Homemade spicy granola recipe has great potential in solving most of the morning hassles. The super easy oil less, butter less homemade granola recipe is healthier, can be highly customizable to your individual preferences.
I try to start a day with minimized sins, I doubt who else in the world wish to start with tons of cooking oil infused breakfast. You might have already heard zillions of times hearing your doctor saying about good and bad cholesterol. I do not wish to reprint the same, but still, want to write that cholesterol from nuts are good for the body whereas the fat from oil is not.
This spicy granola recipe does not require any bad cholesterol, We are adding egg whites to make them stay crispy forever. After the grand success, I make them quite often, with different variations. You can also kick start your imaginations for your favorite variations.
How to make spicy granola
1. In a baking tray, add old fashioned oats/ rolled oats.
2. Add nuts to the oats. Add natural sugar like maple syrup.
3. Add vanilla extract to the mixture.
4. Separate the egg white and whisk it until it becomes frothy.
5. Add the fluffed up egg white to the oats and syrup mixture.
6. Combine them gently with a wooden spatula. And bake it at 300°F for about 35-45 minutes or until the oats turn golden brown and cooked completely.
7. Add the dry fruits once oats cooled down completely. And store them in air tight jars for future usages.
