Notes

FEEDING YOUNG CHILDREN: Whole nuts are a choking hazard for children under 5. Make sure to finely chop the nuts. 
ADD SWEETNESS: As this is sugar-free granola it has no added sugar or sweeteners (maple syrup/honey etc). If you are looking for sweeter granola then you can replace the egg white with 1/4 cup of maple syrup and a drop or two of vanilla (no longer sugar-free).  Alternatively, you can add some chopped dried fruit, freeze-dried fruit or some berries/chopped fresh fruit (after cooking) to suit taste. 
NUT FREE: Substitute with extra seeds (e.g. sesame, sunflower, chia) and add some coconut flakes.
EGG FREE: The egg whites are there to add a little extra crunch to the granola in the absence of sugar. You can replace the egg whites with a 1/4 cup of maple syrup (no longer sugar-free). 
STORAGE: Store the granola in an airtight container at room temperature for 1 to 2 weeks.
