Homemade Walnut Granola
Walnut Granola Clusters
Author: Julia
  1. In a food processor, combine the oats, pepitas, flaked coconut, coconut sugar, salt and cinnamon. Pulse until you have a rough chop but do not pulse until you get a flour.
  2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg white until foamy (but not stiff). Add the water and oil and whisk to combine.
  4. Add the walnuts to the bowl of liquid and using your hands, make sure the walnuts are all completely drenched.
  5. Pour the oat/pepitas mixture into the bowl with the walnuts and use your hands again to coat the oats. The original recipe says not to mix too much or else the oat mixture will fall off of the walnuts, so I heeded this instruction.
  6. You will end up with more of the granola mixture than you need to coat the nuts. This is perfectly wonderful, because it adds little bits of heaven to the granola.
  7. Spread the coated walnuts out on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes, carefully stirring the granola half-way through.
