We all know that avoiding added sugars is good for our health and our waistline, but shop-bought granolas can be full of the stuff.
Making your own sugar-free version is easy and nuts are brilliant brain food. Fresh berries are also great brain boosters, so make sure to add a few to your bowl.

PREP TIME: 10 mins / COOKING TIME: 40 mins
3 egg whites
100g jumbo oats
50g raw, unsalted cashews, chopped
50g Brazil nuts, chopped
50g flaked almonds
25g sunflower (or pumpkin) seeds
A pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 150°C. Separate the eggs, place the whites in a large bowl and whisk with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer until it forms stiff peaks. In another bowl mix together all the remaining ingredients. Add the whisked egg whites to the other ingredients and stir thoroughly with a metal spoon to ensure everything is evenly coated. Spread onto a baking tray lined with baking parchment and bake for 40 minutes, stirring after 20 minutes to break up the granola a little. Leave to cool fully, then store in an airtight container. You can keep it for up to 3 weeks. Serve with Greek yoghurt and fresh berries.
