Large Cluster Granola
Large Cluster Granola - Don't pay those outrageous retail prices for granola. Make your own, it's so much better!
- 3 cups Rolled Oats (Old Fashioned not Quick)
- 1/2 cup Pepitas
- 1/2 cup Dried Cranberries
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon
- 1/2 cup Honey
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1/3 cup Oil (vegetable or canola)
- 2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
- 1 Egg white, beaten until slightly foamy
Preheat oven to 325 degrees and prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper or grease the pan. (One with a raised edge)
In a large bowl combine oats, nuts, salt, and cinnamon. In another bowl whisk together honey, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla.
Pour the wet mixture over the oats mixture and stir to coat well. Beat the egg white in a separate bowl and pour over the mixture. Mix to coat evenly with the egg white.
Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet in an even layer and bake 20-30 minutes until the granola is uniformly golden and no longer moist.
Start watching it closely at about 15 minutes, you don't want to let it get too brown or burn.
Allow to cool completely (the granola will crisp a little more as it cools.)
Once cooled break into large chunks and store granola in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks. (ours never lasts that long)
