Low sugar granola

Best Granola Recipe

Naturally sweetened and perfectly crunchy homemade granola - simple, low sugar, and so-so good.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 2 hrs 30 mins
Total Time 2 hrs 40 mins
Servings 6 -8 servings


  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • ½ cup old fashioned thick oats
  • ¼ cup buckwheat flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp water


  • Preheat oven to 200°F. Line a medium size baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, buckwheat flour, and salt.
  • In a small bowl, mix melted coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, and water. Add wet ingredients to oat mixture. Stir until well combined.
  • Spread the granola mixture evenly on baking pan, squeezing it a little with your fingers to create clusters.
  • Place baking pan in preheated oven and bake for 2-2 ½ hours. Since the oven temperature is very low, you don't have to stir the granola. The first time you make this recipe, I would suggest to check on the granola after 1 ½ hours, since your oven temperature may vary slightly.
  • After 2-2 ½ hours, turn off the heat, leaving the baking pan in the oven to dry out while the oven cools.
  • When completely cool, remove from oven and store in an air tight container for up to a month.


*Add 1 tsp of cinnamon or vanilla to the wet ingredients for added flavor.
