prep: 10 mins
cook : 25 mins
Keeps for 1 month in an airtight container
300g rolled oats
50g sesame seeds / linseeds/ chia seeds or a mix
2 tsp cinnamon powder
50g medjool dates chopped
50g dried apricots chopped
100g dried berries (from supermarket baking aisle)
3 egg whites
50g pumpkin seeds
100g flaked almonds
line a baking sheet, and heat the oven to 160° fan.
Beat the egg whites into soft peaks.
Put all the dry ingredients into a bowl with the cinnamon powder and mix.
Fold in the beaten egg whites and make sure the mix is completely covered.
Pour into the baking sheet. Allow the mix to be a little crowded in the pan to make sure they clump together, but don't layer too thickly - you still want the Granola to cook through to be crunchy.
Press down gently with the back of the spoon.
Bake for 25 mins or until the granola is slightly golden.
Leave to cool and then transfer to container.
**If you really want extra sweetness, drizzle a small amount (1 tsp) of honey on top of your breakfast serving, at least this way you can control the amount of sugar you are adding to the Granola per serving.**
