Gluten-free, Nut-free, Low-sugar Granola!

Updated: Oct 3, 2019

Granola and yoghurt is one of my go-to breakfasts if I'm in a rush or is perfect for an evening snack. However, the majority of the gluten-free granola packets I can find in the shops either contain nuts (which I'm also allergic to) or has a lot of added sugar (not ideal for diabetics). Therefore, I decided to try and make my own alternative to this granola and was very pleasantly surprised with the result! This alternative is gluten-free, nut-free and has no added sugar.


  • 2 cups of gluten-free oats

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

  • 4 tablespoons of natural honey

  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

  • 1 egg

  • blueberries/rasberries/cranberries

  • 3 tablespoons of FAGE 0% Total Greek Yoghurt

What to do:

  • Preheat the oven to 150 degrees and put baking parchment in the baking tray.

  • Combine the gluten-free oats, olive oil, honey and cinnamon in a bowl.

  • Whisk the egg separately then add it into the other ingredients.

  • Spread the granola mix onto the tray and leave in the oven for 40-45 minutes.

  • I also put baking parchment over the top of the granola to make sure it didn't burn.

  • After about 20 minutes take the tray out and toss the granola around to separate it then put it back in the oven.

  • Once it is completely cooked, place it in the fridge for about 20 minutes so it cools.

  • After it's cooled, add it to a cup of yoghurt (I chose a natural greek yoghurt as it's better for sugar levels) some berries and it's ready to eat!

  • The left over granola can be put in a tupperware box and is a really quick, healthy and easy option for the mornings. It is also a slow-energy releasing food so you'll be left satisfied for longer.
