Ingredients

  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup chopped or sliced almonds or whatever nuts you like
  • 2 Tablespoons ground flax
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 egg whites

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Prepare two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, almonds, flax meal, chia seeds, and spices.
  • In a smaller microwave-safe bowl, combine honey and oil. Heat for 15 seconds and stir to combine well. Add to dry mixture and mix well to coat.
  • In a small bowl, whisk egg whites until foamy. Stir whites into granola mixture, folding to coat.
  • Evenly distribute mixture between the two baking sheets, spreading evenly. Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking to prevent edges from burning (*it is also a good idea to switch racks halfway through).
  • Allow mixture to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
