Almond + Meyer Lemon Granola ~ Have you been good so far this year? Are you sticking to that new program that you started last month? It’s ok if you haven’t or if you don’t like to even participate in any sort of program. I am with the latter group and stand by the all in moderation adage. I mean how can I be asked to give up things like chocolate, tacos and wine? These are necessities in my world so … all in in moderation I say. We are in the thick of citrus season and I am a lover of lemons. Last week, I made a jumbo batch of this sweet and zesty Almond + Meyer Lemon Granola and we couldn’t get enough of it. I sprinkled it over my vanilla yogurt (yum!) while the kiddos grabbed it by the handful after basketball practice. Let the crunching games begin.
Gorgeous Meyer Lemons from my pal Kristina’s backyard — thanks friend!
Watch me make this on Studio 512 with the always lovely Amanda Tatom.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl whisk together Meyer lemon juice and zest with egg whites, coconut oil, brown sugar, and salt. Next add in the almonds and the oats and gently stir together until well combined. Pour mixture out onto a cookie sheet and place into the oven.
Cook for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes gently flip granola over and continue to cook for another 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with milk, yogurt or as is.
