Granola Cluster Cookies

January 13, 2021
Yields1 Serving
 1 ½ cups pecans
 1 cup sliced or chopped almonds
 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
 ¾ cup pumpkin seeds or hazelnuts (I prefer hazelnuts)
 ½ cup old fashioned oats
 ½ tsp kosher salt
 3 tbsp virgin coconut oil (melted), or extra virgin olive oil (I prefer coconut)
 2 large egg whites
 ¾ cup sugar
1

Preheat oven to 325°. Toss pecans, almonds, coconut, pumpkin seeds, oats, salt, and oil on a rimmed baking sheet and bake, tossing once, until coconut is golden and mixture is fragrant, 10–12 minutes. Let it cool.

2

Whisk egg whites in a large bowl until foamy. Gradually add sugar, whisking until mixture is thick and opaque. Add nut mixture and fold to coat evenly.

3

Drop ¼-cupfuls of mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing evenly. You NEED the parchment because these WILL stick! (This recipe made two batches for me — about 24 cookies). Bake cookies, rotating baking sheet halfway through, until edges are golden, 15–20 minutes. Wait until the cookies are cooled before trying to move them, they are fragile and will fall apart if they aren’t cool enough.
