Nutty Breakfast Granola from Everyday Healthy

A high-protein, low-granola that is packed with nutrients. Served with some Greek yoghurt and mixed berries this nutty granola will offer slow releasing energy throughout the morning and stave off sugar cravings until lunchtime. The addition of egg whites produces delicious crunchy granola clusters as well as increases the protein content. 


250g jumbo whole rolled oats
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1-2 tbsp maple syrup, to taste
50-100g mixed seeds (sunflower, pumpkin, sesame)
100-140g mixed nuts (flaked almonds, pecans, walnuts, pistachios)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 eggs whites
To serve: dried dates, apricots, cranberries 

Preheat the oven to 170C. 

Pour the melted coconut oil onto a large baking tray. Add the maple syrup and stir in the oats, cinnamon and mixed seeds and give everything a stir.  

Whisk the eggs whites in a separate bowl until stiff peaks are formed. Stir this through the oats until combined. Place in the oven for about 15 minutes. Give everything a stir and then add the nuts. Place back in the oven for a further 15 minutes until the nuts are browned and the granola is crispy. 

Remove from the oven and add any additional dried fruit or flavourings of your choice.  This will keep in a jar or tupperware for 3-4 weeks (if it lasts that long!)
