This low-carb Cranberry Christmas Granola is the ultimate keto family breakfast for the festive season. We can all over indulge a little at Christmas but this makes a nice change if you’re looking for something lighter.

Delicately spiced with cinnamon, vanilla, orange zest and a hint of nutmeg, perfect to snuggle up on the sofa with and your favourite Christmas movie. You can make a big match and the base keeps for a good month in the cupboard. Once cranberries are out of season you can totally make and replace with any fresh low GI berry of choice.

These also make a super cute low-carb speedy pudding if you layer them in glasses with cream, coconut or Greek yoghurt.

This granola is so tasty! I like to set aside a serving in a bowl to munch throughout the day or have some before workouts. I also plan on budgeting my macros so I can have this the next time I go to the movies with my family. It would make an excellent popcorn alternative!
