Almond Coconut Granola Cereal


I usually like my granola in bar form, but sometimes I crave a cereal version.  These crunchy, chunks of granola do make a tasty little snack all on their own though.  I found myself nibbling on a handful when the munchies hit.  The toasted coconut...it calls to me. 

Not a ton of sugar in this recipe...I wasn't keen on tossing in a bunch of oil or butter either.  Simple and delicious was the goal.


Almond Coconut Granola Cereal

3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup oat bran
1 tbls wheat germ
1/4 cup shredded sweetened coconut
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbls raw honey
1 egg white

Mix together all the dry ingredients.  In a small bowl, beat the egg white lightly.  Stir in honey.  Pour the honey mixture over the dry ingredients and toss together.  Pour onto a greased cooking sheet and bake at 325 for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Serves two.

  22. I haven't seen a granola bound with an egg white instead of oil. I am definitely going to have to try this out. It's a great combination of ingredients.
