  • 3 cups – old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup – pecan pieces
  • 1/4 cup – ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup – brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons – ground ginger
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons – ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon – salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon – ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon – ground cloves
  • 3 tablespoons – honey
  • 2 tablespoons – coconut oil
  • 2 – large egg whites, beaten
  • 2 1/2 ounces – crystallized ginger, diced to 1/4” (about 1/2 cup)
  • Pair each serving with: 8-ounce glass of fat free milk


Preheat oven to 300°F. In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, pecans, ground flaxseed, brown sugar, salt and spices and mix well. In a small bowl, heat honey and coconut oil for 15-20 seconds in microwave and gently whisk to emulsify.

Whisk the egg white in a separate small bowl until foamy. Stir egg white and honey mixture into the oat mixture until dry ingredients are evenly coated. Spread oats onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 40-45 minutes, carefully turning granola over with a large spatula after 20 minutes. When granola is evenly browned and dry to the touch, remove from the oven and cool completely on a cooling rack before breaking granola into clusters.

Mix in crystallized ginger and store in an airtight container. Serve with an 8-ounce glass of milk for a delicious and nutritious morning snack.
