Homemade Sugar Free Granola

2/3 cup honey
1/3 cup applesauce
4 TBS oil
4 cups oats
1 cup chopped nuts/seeds
1 cup cranberries/raisins
4 TBS xylitol
1/2 tsp salt

  • preheat oven to 160c
  • mix the honey, applesauce and oil in one bowl (or jug)
  • mix the dry ingredients except for the dried fruit

  • mix the wet with the dry
  • spread thinly onto two baking sheets
  • bake for 45-60 minutes until golden brown (I stirred mine several times during the baking too)
  • break up and add the dried fruit
  • Try not to eat it all at once ;-)


  1. That looks amazing! :)
    I will have to try this sometime.

  2. Wow, granola is certainly doing the rounds at the moment! I couldn't make this though, it'd be like crack to me. I'd put it on everything. Even salads! Great recipe though -- really straightforward. I like that :)

  3. I will adhere to all the steps above only using agave instead of honey and ignoring the last instruction ;)

    Thanks for posting this!
