For years, and years I’ve been looking for a yummy granola brand that is low in sugar (or completely sugar-free!), that’s crunchy but chewy enough that I won’t fear of breaking my teeth.

… Do you feel me?

It’s been impossible! There are many granolas out there that I love because, yes, they are sugar-free and made with smart sugar substitutions, have amazing added superfoods, but always, and I mean ALWAYS they’re either:

  • Too expensive
  • Too crunchy for my sensitive teeth

Since New Years seems always like a good time to step up a notch our wellness efforts, I decided to create my own granola concoction that’s easy to do, chewy enough (while still having that crunch factor!) and super affordable ingredients! Thanks to my friends from MaraNatha® Almond Butter I was able to get that chewy delicious finish I was looking for while adding all the amazing nutrients that their almond butter has!

Sugar-Free Granola


  • 2 cups Arrowhead Mills® Organic oats
  • 4 tablespoons MaraNatha® Almond Butter
  • 1 tablespoon coconut Spectrum® Culinary Oils
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)


  1. Mix the oats, cinnamon, nutmeg and coconut flakes
  2. Separately, mix the coconut oil, almond butter and maple syrup warm for 30 secs in the microwave and mix very well with a fork until you have an even mixture
  3. Mix the dry ingredients with the wet mixture, make sure to mix well
  4. Place the oats in a baking pan
  5. Bake for 30 minutes, at 350 degrees
  6. Serve and let it cool
  7. And voila, your granola is ready to use!


Storage the rest on mason jar for future use. Preferably, within 2 weeks!

One of the things I love the most from MaraNatha® Almond Butter, and why I’m making my granola with is that they cover several wellness points that are important to me when it comes to the ingredients I use for my recipes. They are:

  • Non-GMO
  • Gluten-Free
  • Packed with protein

For my recipe, I’m using the ‘no-sugar’ and ‘no-salt’ added one, but they also have other DELICIOUS options like MaraNatha® Dark Roast and/or MaraNatha® Light Roast.

Best part?

You can find all the ingredients super easy, at your nearest Walmart! Save $3 when you buy two different brands: MaraNatha®, Spectrum™ Culinary Oils! Look for Shopkick rewards while offers last. Look for savings on specially marked packages and save up to $7

As usual, whenever you do this recipe don’t forget to TAG ME in your pictures and use the hashtag #CandyGlowSquad so I can see you in action, and cheer you on!

Now, off I go to prepare breakfast for tomorrow (I’m using this granola as a topping for my yogurt + strawberries and blueberries… yums!).
