I’ve adapted the clever guts nutty granola recipe to make it lower cal and carbs per portion (and because I didn’t have all the ingredients!)


• 100ml olive oil (replaces coconut oil)
• 2tspn cinnamon
• 100g honey
• 100g rolled oats
• 75g cashews chopped
• 75g flaked almonds
• 75g chopped hazelnuts
• 50g chopped salted pistachios (this replaces the salt in the original recipe)
• 1 egg white whipped lightly
• 40g flaxseedsThis is relatively sweet so you could remove half the honey and still be perfectly fine! All ingredients have been put into MFP and added using barcodes on packets and specific weights I plan to serve this as a sprinkling on Greek Yoghurt or Skyr


1. Gently melt the oil, honey and cinnamon together in a pan on a very low heat (only takes a minute or two)
2. Lightly whisk the egg white while the honey is melting
3. Cool the oil mixture slightly and pre-heat the oven to 100 degrees Celsius
4. Stir the egg into the oil mixture
5. Stir the egg and oil mix into the bowl containing all the chopped nuts, oats and seeds and mix so it’s all coated
6. Line a large baking sheet or roasting tin with foil or grease proof paper
7. Tip the mix into the tray and break it up and spread it around the tray
8. Pop in the oven and cook for 1.5 hours, stirring every half hour, until it is golden - add more time if you prefer it more golden!
9. Leave to cool in the oven and it will crunch up
10. Weigh the final amount and work out how many portions it will be - mine weighed 460g and I’ve divided it into 20 portions of 169 each. The individual nutritional info is shown in the pick per portion. Obviously not great for every day but for a treat would be lovely. Obviously you could divide into more portions if you wish!

    Here’s one easy recipe you can try, it’s low carb – Avocado Salmon (Serves 1 | Carbs: 4g)

    – Wild caught smoked salmon — 60 grams
    – Virgin olive oil — 2 tablespoons
    – Celtic sea salt
    – Juice (1lemon)
    – fresh, soft goat cheese — 30 grams
    – Organic ripe avocado — 1

    – Cut the avocado in half & remove the seed
    – Process the other ingredients in a processor until coarsely chopped
    – Place the cream inside the avocados then serve
    – Alternatively, you could also cut the avocados into cubes and the salmon in small pieces and mix them up together.
    – Add the rest of the ingredients with the goat cheese and mix well.
