Recipe of the Week: Honey-Vanilla Granola Clusters

By
Recipe of the Week: Honey-Vanilla Granola Clusters

Think vanilla is boring? If so, the cookbook Pure Vanilla: Irresistible Recipes and Essential Techniques will set you straight.

It has chapters devoted to vanilla breakfasts, cakes, cookies, candies, custards, and drinks – plus a little history on this mellow spice, which is all too often taken for granted. pure-vanilla-cookbook

Granola can go a lot of ways flavor-wise, but this simple recipe is a fast favorite. Give it a go and you’ll see what I mean. 🙂

Serves 12 / Makes about 4 cups

Ingredients

2 large egg whites, at room temperature

1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed

1/4 cup mild clover honey

1/4 cup sunflower oil

1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract

3 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats

Instructions

1. Position a rack in the center of the oven, and preheat to 325°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg whites, brown sugar, honey, oil, and vanilla extract until smooth. Add oats, and stir to coat evenly. Spread mixture onto prepared sheet in an even layer.

3. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden and fragrant, stirring once or twice. Rotate pan 180 degrees halfway through baking to prevent burning. Transfer baking sheet to a wire rack, and let granola cool on the sheet. To get nice, big clusters, let the granola cool completely in one mass before breaking it into chunks. Store in an airtight container. Tip: If you like, add your favorite nuts and seeds during the last 5 minutes of baking.

I'm Mike and I'm the creator of Muscle for Life and Legion Athletics, and I believe that EVERYONE can achieve the body of their dreams.

If you like what I have to say, sign up for my free newsletter and every week I'll send you awesome, science-based health and fitness tips, delicious "diet-friendly" recipes, motivational musings, and more.

OVER 100,000 PEOPLE HAVE USED MY COOKBOOK TO GET THE BODY THEY WANT EATING THE FOODS THEY LOVE. WILL YOU BE NEXT?

What if I told you that just about everything magazines and trainers “teach” you about dieting is wrong?

What if you could build muscle and lose fat eating “naughty” foods every week?

What if you didn’t have to suffer through low-carb dieting to get lean? In fact, what if you could eat all the carbs you wanted?

And what if you didn’t have to gorge yourself just to gain muscle and didn’t have to put on pounds and pounds of ugly fat, either?

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.

And imagine finally understanding how proper dieting really works, never again falling for the BS, tricks, and gimmicks pushed by “gurus” and other shysters.

Well, I have good news.

All these “fantasies” can be a reality...if you know how to do a handful of “little” things correctly.

You see, when you know how to diet properly--and this doesn’t mean learning to eat boiled chicken and raw broccoli six times per day--getting lean and muscular becomes simple, convenient, and dare I say...enjoyable.

And this book will show you the way.

  • Awesome, awesome, awesome recipe! You’ve brought homemade granola back into my life. Thank you!!
    Followed the recipe exactly for my first go. Next I’ll add more oats to try to increase serving sizes while keeping fat low. Maybe some pumpkin and quinoa ala http://www.skinnytaste.com/2012/09/easy-pumpkin-spiced-granola.html. This might just become my staple breakfast.
