    Evening everyone, I have scrambled eggs and bacon for breakies and my bgs are good. I really fancy some breakfast cereal and the TV adverts for granola look so scrummy. Is there a granola that won't spike me, or another cereal. Any ideas for some nice cereals please? Hope my message finds everyone well. Q.

    I think @Rachox has a good recipe for granola type breakfast.

    You can make your own granola. Google keto granola bars. Using granola and eating it with milk as a traditional cereal, not a good idea. If you can tolerate unsweetened almond milk, possibly. Be led by your meter.

    I do much the same without chocolate bits and with whatever seeds and nuts I have around. Also served with Greek yogurt and maybe berries if I have any.

    Personally I'd stick with the bacon and eggs or something else meaty or ditch breakfast altogether.

    I agree with @bulkbiker . But mist particularly i personally woukd not touch a commercial brand of cereals with a 100 metre barge pole ( if such a device existed). Such cerals are artificially infused with vitamins that is hiw deficient the base material is and most people find they spike NSLs even in non-diabetucs.
