Glutenfree Granola

I wanted to make a variation on my other recipe Most important meal of the day part II (click for the link!), and I guess I have a new addiction. Oefff I invented a serious problem, this granola is so insanely good that you A. won't stop eating it, B. will never ever wanna buy the supermarket versions anymore so you have to make this again and again!!!

With this recipe you will create a huge pot of home made granola/cruesli, about 800 grams so you will have some portions after a bit of baking;-)

The recipe is full of healthy products, gluten free buckwheat, nuts and seeds, coconut oil and a sugar alternative that is low GI. It's 100% pure, 100% good for you and100% delicious. What more do you want?

Oh and time wise, it doesn't take that long. You need about 15 minutes for preparing the granola/cruesli, just about the time your oven is heating up. Than it needs 30 minutes of baking, while you are sitting down :P

300 gram flakes  (I chose 200g buckwheat flakes, 50g quinoa pops, 50g kasha (but you can make it with oat flakes, spelt flakes, only buckwheat or what you like)
100 gram (raw) mixed nuts, roughly chopped
100 gram sunflower/pumpkin seeds
70 ml coconut oil (liquid)
80ml maple syrup or honey
3 egg whites
1 tsp vanilla powder
2 tsp cinnamon

handful of mulberries and goji berries or any kind of dried fruit you wish

Preheat an oven on 180 degrees. Mix all the dry ingredients in a big bowl and add the coconut oil, vanilla, syrup and make sure everything is combined. Now add the 3 egg whites (just raw, you don't have to do anything with it) and stir again until everything is coated. Take a baking tray and spread the mixture evenly out on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, gently stir so the other side will bake as well for another 15 minutes. Let is completely cool down so it will be mega crunchy and you should have big chunks.

Serve with fresh fruit and (soy) yogurt. Also delicious as a topping on your smoothie, or just as a wonderful snack!
