Ingredients

  • 4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1-1/2 cups raw walnuts, chopped (can substitute with fresh pecans or almonds)
  • 1 tsp ground ginger powder
  • 1/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 1/4 cup Sunflower, Safflower or Canola oil
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar or maple syrup
  • 2 egg whites, whipped until light and frothy
  • 1 cup crystallized ginger, finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  2. Combine oats, chopped nuts, ground ginger and Sea salt in a large bowl. Toss well with hands or silicone spatula until ingredients are mixed. Pour oil into the bowl. Pour agave nectar into the bowl. Mix well with spatula until ingredients are incorporated.
  3. Add whipped egg whites to bowl and toss mixture to coat.
  4. Spread granola onto a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes. Make sure to toss granola every 8-10 minutes during the baking process to evenly cook.
  5. Remove from oven and sprinkle crystallized ginger over the hot granola. Stir quickly then allow granola to cool completely for several hours.
  6. Store in clear airtight container for easy and protein-packed snack. (Add other seeds for tasty fun like Pumpkin seeds or Sunflower seeds-both packed with great health!)
