Healthy Granola

Oh sweet granola – how I love you! I don’t know what it is about you? The crunch, the flavour or the nuts? Who knows? but I do love this calorific little snack at all times of the day. That being said, these little handfuls do add up and sometimes in the realm of 500 calories per serve – yikes!

Damn you sweet crunchiness! I thought long and hard about this sacrifice and I came to the conclusion – I’m not ready to give you up!

Being a total believer in BALANCE the best next thing I could do is go away and come up with a ‘healthier’ version of this delicious snack.

And here it is to share with you:

An easy, healthy and quick recipe for maple granola full of pecans, coconut & crunchy clusters! No oil or refined sugar - only 140cals per serve and only 8 ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 60 ml pure maple syrup
  • 60g puffed brown rice
  • 150g old-fashioned oats
  • A handful of crushed pecans
  • A handful of coconut flakes

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 160c and line a large tin with parchment paper.

2

In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites, cinnamon, and vanilla extract until the egg whites are broken up and slightly bubbly.

3

Stir in the maple syrup. Pour in the puffed rice and oats, and gently stir with a spatula until both cereals are evenly coated. Spread the mixture evenly onto the prepared pan. Bake for 10- 20 minutes checking to stop burning.

4

Gently stir and move the clusters around the pan to break up the granola and prevent the bits closest to the edge from burning.

5

Add pecans and or coconut flakes (or whatever you want to add)

6

Bake for an additional 5-9 minutes, or until the granola is golden and crunchy.

7

Cool the granola completely to room temperature before transferring to an airtight container.
