Try this easy-to-make, no sugar added healthy granola recipe. It’s perfect to sprinkle over yogurt for breakfast or to snack on in the afternoon. 


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup almonds, chopped
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut chips*
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 3 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Add the oats, nuts, pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes and ground flaxseed to a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine. In a small bowl, mix together the applesauce, coconut oil, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
  3. In the same small bowl, add the egg whites. Whisk until just starting to foam. Fold the egg whites into the granola mixture until well coated and evenly mixed.
  4. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, spread the granola into a thin layer. Bake in the oven for about 50 minutes (stirring halfway through) until the granola is golden brown.
  5. Remove the granola from the oven and let cool for about 15 minutes. Break the granola into clusters. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.


  • Any of the nuts or seeds can be substituted for a different variety in equal amounts. 
  • If you can’t find coconut chips, use unsweetened coconut flakes. 
  • To make this recipe vegan, you can substitute the egg for 1/3 cup pumpkin puree or ¼ cup aquafaba (the brine from a can of garbanzo beans).
