Maple Nut Granola Clusters are a sweet treat made with pure maple syrup. They are a fun alternative to store bought candy and that make healthy Halloween treats. DIY Edible Chocolate Eyeballs & free printable Halloween Goodie Bag Toppers turn them into granola monsters.
- 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))
- Preheat oven to 320° degrees. Line a large (approx 12 in x19 in ) baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Mix oats, cereal, dried fruit, walnuts, wheat germ, and flax seed in a large bowl.
- 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.
- Beat the egg white with a whisk until very frothy. Spoon egg whites over the oat mixture and toss to combine.
- Pour mixture onto parchment lined baking sheet and spread to evenly distribute. Press the mixture down lightly.
- Bake the granola for 20 minutes, do not stir. Remove granola pan from oven and allow it to cool completely.
- 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.
- Store the granola in an airtight container and use within 10 days.
