Nutty Granola Clusters

 I love granola with milk, fruit or yogurt, I also like to eat granola for a snack. This is the perfect snacking granola, it is soft almost like a chunk of a oatmeal cookie. Did I mention that it is delicious and quick to make.
I found the recipe at The Red Spoon, a great blog with beautiful photography--check it out
Nutty Granola Clusters
2 cups old fashioned oats
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped assorted nuts, toasted
1/2 cup coconut
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
1 egg white
Preheat oven to 325-degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl mix together the oats, flour, brown sugar, salt and nuts.
In a microwave safe bowl heat the butter and honey together until the butter is melted. Pour over the oat mixture and stir until combined.
Whisk egg white in a small bowl until frothy. Add to oat mixture and mix until incorporated.
Evenly spread oat mixture onto parchment-lined baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
Let granola cool completely, then break apart into clusters. Serve with milk,  fruit or yogurt.
The clusters remind me of a chewy granola bar. If you like crunchy granola check out this or this, both excellent.
