7 Low-Sugar Granolas For A Healthy Breakfast With Added Crunch
Do you know what's super frustrating? Thinking you've found a 'healthy' granola you like only to turn over the packet to see that the ingredients list is full of so much crap that you might as well eat a donut for breakfast! (hello #sugar).
This is a shame because a good quality granola can make for such a nutritious breakfast filled with fibre, unrefined wholegrains and healthy fats. Plus, you can jazz it up with extra goodness like fruit and yoghurt for a super balanced meal.
Don't know where to start when it comes to picking the right granola? Here are some of our nutritionist-approved faves below:
1. Farmer Jo
With an impressive list of ingredients including wholegrain oats, puffed rice and probiotics naturally sweetened with rice malt and maple syrup, it's really hard to beat both the flavour and nutritional value of Farmer Jo's Cacao & Hemp Granola. With less than 5g of sugar per serve, this is a great option for those who prefer something sweet in the morning!
2. The Monday Food Co
With a minimal ingredients list that gets our tick of approval, the hazelnut, fig and cardamom granola is sweetened with the addition of figs and honey and offers a delicious flavour that's full of spice and bursting with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
3. Rumbles Paleo
Say hello to this delicious grain-free muesli made with all natural ingredients and full of essential fats to keep you satisfied until your next meal! It contains 3.9g of sugar per serve and is a great alternative to sugary cereals such as coco pops without compromising on the chocolatey flavour. We think the name speaks for itself!
4. Food For Health
High in dietary fibre thanks to the inclusion of flaxseeds, psyllium and chia, this FODMAP-friendly granola features buckwheat as its main ingredient and is naturally sweetened with rice syrup. It offers a nutty cinnamon flavour which marries well with your nut milk or yoghurt of choice!
A delicious combination of nuts, coconut, super grains and seeds, this nutty granola is baked with a drizzle of maple syrup and a hint of vanilla. It's free from fruit so you can say goodbye to added sugar and contains protein and fibre-rich flaxseed which is great for digestive health.
6. Irrewarra Vegan Granola
These delightful little artisan clusters are made with oats, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, coconut and seeds. Instead of honey, they are sweetened with GoodnessMe-approved sweeteners including rice malt syrup and maple syrup and contain 100% natural ingredients.
7. Jordan’s Low Sugar Granola
Jordan's use chicory root fibre to help achieve a desired taste and crunch, minus the sweet stuff. It's mostly made up of wholegrain oat flakes and a mix of other nuts and seeds for a healthy breakfast option that's super easy to prepare!
