SUGAR FREE SWEETENER Options : Option 1: NO sweetenerThis recipe works without adding any sweetener. No need to add more oil. Roast the grain free granola like this. It is the perfect option for breakfast 'grain free cereal' bowl. Then, simply serve your grain free granola with nut milk and sweetened your breakfast bowl with natural sugar free sweetener like stevia or swerve. Option 2 : Maple Flavored Sugar-Free Syrup This coat the grain free granola perfectly, perfect to add natural sugar free sweetness and use granola either in desert like parfait or breakfast bowl. Option 3: Sugar free crystal sweetenerI usually prefer this option if I am using my sugar free granola with milk. I like this option less if I eat my granola as a snack as the erythritol won't spread as evenly as liquid sweetener above and leave bites of sweetener into the mix. However, I love this option for my breakfast as the sweetener release its sweetness really well into the milk. Freeze dried raspberry replacement: that is your best sugar free fruit but if you can eat some sweet use any dried fruits of your choice like goji berries, cranberries or apricots.Not sugar free? Use regular maple syrup instead of sugar free sweetener, same amount and use any dried fruits you like instead of freeze dried raspberries.
