Whether you’re seeking a sugar free granola recipe for breakfast or a traveling snack, this recipe is perfect. You can flavor it with a number of extracts. If you can tolerate dry fruit, adding some adds additional texture and flavor. However, if you’re looking to lower the carbs, leave out the dried fruit. Add some fresh blueberries if you’re serving this as a breakfast cereal. It’s delicious!
Can I Make This Without Sugar-Free Sweeteners?
Yes. You can make this granola recipe using maple syrup. Check out that recipe, as it is my favorite, at Vegan Granola Recipe.

Gluten Free Sugar Free Granola Recipe
- 2-1/2 cups gluten free whole rolled oats Bob's Red Mill
- 1-1/4 cups chopped nuts almonds and walnuts
- 1/4 cup flax seed meal
- 1/4 cup seeds sunflower, hemp, etc.
- 1/4 cup oil
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or banana extract
- 45 drops liquid stevia Trader Joe's
- 1/4 teaspoon monk fruit extract powder not a sugar alcohol
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon or omit to make other flavors
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup dried berries or chopped dried fruit optional
Preheat oven to 275ºF.
Combine the oats, nuts, seeds, and flaxseed meal in a large bowl; set aside.
In a measuring cup, combine the oil, vanilla or banana extract, liquid stevia, monk fruit extact, cinnamon (if using), and salt.
Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture and stir until all of the dry ingredients are coated. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet and distribute in a single layer. Bake for 30 minutes, turning the granola over once midway through baking.
Add dried fruit, if desired, and stir to combine.
Transfer to a cooled baking sheet or heat-proof bowl and allow to cool, uncovered.
Serve as a snack or cereal. (I enjoy it plain, with fresh fruit, and with homemade raw almond milk sweetened with stevia and sometimes with vanilla extract.) Cover and store at room temperature for up to 1 week.
