Run, don’t walk, to your kitchen and whip up a batch of this berrylicious keto granola. Trust me, you will be happy you did! It’s crispy and buttery, and makes the best sugar-free breakfast or snack.
I’ve been making my own keto cereal recipes for a long time now, and I am continuously amazed at how easy it is. And how tasty! I couldn’t stop grabbing handfuls of this granola as I passed through the kitchen.
Neither could my husband. I had to secret some away in my office for myself so that it didn’t disappear on me. Because that’s just the kind of loving wife I am! So generous of spirit, no?
Great flavors for keto granola
I feel like my whole keto baking world has expanded significantly since I discovered One On One Flavors. While many companies make good sugar-free flavorings and extracts, no one quite has the range that One On One does. They call themselves The Flavor Superstore with good reason.
I first started hearing about them on Instagram from other keto folks. They grabbed the attention of the low carb community because of their vast array of options, both sweet and savory.
I often rely on flavorings and extracts for my keto desserts, as they allow me to play with flavors that aren’t typically low carb. Things like pineapple, maple syrup, cherries, and apples.
Does One on One have a flavor for that? Yep. Beyond the basics, they have flavors for EVERYTHING, even things beyond your wildest keto imagination. Things like blackberry cobbler, or beignets. And chewing gum! And fried chicken! I am not kidding.
And the vast majority of their flavorings are keto-friendly and non-GMO. Because they’ve become so popular with keto dieters, they’ve put together a fun array of Keto Packs.
So when I got it in my head to make a berry flavored keto granola, similar to the one my kids love from Trader Joe’s, One on One was the obvious choice.
How to make Keto Granola
I’ve been making variations of keto granola for almost a decade now, starting with my ever popular Low Carb Peanut Butter Granola. It’s remarkably easy to do and is great for both breakfasts and snacks.
It’s great for meal prep too, since it can last on the counter for weeks.
Here are my best tips for getting it right:
- A mix of various nuts, coconut, and seeds gives keto granola the best texture and the one that is most similar to oatmeal. You can really do whatever combinations appeal to you most.
- You do need a food processor or a high powered chopper to grind the nuts and seeds and break them up. I like the pulse function on my processor for control. You want to take them to the point that much of the mixture resembles oats, with some bigger pieces for texture.
- The sweetener you use makes a big difference to the outcome of homemade low carb cereal. In my experience, only erythritol based sweeteners like Swerve will allow for a crispy, crunchy texture. If you don’t mind a softer texture, you’re free to use what you like most. Read my tutorial on The Ultimate Guide to Keto Sweeteners for more information.
- Flavor to taste. The One on One Flavors are highly concentrated and so I only used 4 drops of the blueberry and 4 drops of the strawberry. Because this keto granola recipe is egg-free, you can stir in your flavors and taste, and adjust as you see fit while it’s still unbaked. The flavors don’t lose their potency during baking.
- Press the mixture firmly into an even layer on the baking pan. This helps the granola bake more evenly. The edges still get a bit brown so you need to stir a few times and re-press it back into the pan.
- LET IT COOL COMPLETELY. How many times have I said this? Possibly one billion. But keto baked goods continue to crisp up as they cool.
- Once cool, it will be like one big crisp cookie. Use your hands to break it up into the desired size for eating.
- As with any granola, keto-friendly or not, the serving size is smallish. It packs a hefty calorie and fat punch so ⅓ cup is all you need. Especially if you serve it with heavy cream, as I like to do!
- Want to make it dairy-free? Use melted coconut oil or avocado oil in place of the butter.
- Want to lower the carb count even more? Skip the freeze dried berries and just rely on the flavorings.
And hey, who says you have to stick to berry flavors? Now that you know about all the wonderful offerings from One on One, the sky’s the limit. You could even do fried chicken flavored granola. I would think you were weird, but hey, you do you, Boo! I’d still love ya!

Mixed Berry Keto Granola
- Preheat the oven to 325F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Add the nuts, coconut, and seeds to a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some larger pieces. Transfer to a large bowl.
- Stir in the Swerve and the melted butter. Add the berry flavorings and stir to combine.
- Spread the mixture out on the prepared baking sheet. Top with another piece of parchment or waxed paper and press down firmly to flatten it and to help it stick together. Remove the top parchment.
- Bake 15 minutes, then remove and turn the oven off. Stir the granola, moving the edge parts toward the center and the center parts toward the edges. Top with the parchment again and press down to flatten.
- Let the mixture sit in the warm oven for another 10 to 15 minutes, then remove, stir, and flatten once more. Let cool completely on the pan, then break up with your hands into small pieces.
- Stir in ½ cup of freeze dried berries (you can break them up a bit with your fingers to get better distribution). Serve with your favorite cream or milk, or simply eat by the handful!
