Sugar Free Granola Recipe – Easy, Crunchy, and Tasty
In this video, I share a Sugar Free Granola Recipe that is easy to make and is both crunchy and tasty. Plus, the best part of this homemade granola is that it contains no sugar, no artificial sweeteners, and no oil. And even though these ingredients are not included, you’ll be surprised that you don’t even miss them!
Old-Fashioned Oats Are Just the Beginning
To make this granola, you start with a few simple ingredients that most kitchens already have on hand including old-fashioned rolled oats. But that’s just where you get started. Now the fun begins. Here is where you get to pick a couple of “mix-ins” to jazz things up!
And the sky is the limit here. You can add any type of soaked nuts or seeds, like crispy pecans, coconut, dried fruit, and even chocolate chips (dark chocolate is the best).
Want to Make This Gluten-Free?
The main backbone of this granola recipe is, of course, old-fashioned rolled oats. Now, oats are naturally gluten-free, however because of various reasons, they can become exposed to gluten.
So if you are on a gluten-free diet, be sure to search out oats that are guaranteed to be gluten-free. And they should be easy to find. I have often seen them at my grocery store marketed under the Bob’s Red Mill Brand.
What About Sprouted Old-Fashioned Oats?
Do you prefer to soak your oats before you cook them? If so, I’ve got you covered. Awhile back, I discussed whether we need to soak our grains…or not. A lot has to do with our genetics, our ancestral ties, and when it comes right down to it, what agrees with our digestion. And if you would like to learn more about this, be sure to watch my video titled Never Soak Your Grains Again…3 Surprising Reasons Why.
But if you have found that soaked grains and/or soaked and sprouted grains agree with you the best, you can certainly buy Sprouted Old-Fashioned Oats from the To Your Health Sprouted Flour Company.
Granola Cereal or Granola Clusters?
As you mix up a batch of this sugar free granola, you have a couple of options when it comes to baking it. First, you’ll line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Next, you can spread the granola out on the baking sheet in one layer.
Or if you want, you can mold about a teaspoon-full in your hand and place the clusters onto the baking sheet. And making the clusters are fun since they make a great topping for yogurt or ice cream!
Get Ready to Bake
Once you decide on cereal or clusters, it’s time to bake your homemade granola. First, you’ll pop it into your oven, and within about 15 minutes, you’ll have the best granola you’ve ever tasted. So don’t wait. Make this today. You’ll be glad you did!
