High Protein Granola
Updated: Oct 9, 2019
I am all about a good healthy granola. Unfortunately, Granola is typically high carb/ sugar and low protein...so high glycemic. I decided to create a low glycemic granola recipe that can be enjoyed solo, as cereal with unsweetened almond milk, as a yogurt mix in, and as a snack with berries. This was super easy and great to keep for the entire week for the family to enjoy!
1. Set oven to 325 degrees.
2. Combine liquid egg whites with vanilla, cinnamon, liquid stevia, maple syrup, powdered stevia in the raw, and salt.
3. Mix in protein powder to make a "paste" like mixture. If you use liquid egg whites, it won't be a paste fyi.
4. Crush nuts by using a mallet and ziploc baggie...or just purchase already crushed.
5. Mix nuts, gluten free rolled oats, and paste mixture in a large bowl.
6. Add in shredded coconut and mix well.
7. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray and spread mixture evenly.
8. Bake for 20 minutes and then scrap the granola mixture off the bottom of sheet. Gently move granola chunks around flip pieces in order to get all sides evenly cooked.
9. Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes and sprinkle with additional mixture of cinnamon and stevia if desired.
