Protein Packed Granola

I’ve been making my own granola because I haven’t been able to find my favorite protein bars. I have approximate macros if anyone is interested. This is just what I made for a “big batch”

1/2 c pecan chips (I buy them already minced)

1/2 c unsweetened, flaked coconut

1 c rolled oats

1/4 c dried cranberries

1/3 c dark chocolate chips

1/4 c protein powder (I’ve used both chocolate and vanilla, vegan and whey…any kind or flavor works

1/4 c coconut oil, melted and cooled

1/4 c egg whites

1 tsp local honey

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease a medium sheet pan.

In a dry pan, toast pecans, then coconut, then oats. Combine in a bowl and set aside.

Combine cranberries and chocolate chips in a small separate bowl and set aside.

In another bowl, combine protein powder, coconut oil, egg whites, and honey. Whisk until completely smooth.

Pour liquid mixture over oat mixture and combine well. Press into sheet pan. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool completely.

Break into clusters (whatever size you prefer and mix with chocolate chips and cranberries.

Store in an airtight container.

Makes approximately six 50 g portions.
