raw almonds slivers

Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Mix together oats, nuts, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom in a large bowl.
Add maple syrup, olive oil, and egg white to the dry ingredients. Stir well to combine.
Spread the mixture on the prepared baking sheet and bake without stirring until deep golden brown and fragrant, about 40 to 45 minutes.
Allow the granola to cool completely in the pan -- it will crisp up as it cools.
Once cool, break the granola into chunks with your fingers and mix in crystallized ginger.
