1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup whole almonds with skins, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup green pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/3 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 cup mixed dried fruit, such as diced apricots, dates and pears, or blueberries, cranberries, currants and raisins
2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
Nonstick cooking spray
Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Toss the oats, almonds, pecans, pumpkin seeds, wheat germ and sesame seeds in a large bowl.
Melt the butter with 2 tablespoons maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour the syrup mixture over the oat mixture and stir to coat evenly.
Spread the mixture on a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove the mixture from the oven, but leave the oven on.
Transfer the granola to a large bowl. Stir in the remaining maple syrup, the dried fruit and egg whites. Spray twelve 1/2-cup nonstick muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray and firmly press about 1/3 cup of the mixture into each. Bake until set, about 45 minutes.
Transfer the muffin tin to a rack and cool 15 minutes before unmolding. Store cooled granola up to 1 month at room temperature in a tightly sealed container.
