Maple Pecan Granola 6 Steps
Preheat oven to 300°F. In a large bowl, combine oats, pumpkin seeds, flax, olive oil, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt.
Stir brown sugar, maple syrup and vanilla together in a small bowl. Toss syrup with oat mixture.
In a separate, clean bowl, whisk egg whites until frothy. Combine with oat mixture.
Spread granola in an even layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes.
Remove granola from oven. Add in pecans and, using a large spatula, flip over large sections of granola, trying not to break up clusters. Bake for an additional 20 minutes, until toasted and evenly browned.
Remove granola from oven and allow to cool completely. Mix in dried fruit. Store in an airtight container.
