It’s easily amenable to whatever you have on hand and wish to throw in.

I’ve used cranberries or dried cherries here, but raisins or dates would also be nice.

And you can substitute any dried or freeze-dried fruit for the strawberries. Or you can omit the fruit altogether and add in some shredded coconut or chopped walnuts instead…

Basically, you can have fun making the recipe your own!

Low Fat Granola Recipe (Oil Free)

A homemade and healthy low fat granola recipe, with no oil required.
5/5 (4)
Yield 1 recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup rice crispies
  • 1/4 tsp each: baking soda and salt
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit of choice
  • 1/3 cup agave or honey
  • 1 tbsp any sweetener of choice, or pinch stevia
  • optional 1 cup freeze-dried berries
  • optional handful nuts, shredded coconut, etc.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment, and set aside. In a bowl, stir together the first 6 ingredients (plus optional nuts or coconut if desired, but not freeze-dried berries yet). Add the liquid sweetener, and stir to coat. Spread granola out on the baking sheet, then bake 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn the granola, then bake 2 more minutes. Stir in the freeze-dried berries if desired. The low fat granola will look soft when it first comes out, but it hardens as it cools and will be firm by the next day.

    The first time I made this it came out perfectly. This time, it never firmed up all the way, even though it looked golden coming out of the oven. Any tips/ideas?

  2. Amy says

    I cooked at 400 for 8 minutes and it burned to black bottoms, even before flipping over. What should it look like when ready to flip and remove so I can check it frequently? And can I cook it at a lower temp?

    • Amy says

      PS I’m usually a very good baker and make sure to follow recipes carefully… Just having trouble with this one!

    • Jason Sanford says

      Hi! Hmm is your oven calibrated? Are you cooking it on the middle rack? You can definitely cook at a lower temp, and maybe your oven needs half the time??
