Low Sugar Granola

A client of mine made this granola recipe as Christmas presents for all her friends and said that they are begging for more. Typical granola recipes are filled with sugar!  I like this one because it is SIMPLE to make and it contains minimal sugar in comparison to store bought brands.  The main ingredients are nuts and seeds so it is packed with protein.  If you are scared of the fat and calories in nuts, you should read Benefits of Nuts: studies show that people who eat nuts regularly tend to be thinner people.


  • 1 cup rolled oats (use gluten free oats if Celiac patient or have major gluten intolerance)
  • 4.5 cups raw nuts & seeds (use a variety of choice/preferably organic)
  • 1/2 – 1 cup of dried fruit of your choice (cranberries or raisins)
  • Cinnamon (to taste)
  • Sea salt (to taste)
  • Raw Agave


Preheat oven to 400. Combine oats, nuts, and cinnamon in a bowl.  Add just enough agave to form oat mixture into small clusters. Bake until toasted and slightly brown.  Cool, add dried fruit, and portion out into 1/4 – 1/3 portions. It’s a perfect snack served with yogurt (Greek, goat, sheep, or buffalo).
