Cook Time: 45 mins.

 

Ingredients:

60g almonds

60g pecans

40g sunflower seeds

30g pumpkin seeds

60g chia seeds

30g sesame seeds

30g erythritol-based sweetener

1 pinch cinnamon

1 egg white

1 pinch sea salt

 

Method:

  • Preheat the oven to 120°C
  • Combine the almonds (approx. ½ cup), pecans (approx. ½ cup), sunflower seeds (approx. ¾ cup), pumpkin seeds (approx. ¼ cup) and chia (approx. ¼ cup) in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  • In a heavy-based frying pan, lightly toast the sesame seeds (approx. 3 tb) over a medium-low heat for 3-4 minutes. Keep them moving so they don’t burn!
  • Add the toasted sesame seeds, sweetener (approx. 2 ½ tb) and cinnamon to a food processor and pulse until powdered.
  • Beat egg white with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, then fold through the nut mix.
  • Pour the sesame-sweetener mix over the nuts and stir until evenly coated.
  • Line a baking tray with paper and spread the granola evenly over it. Sprinkle with a little sea salt and cook for 45-50 minutes.
  • Leave to cool, as it will continue to harden up over time, then break into pieces and store in a container.
