Pecan Sugar-Free Granola is great for people who need to be mindful of blood sugar levels for a variety of health reasons or for those with diabetes.

Granola is a breakfast and snack food consisting of rolled oats, nuts, honey, or other sweeteners such as brown sugar, and sometimes puffed rice, which is usually baked until crisp, toasted, and golden brown. The mixture is stirred while baking to avoid burning and to maintain a loose breakfast cereal consistency. Dried fruit, such as raisins and dates, and confections such as chocolate are sometimes added. Granola is often eaten in combination with yogurt, honey, fresh fruit (such as bananas, strawberries, or blueberries), milk, or other forms of cereal. It also serves as a topping for various pastries, desserts, or ice cream. Muesli is similar to granola, except that it is traditionally neither sweetened nor baked.

Granola is sometimes taken when hiking, camping, or backpacking because it is nutritious, lightweight, high in calories, and easy to store (properties that make it similar to trail mix and muesli). Manufacturers also add honey, corn syrup, or maple syrup to it and compress it into granola bars, which make it easy to carry for packed lunches, hiking, or other outdoor activities.

  1. This sounds so good, Esme. I love all of the ingredients you listed, and it seems like a great combination. I’m always looking for a healthy snack!

    • Hi Gloria. I truly hope that you will enjoy this version, it’s sugar-free and most definitely better than store-bought as you know what you added yourself. Enjoy and please let me know what you think of it.
