Serve this easy-to-make and customizable granola with yogurt and fresh fruit for a delicious breakfast or snack treat.
This has become one my family’s favorite weekday breakfast treats. It is so easy to make, and you can customize it to satisfy your taste buds — you can add different combinations of nuts and seeds, different spices, or try honey instead of maple syrup. The egg whites are added to make the oats clump together to form crunchy clusters. If you want to make this a vegan recipe, you can leave the egg whites out and it still turns out delicious and crunchy.
We like to serve it for breakfast with kefir, yogurt, or almond milk along with fresh seasonal fruit. It also can be a yummy snack made as a parfait, layered with different-colored fruit and plain yogurt, or as a dessert with apples and cinnamon cooked together and granola sprinkled on top! Kids can make this mostly on their own (parents only really need to help with the hot pan and stirring). It also makes a great gift for kids’ teachers, colleagues, family, and neighbors. It stays fresh at least 3 weeks if stored in a tight-sealed glass container, such as a Mason jar. Enjoy!
