berry crumble granola (low-fat granola for weight loss)

written by Nina Shantel, blog:, published September 20, 2022

This low-fat, plant-based, oil-free, no-bake, vegan berry crumble recipe takes a few minutes to assemble so you can eat it right away. I wasn’t sure if I should call this recipe “berry crumble” or “granola.”  It’s a guilt-free breakfast or snack that’s low in fat and helps with fat loss.

In the video below I added lemon juice to the blueberries, but after trying it a few times with lemon juice and a few times without lemon juice, I think it’s better without it.


¾ cup toasted oats, right out of the canister

2-3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 cup mixed berries (blueberries, raspberries, cherries, blackberries, etc.)

1 T or more of Balsamic vinegar

Toppings: Raw walnuts, toasted pecans, chocolate chips (optional)


Pour the oats into a soup bowl, add cinnamon, and mix together with a soup spoon. Add berries to the oat mixture, and mix again. If too dry, add more berries. If too moist, add 2-4 tablespoons of oats. Drizzle balsamic vinegar on top and mix gently, a few times.

Optional toppings: raw walnuts (my top choice), toasted pecans or dairy-free chocolate chips.

Eat right away so the oats don’t turn soggy. Some oats will be crispy while others should be softer, which is what you want.

Can granola be made without oil?

Granola can be made without oil. Just pour toasted oats right out of the canister, toss with cinnamon, raw walnuts or toasted pecans, and shredded coconut. Right before consuming, add berries and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
