Low Sugar Cinnamon Granola (GF)


I always felt that I couldn’t eat granola because of its obscene sugar content - in even the healthy stuff! Which I’m bound to make a post on this soon! However, in the meantime you have to try this granola! So much crunchy, a hint of savor and great topping for your yogurt or even just grab and go breakfast or snack!

Today I realized the binder didn’t have to be sugar - aka honey or maple syrup or dates. It could simply be egg whites! Voila! There you have it!

So easy to make! Grab all of the nuts you have in your house, then grab your gluten free oats, then grab some sea salt, cinnamon and some oil and binder! I used coconut oil because it has a hint of sweetness which I thought would be a nice touch - and it was!

Anyone else as excited as I was to try this? Grab your parchment paper, grab your baking sheet and your ingredients and lets go!

Here are your ingredients:

  • 1 organic egg white

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

  • 1 cup gluten free oats

  • 1/3 cup raw chopped cashews

  • 1/4 cup raw chopped walnuts

  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/2 sea salt


  1. Add nuts, oats, cinnamon and sea salt together.

  2. Melt coconut oil and nix with dry ingredients.

  3. Place on flat baking sheet and line with parchment paper. Bake on 350 for 20 minutes.

  4. Lay out flat to cool and dry for 10-15 minutes

Use as a topping on yogurt, add almond milk for cereal or simple eat as a snack on-the-go!
