Vanilla Walnut Granola

The secret to a cluster-y granola?  Add an egg white!  This granola is sure to be your new favorite go-to and is easy to alter based on whatever nuts/seeds/dried fruits you have.  I also have played with using liquid stevia vs. maple syrup to make completely free of sugar.  I like to add brazil nuts as they are packed with selenium-a potent antioxidant that many of us are deficient in and can also help boost thyroid function!


What you need:

  • 2 cups Gluten Free Old Fashioned Oats (I love GF Harvest brand)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3-4 T shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped organic walnuts and cashews
  • 4 chopped organic brazil nuts
  • 2 T pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup organic raisins
  • 2 T organic coconut oil melted
  • 3-4 T maple syrup
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract (gluten free)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

How you do it:

  1. Preheat oven to 300
  2. Whisk coconut oil, maple syrup, egg white, vanilla, salt together in a large bowl
  3. Combine oats, cinnamon, nuts, seeds, dried fruits in a separate bowl
  4. Pour wet over dry ingredients and combine
  5. Pour granola mixture onto a parchment lined baking sheet and form into a large donut shape (there should be a hole in the middle and the granola mix should form a large circle)
  6. Bake ~25 minutes or until golden; this will make your home smell amazing!

GFG Enjoy! Signature


Tip: Store in an airtight container such as a mason jar for up to a week.  I enjoy topped on chia seed pudding or unsweetened dairy free yogurt.
