A Better Granola

Today, I am sharing a recipe with you from my family's food blog, Delicious Dale's.  I have 8 sisters-in-law and one fantastic mother-in-law, and they are all the BEST cooks! Try out this granola recipe my mother in law found in Bon Appetit Magazine.

  • Preheat oven to 300°. Combine 1 large beaten egg white, 3 cups old-fashioned oats, 1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (such as almonds, pistachios, pecans, or walnuts), 1 1/2 cups coconut shavings, 1/2 cup agave syrup, 1/4 cup olive oil or warmed coconut oil, 1/4 cup sesame seeds, 2 tablespoons (packed) light brown sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, and 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon in a large bowl; toss to combine. Spread out on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake granola, stirring every 10 minutes, until golden brown and dry, 40-45 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet (it will crisp as it cools).
  • Mix in 1 cup dried cherries or cranberries. DO AHEAD: Granola can be made 2 weeks ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.
  • Coconut shavings (chips) are strips of unsweetened coconut and are available at many natural foods stores and some supermarkets.
Customize it
  • Swap maple syrup or honey for the agave to get a subtle flavor shift.
  • If chocolate chips mean your kid will love it, throw ‘em in at the end.
This granola's great out of hand, but for added protein, serve over low-fat yogurt. Or layer it in a glass with yogurt and fresh fruit.
