Oil-Free Granola

Although granola has a healthy image, many granolas are actually full of sugar and oil. This granola is perfect for individuals on low-fat diets, it contains no added fats and still tastes great (thanks to the coconut and almond butter). You can also substitute or add in you favorite nuts or dried fruits to suit your taste.
