Created with type-1 diabetics in mind, No-Grain Granola also happens to be grain free, low glycemic, Paleo and all natural — maybe that’s why it goes so well with so many things? Here’s a run down of some favorite toppings.
If you’re going with dairy products, whole milk is a great option – there’s a good chance you can find a local dairy at the farmers market. One cup of whole milk contains 146 calories, 8g of fat, 24mg of cholesterol, 13 g of carbohydrates, 8g of protein and has a GI value of about 9.
The other dairy based option on the list, even if you can’t find local yogurt making your own is pretty simple (check it out here). Seven ounces of 2% Greek yogurt contains 150 calories, 4g of fat, 10mg of cholesterol, 8 g of carbohydrates, 20 g of protein and a low GI value.
Coconut Milk (Unsweetened)
We love coconut for so many reasons, but if you really want to up the coconut taste of No-Grain Granola this is a fun, dairy free option. One cup of unsweetened coconut milk has about 45 calories, 4.5g of fat, and less than 1 g of carbohydrates.
Almond Milk (Unsweetened)
Almond milk in a Paleo friendly option that complements the already nutty flavor of No-Grain Granola. One cup of unsweetened almond milk has about 30 calories, 2.5 g of fat, less than 1 g of carbohydrates and 1 g of protein with a GI value of about 25.
Cottage cheese, ice cream, peanut butter, dark chocolate, fresh fruit — if it sounds tasty, go for it!
