  • 1 Egg White Whipped Until Frothy
  • 3 Cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 3/4 Cup Sliced Almonds (Walnuts or pecans work well, too)
  • ½ Chopped Banana Chips
  • 2 TBS Ground Flaxseed
  • 1/3 Cup Honey
  • 1 Heaping tsp Orange Zest
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 3 TBS Vegetable or Canola Oil
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F, and line a large sheet pan with foil, parchment, or a silicone mat.

  2. In a bowl, whip one egg white until frothy. Set aside.

  3. In a large bowl, combine the oats, almonds, banana chips, and ground flaxseed.
  4. In another bowl, mix together the honey, orange zest, oil, vanilla, cinnamon and salt.

  5. Pour the honey and orange mixture over the oats mixture, and stir to coat. Lastly, add the frothed egg white to the oats, and stir again to coat. This is what will help your granola clump up!

  6. Pour the granola mixture onto the lined baking sheet. Press on it gently to spread it out into a thin layer.

  7. Bake the granola at 300 F for 30 minutes. Once toasted and golden, remove it from the oven, and allow it to cool on the pan for at least 10 minutes. Once cooled, break up the mixture with a spoon or spatula. Enjoy with milk, yogurt, over ice cream, or by itself!

Recipe Notes

This recipe is very gently sweetened with honey. The banana chips, orange zest, and vanilla add a little bit of extra sweetness. If you want your granola to be sweeter, feel free to add an extra tablespoon or two to the mixture or just drizzle some extra honey over top when serving. Enjoy!
