A tasty way to start the day! I like to add a dollop of a high protein yoghurt with seasonal fruit on top.
1 cup sliced almonds
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/3 cup sesame seeds
2 tablespoons hemp seeds
1 cup flaked coconut
1/4 cup monk fruit sweetener
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of fine sea salt
1/3 cup coconut oil melted
1 egg white , (for a vegan substitute, you can try using a flax egg (1 Tablespoon ground flax seeds + 3 Tablespoons water OR use 3 Tablespoons smooth creamy nut or seed butter)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
In a large bowl, combine all the nuts, seeds, coconut, sweetener, cinnamon & salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, egg white & vanilla extract. Pour over nut/seed mixture and stir until combined. Spread mixture in an even layer on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake at 140C for 25 - 30 minutes or until golden brown, rotating the pan halfway through. (DO not stir granola while baking).
Remove pan from oven and allow granola to cool completely.
Once cool, break granola into clusters, & store in an airtight container.
Serve with toppings of your choice.
