Nutty Granola

This is one of my favourite Sunday meal prep recipes.  It’s one that must be made when feeling a great level of self-control because this stuff is good, crazy-addictive good.

Nutty Granola one of the easiest recipes to make and is an excellent source of fats.  You can eat this on its own, with milk, or I am a fan pairing it with greek yoghurt and a sprinkle of fruit (as pictured above).

  • Whisk together coconut oil, egg white, and syrup
  • Mix all ingredients together evenly
