Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats (120 grams)
  • 1/2 cup slivered or sliced almonds (60 grams)
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 1/4 cup walnuts or pumpkin seeds Use any nut or seed you want here
  • 2 teaspoons of toasted wheat germ or 2 tablespoons ground flax (I've been using 2 T. flax lately rather than the 2 teaspoons wheat germ).
  • 3/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg white medium, lightly beaten with a fork
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar (36 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup (40 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (20 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons oil,walnut oil, coconut oil, any kind you want (26 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

  • Preheat the convection oven to 275 degrees F. Line a heavy, large rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the rolled oats, almonds, pecans, walnuts and wheat germ. Toss in salt and stir to evenly disperse salt.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy then stir in brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, oil and vanilla. Mix well and toss with the oat mixture.
  • Spread oat mixture onto the baking sheet, spreading as evenly as possible and pressing down slightly so that oats are in a thin, closely packed layer.
  • Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in the convection oven stopping to stir every 15 minutes. The granola should be nicely browned, but still kind of soft when you take it out of the oven. It should crisp up as it cools.
  • Makes about 2 1/2 cups

Notes

Granola Bark Variation: To make bark, use 1/4 cup of ground flax in place of the 2 tablespoons.  Also, add 1 tablespoon of water in with the wet ingredients.  Press the granola down flat on the baking sheet, then put a layer of parchment over it.  Set a second baking sheet over the parchment.  Bake at 300 degrees F for 45 minutes with the second baking sheet nestled on top.  Halfway through baking, lift up the second sheet.  If the granola is pretty brown, continue baking covered with the sheet.  If the granola is not brown enough, continue baking without the sheet.  Remove from oven and let cool completely.  Break into large chunks.
