Grain-free Granola

Ingredients:

1/2 cup sliced almonds + 2 Tbsp whole almonds roughly chopped

1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup walnuts coarsely chopped

1/4 cup flaxseed meal

1/4 cup almond meal

1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

1/4 cup canned pumpkin

1/4 chopped dates (could use dried cranberries instead)

1/4 cup egg whites

1 Tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

Method:

1. Preheat oven to 325 F.

2. In a large bowl, mix all of the ingredients above until thoroughly combined. Spread onto a large baking sheet lined with foil (use a cooking spray or coconut oil to grease the foil so that the granola doesn’t stick).

3. Spread mixture onto the foil and bake for 18-20 minutes, removing once to stir at 10 minutes. Check the granola periodically after 15 minutes to prevent burning.

4. Allow to cool completely before storing in a jar/tupperware container in the fridge (maintains crispness).

Makes about 11-12 1/4 cup servings, about 130-140 calories each (Total calories for recipe = 1520)

Topping ideas: sliced berries, bananas, coconut or almond milk, or yogurt!
