Healthy No Added Sugar Granola
April 10, 2016
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you’ll know I am a HUGE fan of cereal. My all time favourite type is granola. I’d give my right arm for a bowl of those sweet, crunchy oat clusters in ice cold almond milk. But if you’ve ever looked at the nutritionals of usual supermarket granola its not pretty. Masses of added sugar and palm oil are the usual suspects.
Rather than miss out and avoid it completely, I thought I’d come up with my own healthier, no added sugar variety. Still with all the sweet and crunchy oat clusters, but made without sugar and only healthy fats.
- Prep: 15 mins
- Cook: 15 mins
- Yields: 2 servings
1Pre heat your oven to 150’c
3Mix everything together so all the muesli is coated with both the coconut oil and sugar alternative.
4Tip this out on top a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
5Bake for around 12-15 minutes. You’ll need to adjust the time depending on the muesli you use and the type of oven so keep checking it. You want it to turn slightly golden brown, but you don’t want to burn the dried fruit.
6Once it has reached this stage, remove it from the oven and leave it to cool on the baking paper. As it cools it will crisp up and you can break the granola into chunks as big (or small) as your heart desires. I used mine as a healthy crumble topping which also works great!
