Are you looking for a healthy granola to sprinkle over yogurt for breakfast or to snack on in the afternoon that doesn’t have any added sugars? A low-sugar granola can be hard to find on the shelf of your grocery store, but have no fear! I have you covered with this easy-to-make, no sugar added granola clusters recipe.

One of the most common questions I get asked as a health coach is, “Is granola good for you?”. Now, let me be clear. I love granola. I’ve even made plenty of my own, including this Blueberry Vanilla Almond Granola, Tart Cherry & Almond Protein Granola and Gingersnap Granola (a favorite around here!)

Granola is perfect for sprinkling on top of Greek yogurt for breakfast or eaten as cereal with a splash of homemade almond milk.

But when it comes to buying granola at the store, it can be tricky to find granola that is made with wholesome ingredients and natural sugars such as maple syrup, brown rice syrup or honey.

And if you’re looking for a low or no-sugar option? Forget about it! That is nearly impossible to find in the pre-made aisle.

Many of the people I work with as a health coach are looking to reduce sugar in their diet where they can to help jumpstart healthy weight loss and decrease inflammation. And even though I am a big proponent of natural sugars, this often times means limiting or eliminating these as well.

When it comes to buying already packaged foods, I encourage clients to make their own version where they can, and this granola is a great place to start!

I wanted to experiment with two things I had never tried before in this granola: applesauce and egg whites. I wanted to use applesauce to add just a touch of natural sweetness from the fruit, and the egg whites to create the coveted granola clusters, instead of a handful of crumbly nuts and oats, since there isn’t much else to bind the two together.

The results? Insanely delicious, crunchy and clumpy (in a good way!).

I’m finding that the more I decrease the amount of sugar in my diet, the less I crave sweets and the sweeter things taste. Which for me, is a step in the right direction, considering I used to dive two hands first into a plate of cookies or homemade cakes.

Description

Try this easy-to-make, no sugar added healthy granola recipe. It’s perfect to sprinkle over yogurt for breakfast or to snack on in the afternoon. 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut chips*
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Add the oats, nuts, pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes and ground flaxseed to a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. In a small bowl, mix together the applesauce, coconut oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
  3. In the same small bowl, add the egg whites. Whisk until just starting to foam. Fold the egg whites into the granola mixture until well coated and evenly mixed.
  4. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread the granola into a thin layer. Bake in the oven for about 50 minutes (stirring halfway through) until the granola is golden brown.
  5. Remove the granola from the oven and let cool for about 15 minutes. Break the granola into clusters. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Notes

  • Any of the nuts or seeds can be substituted for a different variety in equal amounts. 
  • If you can’t find coconut chips, use unsweetened coconut flakes. 
  • To make this recipe vegan, you can substitute the egg for 1/3 cup pumpkin puree or ¼ cup aquafaba (the brine from a can of garbanzo beans).

  1. Will be pinning this. Looks yummy and a great way to add crunch to greek yogurt. Like the idea of adding apple sauce. Probably would even make my own for even less sugar added. #ShowYourBlogLove

  2. I’ve been trying to cut back on added sugars and have yet to find a granola recipe that works. I never thought about egg whites and applesauce – so smart!! I can’t wait to try this!

  3. YuM! I’m such a breakfast girl. I can eat breakfast any time during the day. Its a little hard to stay away for the pancakes, sugar packed cereals, and biscuits. Im always on the hunt for a healthier option and this sounds perfect

  4. These are awesome! I always try to come up with a different way of sweetening granola too! This sounds fantastic!

  5. Yum! I love granola clusters and these look amazing. Love the applesauce idea instead of sugar!

  6. This granola is so pretty and yummy looking! I love all the flavorings you used so you didn’t need to add any sugar!

  7. Nice texture. As promised, not sweet at all. I cooked it 10-15 min longer to really darkly toast the coconut flakes and maybe upped the cinnamon by 2x (also added 1/4 tsp each of ground cardamom and ginger). I didn’t see when to add the oil so I guessed and added it right before the egg which worked fine.

    1. Your modifications sound fantastic, Amy! I’m glad to hear you tried it and like the recipe. Thanks for coming back and commenting!
