  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 1 large egg white, beaten

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine oats, pecans and pumpkin seeds in large bowl. Add olive oil, honey, egg white, thyme, salt and pepper and stir until well combined. Spread on prepared baking sheet in an even layer and bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through. Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature.
