Servings 10 servings
Preheat the oven to 350F; line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
Toss the oats, coconut, cashews, flaxseed meal, and salt together in a large bowl.
Whisk together the butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean paste in a small bowl.
Stir the butter mixture into the oat mixture to combine, and then stir in the egg white to coat.
Spread the granola out onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden, about 20 minutes, tossing once halfway through.
Cool to room temperature, and then transfer to an airtight container. Store at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
- Each serving is a slightly heaping 1/2 cup.
- In this recipe, egg white acts as a binder, and will help your granola stick together and form clumps.
- Vegan Version: Use coconut oil instead of butter and omit the egg white.
