Scale

Ingredients

  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 3 cups toasted O cereal
  • 1 cup dried fruit ((I use raisins, dried cranberries, and dried cherries))
  • 1 cup walnut ((bit size pieces, optional))
  • ¾ cup wheat germ
  • ¾ cup flax seed meal
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • ½ cup coconut oil ((melted))
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp coarse sea salt ((optional))
  • 2 large egg whites ((beaten until foamy))

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 320° degrees. Line a large (approx 12 in x19 in ) baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix oats, cereal, dried fruit, walnuts, wheat germ, and flax seed in a large bowl.
  3. In a small bowl combine brown sugar, maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and sea salt. Pour coconut oil mixture over oat mixture.  Mix granola until evenly combined.
  4. Beat the egg white with a whisk until very frothy. Spoon egg whites over the oat mixture and toss to combine.
  5. Pour mixture onto parchment lined baking sheet and spread to evenly distribute.  Press the mixture down lightly.
  6. Bake the granola for 20 minutes, do not stir. Remove granola pan from oven and allow it to cool completely.
  7. Once the granola is cool (you should be able to pick up the pan with your bare hands) use a small spatula or table knife to break the granola into half dollar size pieces.
  8. Store the granola in an airtight container and use within 10 days.
