It seems like ages since I’ve posted a new granola recipe, doesn’t it?  Well, that’s kind of because I went off granola for a while, knowing that most of my granola required some sort of sweetener in it, and that I was trying to avoid added sugars.  But then I got to thinking, and realized that I could still make granola out of my homemade trail mix, use a bit more nut butter to hold it together, and some egg whites to add more protein in my breakfast.  And hence, this recipe for egg white granola was made.

Totally Paleo-friendly – no grains, dairy or gluten in here.  And because I’ve gotten used to not having that many sweet things I’m fine with not having any honey or maple syrup with this.  But, if you prefer something slightly sweeter than just the fruit sweetness in here, please feel free to add whatever sweetener you wish!

The egg whites add a totally different texture to this granola.  It’s kind of crunchy but chewy, all at the same time.  I bought some liquid egg whites from Costco, in order to make my chocolate crackle cookies on a regular basis, but didn’t make as many cookies as I thought.  So I had some egg whites leftover and used them to make this granola many times.  But if you don’t have liquid egg whites, just use 2 large egg whites instead of the 1/4 cup of liquid egg whites.

So I present to you – egg white granola … suitable for any breakfast, snack or any other meal at all!
