Protein Granola

This is a simple breakfast recipe which when combined with natural yogurt, fruit and honey makes a delicious granola bowl. The addition of protein powder helps to boost the nutritional value and keeps hunger at bay for longer. I use a vanilla flavoured protein powder, but an unflavoured one will work well too. The egg white helps the mixture to clump together to make delicious crispy morsels.
