sugar free granola recipe


  1. Combine all ingredients, except almonds and sunflower seeds, together, spread on baking tray and bake in the oven preheated to  150°C (302°F) for about 15 minutes, stirring few times in between.
  2. Then stir in also nuts and seeds and bake for another 15 minutes.
  3. Let it cool down before transferring to the airtight storage container.


Granola taste good with some milk or natural yoghurt and some chopped fresh fruits, such as bananas.

Add more honey for sweeter taste and more clusters.

Almond flakes can be easily replaced with chopped almonds or even different nuts, such as hazelnuts.

    This looks perfect!

  4. Thank you for the comments.
    Happy Cook – This is my first granola so I’m not sure, but all ingredients separate can be stored in cupboard for ages so I guess after baking they are even longer lasting.
