While old-fashioned rolled oats have been the classic granola base since, well, the beginning of time, they don't have to be. They're super healthy, but they're high in carbs and prohibited on a keto and Paleo diets. Surprisingly, you can get a very similar taste and texture by swapping those oats with a mix of nuts and seeds, and Olivia Culpo's healthy granola recipe works with almost every eating plan.

"I like it in yogurt, but you can also have it plain, with milk, in smoothies, or I put it in my pancakes," she writes. The mix is also pretty simple, with nuts and seeds—including almonds, pecans, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and hemp seeds—as well as unsweetened coconut chips, golden monk fruit sweetener, and cinnamon. While Culpo's recipe calls for an egg white and honey, those ingredients can always be replaced with a flax egg and maple syrup, based on your diet.

After mixing your oat-free granola and baking it in the oven until golden brown, you can break it into clusters and enjoy a fiber- and protein-packed breakfast.
