Sweet and Tart Granola
Use pistachios and sunflower seeds in the base. After baking, stir in dried cherries and 1/2 cup toasted unsweetened coconut.
Use sliced almonds and pepitas in the base. After baking, Stir in 1/2 cup crispy rice cereal and dried currants.
Use macadamia nuts in the base and 3/4 teaspoon dried ginger. Add molasses as the sweetener. After baking, stir in 3/4 cup chopped dried pineapple, 1/4 cup chopped crystallized ginger, and 1/2 cup toasted unsweetened coconut.
Leave out the egg whites. The granola won't be quite as crunchy, but it will still be very tasty.
