Peanutty Low-Carb Granola

This peanutty low-carb granola isn’t a granola at all, as it doesn’t have oats nor all the loaded added sugars. Instead, it gives the delightful crunch you’d expect along with a natural sweetness in the form of raw coconut, a surprising slight saltiness from the peanuts, and a toastiness from the sesame seeds. My fave way to enjoy it is several tablespoons mixed into my morning plain yogurt along with an extra tablespoon of omega 3-rich hemp seeds. Feel free to vary the ingredients to suit your own low-starch granola cravings!

Makes approximately 25 servings (2 Tbsp each)
