A homemade spicy granola recipe has great potential to solve most of the morning hassles. The super easy, oil-less, butterless homemade granola recipe is delicious and can be highly customizable to your individual preferences.
In this spicy granola recipe, we are adding egg whites to make them stay crispy forever. After the grand success, I often make them 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. Bake it at 300°F for about 35-45 minutes or until the oats turn golden brown and cook thoroughly.
7. Add the dry fruits once the oats cooled down completely. And store them in air-tight jars for future usage.
