GRAIN-FREE GRANOLA

Crunchy. Salty. Sweet. This granola is free from fruit and processed sugar. Enjoy with your favourite milk or serve with yoghurt and berries. 
      
YIELD: 6-8 cups
    
INGREDIENTS:

3 cups nuts – i.e. pecan, macadamia, peanut, almond
2/3 cup seeds - i.e. chia, flax, hemp
1/2 cup flax seed meal
1/4 cup good quality oil, liquid – i.e. butter, coconut oil or ghee
2 egg whites
4-6 tablespoons sweetener – i.e. erythritol, stevia or monk fruit
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch salt (if nuts are unsalted)
   
METHOD:
1.  Pre-heat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and line two baking trays with baking paper, so the granola will not stick to the trays.
2.  Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, mixing well.
3.  Spread mixture evenly onto the lined baking trays, about 5mm thick.
4.  Bake for 15 minutes at 180°C (350°F) or until light brown.
5.  Cool granola on the trays.
6.  Pour cooled granola into a jar or container, breaking into pieces if desired.
7.  Store in on the bench or in the pantry for up to 2 weeks, or refrigerate for consumption within 4 weeks (or freeze for up to 3 months, especially helpful if you’ve made a larger batch).
