low carb thermo granola
I know some people love a sweet breakfast, and while there are plenty of sweet options most of these lack all-important protein and are loaded with carbs and sugar, which is not a great way to start the day. This recipe uses high-protein nuts and seeds to create a delicious sweet granola the whole family will love. If you are on a low-carb diet this recipe is about to become your new best friend!
