Need an energizing snack you can easily take on the go or munch on at home guilt-free? Try this delicious Grain-Free Moringa Granola. It's actually addicting. But its also so nutritious for you! Below is a step by step of how to easily make this granola at home.
Place the macadamia nuts in a blender and pulse for about 5-10 seconds
They should look like this when you are finished pulsing them. There will be some larger chunks and some will look like macadamia nut meal.
Repeat for the cashews.
And the pistachios.
Combine the pulsed nuts with the coconut fakes, shredded coconut, pepitas, honey, maca and egg white.
Warm coconut oil over the stove and add the Moringa. Stir over low heat until the Moringa is well blended. Then add the Moringa coconut oil to the other ingredients and mix well.
Place the granola on parchment paper and spread out evenly.
Bake at 350F for 20-30 minute or until somewhat browned. Careful as it can burn quite easily. Mix every 5 minutes to prevent the bottom from burning.
