    Hi

    Just thought I’d share these pics and info on a breakfast cereal that I discovered yesterday in Sainsbury’s. The carb amount per 40g is 5.9 and 14.8 per 100g.

    I used 20g, and added almond milk, some chopped almonds, chia seed, psyllium husk and ground flaxseed, with a dash of cream and some sweetener.

    Too high carb for me. Google keto granola or keto granola bars, loads of recipes online.

    They look yum, I think somebody else posted about this brand. I did actually get some but I've not tried it yet! Thanks for posting, I love it when people find something new and let others know and let's face it, not everybody is keto. x

    I see it's gluten free which is helpful and lower in carbs, I see the top ingredient is coconut, which I'm not keen on and I haven't eaten breakfast cereals for many years. How much is it please ?
    TIA

    Did you test your BG afterwards ?

    If 40g is a portion, then that seems reasonable at under 6 g carbs.
