Healthy Cinnamon and Coconut Granola

I have finally found the answer to all my questions. Cooking questions, that is ;)

It’s egg whites.

They are magical protein filled things that make everything better. Enough said.

For years, I have tried to master healthy granola. But they always turned out dry and gross without all the yummy oil and sugar.

Until now. I just discovered that egg whites hold the granola together and make it super crunchy. And add a protein boost!

So *drumroll please* I present to you…

Healthy Cinnamon and Coconut Granola

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • about 1/4 cup ¬†oil
  • 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • almonds, cranberries, raisins, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, cashews, dried fruit (you pick)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • big pinch of salt
  • shake of cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 325. Mix dry ingredients. In another bowl, mix egg white, oil, honey, and vanilla. Pour over granola. Lay foil or parchment paper on a pan, and spread the granola evenly over it.

Cook for about 30 minutes, checking every now and then. Take out of the oven and LET SIT for 15 minutes. I mean it ;) Patience is key haha. Sitting makes the granola harden and form clusters.

I think I am turning into granola. I have topped anything and everything with it in the last 24 hours- yogurt, cereal, even salads.

On another note, I changed my blog look again! I’m still figuring some things out, though- all these computer codes are making me dizzy! ;)

Have a great day!
