Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup roasted peanuts
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dried pineapple, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried mango, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons raisins

Instructions

  • In a blender or food processor, pulse 1/2 cup of the rolled oats into a fine powder.
  • In a bowl, combine with the powder with the remaining 2 1/2 cups rolled oats, shredded coconut, peanuts, brown sugar, and salt. Toss to combine.
  • In a bowl, whisk egg white until frothy and add to oats mixture. 
  • Add honey, oil, and vanilla extract. Toss until evenly distributed.
  • On a parchment-lined baking sheet, transfer granola mixture and spread evenly. 
  • Bake in a 275 F oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly golden but still slightly soft. Halfway through cooking time, turn the baking pan halfway for even browning. If using a dark baking sheet, you may need to cut cook time as they tend to brown foods more rapidly.
  • Remove granola from oven and allow to cool completely. Break into desired clusters. 
  • In a large bowl, combine oat clusters with dried pineapples, mangoes, and raisins. Store in an airtight container.
