You’re going to love this High Protein Gluten Free Granola! Fiber & protein are hunger crushing nutrients that I recommend my clients have at breakfast to help regulate blood sugar levels and ward off excessive hunger throughout the day.
This granola combines satiating protein with plenty of fiber from the chia seeds and gluten free oats to help promote digestive health.
The average adult needs roughly 25-38 grams of fiber but the average for Americans is 15 grams per day. Getting enough fiber can help promote a diverse gut microbiome, assist with maintaining healthy blood sugar levels and also decrease bad cholesterol levels!
I love adding this granola to smoothie bowls and parfaits for an added boost of nutrition and flavor.
I kept this recipe tree nut free so Travis could enjoy but feel free to add omega 3 rich walnuts, slivered almonds or dried fruit for added antioxidants.
