On Friday, I got home from school earlier than usual because a teacher was sick. Once I got home, I was in the mood to do some experimenting in the kitchen and came up with protein granola! I made 3 batches so far, and ate them all because I just couldn’t get enough!
Protein Granola (1 Serving)
- 1/3 cup quick oats
- 3 tablespoons rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon flaxseed (optional)
- 2 tablespoons puffed amaranth (optional)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Stevia OR 1 teaspoon sugar/honey
- 1 teaspoon chopped nuts (optional)
- 2 egg whites
1.) Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Put some baking paper on a cookie sheet.
2.) Put all the DRY ingredients into a small bowl.
3.) Then add the two egg whites.
4.) Use a spoon or a fork to mix well.
5.) Put your mixture onto the cookie sheet, that is covered with baking paper.
6.) This is the messy part. Use your hands to crumble up the mixture evenly on the baking paper. Crumble up the big pieces into smaller pieces.
7.) Put it in the oven and let it bake for 20 min. When the time is up, let the granola cool on the baking paper before putting into a container.
