  • ½ cup almonds (chopped)
  • ½ cup pecans (chopped)
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 110°C. In a large bowl, combine oats, nuts, seeds, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into the dry oat mixture. Stir gently until dry mixture is coated. Turn out mixture onto a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 60 minutes, stirring every 20 minutes. Once cooked, but still hot, stir in the VITL greens. Store in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks.
