfast, a healthy dessert, or a quick snack.

I serve mine with some unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk or scattered over some full-fat yogurt or coconut yogurt. It's freeze-friendly and perfect for travelling!

Ingredients (makes 10 servings)

Dry ingredients:
Wet ingredients:
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter, ghee or virgin coconut oil (60 ml/ 2 fl oz)
  • 15 to 20 drops liquid stevia
  • 2 tbsp water (30 ml)


  1. Preheat the oven to 150 °C/ 300 °F (fan assisted), or 170 °C/ 340 °F (conventional). Roughly chop the almonds and pecans.
  2. Place all the dry ingredients—the almonds through the salt—in a mixing bowl and combine well. Add the egg white, melted butter, ghee, or oil, liquid stevia, and water. Mix well until the mixture resembles crumbly dough.
  3. Transfer the mixture to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking process.
  4. Remove from the oven and let the granola cool. When it’s reached room temperature, transfer the granola to a glass container and have it for breakfast!
  5. Serve it with coconut milk, almond milk, cream, full-fat yogurt, or sour cream.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

The ingredients for chocolate orange spiced granola sound delicious. Unfortunately no directions on the key app just an ingredients list.

Hi Morag, you can find the instructions on Carolyn's website as linked above. This was a recipe/book review on her website and it was done years before we added all recipes in the app. I'll add the instructions to some of these cases (not too many but still takes time to do that). Thanks for your patience!

Made this for my husband (I can’t eat nuts) and he said it is delicious. I must admit the smell in my kitchen while it was baking and cooling was wonderful. I was so jealous that I couldn’t  try it....I may try to make the recipe using only seeds.

Thank you so much Diane! I love making granolas because they last for weeks and you never have to worry about not having anything for breakfast 😊 And as I recently discovered, works without any sweeteners too!

This granola is so delicious!  Sweet and orange-y!  The texture is very similar to "real" granola, which is great. Mine did have a small amount of powdery-ness, so I might add an extra egg white next time.

Thank you for your kind words!

Oh my goodness, this is so yummy - some days I have it for lunch instead of breakfast!  Simply just gorgeous and my daughters and husband like it too, so it helps defeat the odd chocolate craving they still think they have!! ;)

Thank you so much Caryn! 😊

I made this yesterday and it was simple and so delish!!! I plan to try to always have some on hand.
My kitchen smelled heavenly!

Thank you Beth! I'm glad you liked it! 😊
