Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and line a rimmed baking sheet with a silicone liner or parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, combine the maple syrup, coconut oil, honey, vanilla and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, coconut, pepitas, chia seeds and flax meal. Pour the maple/coconut mixture into the bowl with the oats and stir to combine.
Once combined add the frothy egg whites and stir to combine. Pour the granola mixture out onto your prepared pan. Slide it onto the middle rack of your oven and bake for 10 minutes. Rotate the pan and bake for 10 more minutes or until golden.
Allow the granola to cool in the pan for 30 minutes before serving. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container for up to two months.
