Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir well for a minute, to fully incorporate and turn sticky.

Whisk egg white until foamy and add to the granola mixture, and mix well.

Add the dried fruits, and mix one more time.

Spread the granola mixture onto a lined baking tray (13×9 inch in size) and press it well using a spatula.
