This has too much calories. One cup of homemade granola is around 597 calories, mind you. Now, to lessen the count, skip the sweets. Even if you use brown sugar, that is still high on calories. Instead of tossing that in, you can always add cinnamon and other spices to create a delicious flavor. If you really need the sugar, the sugar-free maple syrup might do – still, don’t forget to limit it.
