Low Fat Granola

I got this recipe from Jolly Mom.

We sprinkle this granola on this homemade cereal.

Here's the recipe:


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, nuts, flax seeds, wheat germ, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan, warm the applesauce, brown sugar, honey, vanilla extract, and oil over low heat.
  3. Add the applesauce mixture to the oat mixture and stir until everything is evenly coated.
  4. Spread the mixture onto two baking sheets. Make sure you have an even layer and the pans aren't crowded. Bake for 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until the granola is a golden brown color.
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before eating or storing in an airtight container. The granola may seem like it's a bit mushy in parts when it comes out of the oven, but once it cools it will harden and develop that wonderful crunch granola is known for.


  1. We added dried blueberries and cranberries that I bought from Costco.
  2. You can use other nuts.
