Equipment

  • Baking tray

Ingredients

  • 1 cup 100g walnuts halves
  • 1 cup 150g whole almonds
  • ½ cup 70g pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup 35g sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 egg whites (from large eggs)
  • 1-2 tablespoon granulated sweetener depends on how sweet you want your granola to be
  • 1 tablespoon protein powder
  • 4 tablespoon smooth peanut butter unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Toppings

  • Freeze-dried raspberries or strawberries optional
  • Coconut flakes optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300F (150C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the almonds in a food processor and pulse 3-4 times for a few seconds until there are fine crumbs mixed with bigger pieces. Remove the mixture into a large mixing bowl. Repeat the process with the walnuts, pumpkin, and sunflower seeds.
  • Add the chia and sesame seeds to the same mixing bowl and mix everything to combine.
  • In the small mixing bowl, combine the egg whites, peanut butter, sweetener, salt, vanilla, and protein powder. Pour into the nut and seed mixture and mix well.
  • Place the mixture onto the baking sheet and spread evenly, pressing with a rubber spatula until one big, even slab is formed. (Bonnie, is to call it a slab even a thing?:)
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until toasty.
  • Remove from the oven and let it cool completely. Then, break the slab into pieces and top with dehydrated raspberries, strawberries, or coconut flakes, if desired. Serve with full-fat yogurt, cottage cheese, or whole milk.
