Who says granola has to be sweet? I decided to skip the fruit and add some herbs and spices and was very pleased with the results! I'd recommend serving it as I did - over plain yogurt, with a drizzle of olive oil, and some chopped cucumber. Yum!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Mix oats, cashews, almonds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, wheat germ, olive oil, honey, maple syrup, sesame seeds, salt, thyme, oregano, and red pepper flakes together in a large bowl.

  • Whisk egg white in a small bowl until frothy. Stir into granola mixture. Spread on the prepared baking sheet in a single layer.

  • Bake until fragrant, about 15 minutes. Turn over sections of the granola using a flat spatula, trying to keep large clusters intact. Bake until evenly browned and dry to the touch, about 10 minutes more.

  • Place baking sheet on a wire rack; let granola cool completely. Break up into clusters and transfer to an airtight container.

Cook's Note:

I recommend measuring the honey and maple syrup right after measuring the oil, because they won't get stuck to the greased spoon!
