The VVR Granola is one of my favorites. Mixed with some fresh berries and yogurt….what a great way to start the day! Ben might disagree with me and opt for bacon, potatoes, and eggs, but if you’re looking for a little bit of a lighter breakfast–give this one a try!
Makes about 6 cups
5 cups rolled oats
1 ½ cups nuts (your favorite!)
¾ cups egg whites
6 Tablespoons honey or maple syrup
¼ cup wheat germ
¼ cup flax seed
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 ½ teaspoon salt
2 cups dried fruit (we use blueberries)
- Combine egg whites, sweetener, wheat germ, flax seed, vanilla and salt in a large bowl and whip until frothy. Add the oats and nuts and combine until well coated. Spread onto a sheet pan and bake at 325 degrees F. for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes.
- Remove from oven and cool completely.
- After cooled, stir in dried fruit.
- Can keep up to two weeks in an air tight container.
