Crunchy Sugar-Free Granola Recipe
This crispy, crunchy, sugar-free granola does not have any added sugar or sugar substitutes and is a perfectly healthy morning breakfast.
This granola recipe is tried and tested, I bring with me all my camping trips. It also makes a very filling and delicious breakfast. The only main ingredient in this recipe is the oatmeal, all the other ingredients can be substituted. This recipe is made without adding any honey or sugar, although if you don't have any dates at of home you can always add 1/2 cup honey to the other ingredients.
This is a great recipe with NO sugar or fat! You can add all your favorite nuts and some dried fruit. I also put 5 drops (equal to 5 teaspoons) of liquid Splenda in the egg whites. It turns out so crispy and nice!
I love this recipe! Not only is it easy to make and sugar free, it tastes really good. I followed the recipe exactly the first time I made it, but have since added pumpkin seeds and hemp hearts for more omega 3s.
This homemade granola recipe uses oats, nuts, and dried fruit to create a tasty family-friendly breakfast cereal.
This is a tasty version of a less sweet granola. Correct, this recipe doesn't have added sugar, therefore it could be labeled sugar free. Correct, this recipe has plenty of natural sugar. However it also has plenty of starch, both of which cause a blood sugar rise in a diabetic. Diabetics, eat this granola with caution. The recipe yielded 13 cups when I made it, as written. I put it through a nutrient analysis and per 1/2 cup - 237 calories, 11 gms fat, 31 gms carbohydrate, 5 gms fiber. Hope this helps, Karen, Registered Dietitian
This recipe based on date paste is really original. The only problem I had was with the baking time. I followed the directions carefully, and my granola was soft and soggy. I had to bake it for an additiona 40 min or so, stirring every 15 min, and it became sufficiently crispy as it cooled. However, the wheat germ also burned. I would recommend mixing the date paste mixture into the rolled oats (and nothing else) FIRST, and THEN baking it at 275 degrees for about 30-45 min, stirring every 1/2 hour. Then, add the nuts, seeds, and wheat germ, and bake for an additional 10-15 min. I wouldn't add the raisins until the granola has cooled completely, or else the raisins may get further dehydrated and too hard and chewey. This recipe can indeed have no refined sugar, if you you can find no sugar added dried fruit. For multigrain, use a variety of grain flakes, such as spelt, oat, barley, triticale, wheat, and rye flakes. To increase the sweetness, use 2 cups dried fruit (choose plump, soft ones, as leaving it in gra
