Grain-free Baked Granola

I used to eat quite a bit of cereal. Not for breakfast. I was a cereal for dinner type of gal. So, I thought I'd come up with my own variation of a cereal.

This can be eaten in a variety of ways. Trail mix style, with almond milk (or other alternative), toss it in some coconut yogurt...Mmm.

Also, these measurements are not exact. But... pretty close ;)

Grain-free Baked Granola

1 egg white (organic, cage-free)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbls 100% pure maple syrup
Dash of sea salt 
1-1/4 cup almond slivers
1-1/4 cup walnuts (crumbled)
1/2 cup unsweetened organic coconut flakes
2 tbls black chia seeds
1/4 cup seed mix (pumpkin seeds,  sunflower seeds etc-  I used 1/4 cup the Enjoy Life seed mix)
* If you do the above, it has some dried fruit in it, otherwise use 2 tbls seeds and 2 tbls dried fruit
2 chopped dried figs 


In a large mixing bowl, whip the egg white, vanilla, maple syrup and salt until thoroughly combined. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir vigorously. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (I used a cake pan) and spread the granola evenly. Bake at 300 for about 25 minutes.

Allow to cool before you dig in to let the flavors set. I keep mine in the fridge. A word of caution: this is super yummy so make sure you keep in mind that this is all nuts and seeds and dried fruit!

Enjoy ;)
