Almond Crunch Granola

This is a wonderfully delicious and decadent breakfast that you would easily pay a good few euro for in the supermarkets, but when home made with Aldi ingredients, it costs jut a few cents a bowl and tastes sublime! A perfect way to start the day!

 
Ingredients:
  • 6 cups porridge oats
  • 2 cups dessicated coconut
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
Preheat oven to 350F/180C.

Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl.  Whisk oil, egg whites and extract together until frothy.  Combine with dry ingredients and spread out on a large cookie sheet and bake for fifteen minutes. 

Remove from oven, stir and top with almonds. Bake a further ten minutes and stir again.  Bake for a final five minutes until golden brown.  If desired, mix in some dried fruit of your choice. Store in an air tight container and serve with ice-cold milk or Greek yoghurt.
