– Old-fashioned oats – Wheat germ – Pecans – Nutmeg – Cinnamon – Ground cloves – Salt – Eggnog
– Maple syrup – Vanilla extract – Egg white – Dried cranberries – Sprinkles (optional... but fun!)
Preheat oven to 275 & line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In large bowl, mix oats, wheat germ, pecans, nutmeg, cinnamon, ground cloves, & salt.
In a separate bowl, stir together eggnog, maple syrup, & vanilla.
Whisk egg white in small bowl for 30 seconds, until frothy. Stir into eggnog mix & pour into oats. Stir to coat oats completely.
Evenly spread mixture on baking sheet. Bake for 60 mins, rotating pan halfway through cooking, until granola is golden & crispy.
Remove from oven & let rest until cooled (don't stir!). Break up big clumps & stir in cranberries. Stir in sprinkles if desired.
