Healthy Granola

Have you looked at the sugar content of granola? Wow! Same with dehydrated fruits, even when organic. So much added sugar! Something that is often portrayed to be healthy can only be partially so if it contains all that sugar and fat…So I started out to do my own, more acceptable for a diabetic or for those suffering from inflammation. So we purchased a Ninja Airfryer which has multiple functions from baking to dehydrating via toasting and much more. So here we go:


  • 2 cups of organic oats
  • 1/2 cup of organic coconut flakes
  • 1/4 cup of organic cashews
  • 1/4 cup of almond slices
  • 1/4 cup of walnuts
  • 1/4 cup of organic coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup of (sugar free) maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup of paleo seeds
  • 3 dehydrated pears


  • Start by washing the pears and slicing them into thin slices. I bought small pears as they would be easier to incorporate into the granola.
  • Place the slices side by side into the dehydrator. I use a Ninja flip airfryer for this purpose and after 2 hours at 65 degree C they were pretty much done.
  • Mix all the ingredients and put them on parchment paper in your airfryer or oven. Bake at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes, then go over to dehydrate at 65 degrees C for an hour.
  • A lovely granola will be yours for breakfast. Serve it with a plant based milk for thorough enjoyment. And stop buying those heavily sugared granolas in the shops!
