Homemade granola without added sugar


Granola is a healthy a delicious breakfast addition since it contains a lot of fibre and slow carbs that would keep you full until your lunch time. At some point I became addicted to granola: I would go to my local supermarket and would buy different flavours of it to mix with the Skyr yoghurt. However, its downside would be added sugar, so that even in the small granola portion I would still get 10 g of sugar. With the summer approaching and the strict diet, I’ve been following, I’ve decided to try out and make my own granola to ensure there would be no added sugar in it (I have posted already why we all should avoid sugar here).

I baked it yesterday and tried it today for the breakfast with some Skyr yoghurt and chopped berries and it was simply… yummy! So here is the recipe.
