This is the only granola recipe you need. While some recipes are too sweet and others don't bind into those super-satisfying clusters, our approach solves for these snafus and also allows for improvisation: You can swap in any nuts, seeds, or dried fruit you have handy, and adjust so yours is higher in protein or lower in sugar.
For a speedy transfer, break up big chunks with a spatula, pinch and lift opposite ends of the parchment, and funnel the granola into a jar.
For more protein and less sugar: Use 1⁄3 cup brown sugar; fold in 1 whisked egg white and 3⁄4 cup unsweetened flaked coconut (for flavor) before spreading onto sheet.

Delicious! It's a bit time consuming but it's great to know what is actually in your cereal. I left out the oil, flax see, and wheat germ because it was not available in the grocery, and it didn't seem to make a difference. I also reduced the oven temp and cooked it a little slower to achieve a golden brown without over-toasting. This is a great recipe and I highly recommend it!
