Ingredients

A whisked egg white helps the granola clump together.

Macadamia nuts are a little sweet, slightly creamy and a little buttery. In addition, they are a healthy fat.

Almonds are crispy, crunchy and they are the perfect addition to this macadamia nut granola.

Coconut flakes add a little sweetness.

Loaded with vitamins and minerals, pecans add a pop of crunch to the granola.

Chia seeds are packed with antioxidants and have become known as a super food. Additionally, these seeds help bind the granola together.

Flax seeds have a myriad of health benefits. They’re a popular super food.

Maple syrup is a common Paleo liquid sweetener. In this case, its sticky nature helps create those sought after chunks of granola.

The vanilla extract adds just enough flavor!

Use refined coconut oil for no flavor, or unrefined for a slight coconut flavor. In addition, use room temperature coconut for this recipe.

A little bit of cinnamon goes a long way in flavoring this granola.

Totally optional. If many of the nuts you use are already salted, feel free to skip.
