These granola bites are the perfect combination of sweet and crunch. This same recipe can also be used to make granola as well.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups pecans pieces
  • 2 cups almonds sliced
  • 2 cups coconut shredded or flaked - unsweetened
  • 1 1/2 cups pepitas (pumpkin seeds) - shelled
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp coconut oil melted
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 1/3 cup coconut sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 ℉.
  • Mix together dry ingredients and coconut oil in a large bowl: pecans, almonds, coconut, pepitas, oats, salt (and coconut oil). Spread on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Bake 10 minutes. Then let cool.
  • Whisk egg whites in a large bowl until foamy. Gradually add the coconut sugar while continuing to whisk.
  • Add the two (wet and dry) mixtures together. (It doesn't matter which you add to the other.) Stir until well incorporated.
  • Use a tablespoon or a cookie scoop to drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Space them evenly. You can place your 'cookies' pretty close to one another. They will not spread much. 
  • Bake 15-20 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. [They will get crispier as they cool.]

Notes

You can bake this mixture into pretty much any loosely structured shape...or no shape at all. If you want to make granola, simply spread the mixture in a thin layer on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Cook until golden brown. Crack it into pieces when cool.
