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
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).
