Ah, granola, such a delicious treat that typically centers around “healthy whole grains.” Well, we only eat a few, if any, grains at all. How can we still enjoy granola without the grain? One word: bacon.

This granola has a nut base, which means that it’s filled with healthy fats, fiber, and protein. Then I sweetened it with honey, gave it some flavor with vanilla and cinnamon, and then threw in some bacon. Bacon makes everything better. So, why not make bacon granola?!

You can change it up too if you’d like. I have done variations that included: shredded coconut, dried rosemary, raisins, and even dark chocolate chips. The perfect snack to keep in your purse or diaper bag for when you are out and about!

  1. Wow! Thank you so much for this recipe!! I just started a Keto diet. No grains, no granola…or so I thought. All I have to do is leave out the honey, maybe sub stevia instead. Definitely will try this.
