Ingredients

  • 4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cups chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup pecan halves
  • ½ cup sliced or slivered almonds
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoons sea salt
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup almond butter
  • finely grated zest of ½ orange optional
  • 1 egg white

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300°F.
  • In a large bowl combine oats, nuts, cinnamon, and salt.
  • In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine coconut oil, syrup, almond butter, and orange zest until smooth. Set aside for a few minutes to cool down slightly.
  • Pour syrup mixture over oats/nuts and stir really well, until thoroughly combined.
  • In a separate bowl using a fork or whisk, beat the egg white until frothy. Add the egg white to the granola and stir until combined. Spread the granola into an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Toss with a spatula then press the mixture with the back of the spatula to flatten it slightly (this will help create clumps), return to the oven for another 15-25 minutes until the granola is golden brown.
  • Cool completely before breaking into pieces. You must let it cool for several hours if you want some of the granola to clump together. If you don't care about clumps you can dive in right away.

Notes

This is a lightly sweetened granola. If you'd prefer it sweeter you can increase the amount of maple syrup in the recipe or you can serve the granola with a drizzle of maple syrup or honey.
