One of my favorite snacks with yogurt, milk, or ice cream. Very healthy and can be made diabetic-friendly.

  • Mix oats, wheat germ, oat bran, almonds, flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, and salt together in a bowl. Beat maple syrup and egg white together in a separate bowl; pour into the oat mixture and stir to coat completely. Spread the mixture onto prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven, rotating pans every 20 minutes, for 90 minutes. Increase heat to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C) and continue baking until golden brown, about 30 minutes more.

  • Transfer the oat mixture to a large bowl, add coconut and cranberries, and stir. Let granola cool to room temperature.

Tips

Cook's Note:

To make this diabetic friendly, substitute maple syrup with agave or sugar-free pancake syrup.

Adding other spices and maybe chocolate makes this a great holiday gift as well.

You can use whole flaxseed in place of the ground.

Wheat bran can replace the oat bran, if preferred.

Raisins can replace cranberries, if preferred.
