Servings 16 1/2 cup per person

Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened chocolate chips
  • 2 cups cashew or mixed nuts
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp course salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 4 cups aronia berries

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place aronia berries on a parchment lined sheet pan. Make sure they are evenly spread out. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes. Let cool when it is done.
  • Meanwhile, combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl, tossing to mix evenly.
  • Pour olive oil evenly into the mixture and stir to coat mixture.
  • Whisk two egg whites in a small bowl until frothy. Stir evenly into the granola mixture.
  • Pour maple syrup over the oat mixture.
  • Stir in dried aronia berries to oat mixture.
  • Spread it in a single layer (approx. 1/2 inch thick) on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  • Increase the temperature to 375 degrees F. Bake for 30 minutes. About halfway through the baking time, use a larger spatula to turn over sections of the granola to evenly brown it.
  • After 30 minutes, turn off the oven and leave the pan for another 15 minutes.
  • Transfer the pan from the oven to the cooling rack to cool completely. Once it is completely cool, break granola into bite size clusters.
  • Can store granola in an airtight container for 2 weeks at room temperature.
