Low-Carb Upside Down Granola Cake

Author: Tamara Williams
Ever loved two ingredients separately and wondered how they mesh together? I love the texture and taste of the cake when I use the on-plan cake mix and the granola is so good. So I thought, why not combine the two? Voila! The two pair nicely together. Hope you think so too.
