Low Fat Granola Recipe (Oil Free)

A homemade and healthy low fat granola recipe, with no oil required.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Yield 1 recipe


  • 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.


  • 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.
