I wish you could smell my apartment right now–it is heavenly. This granola is sugar and spice and, you know, everything nice.
Granola is simple–mix the dry ingredients, then the wet, then combine them all together and bake for a half hour. Here, I’ve used almonds, sunflower seeds, and coconut. But you’re free to substitute whatever nuts and seeds suit you.
This granola is especially great as a cereal because the spices will leave you with a lovely bowl of spicy chai cereal milk, and what could be better than that?
TURMERIC CHAI GRANOLA makes three cups
2 cups of rolled oats
1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
1/4 cup of coconut flakes
1/4 cup of almonds
1 teaspoon of turmeric
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon of cloves
1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons of honey
2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 egg white
1/4 cup of dried fruit, optional (I used cranberries)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Combine dry ingredients: oats, sunflower seeds, coconut, almonds, turmeric, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, cardamom, pepper, and salt.
In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients: coconut oil, honey, vanilla extract, and egg white. Then mix the wet ingredients into the dry. Spoon the mixture onto a baking sheet.
Bake for minutes at 300 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes. If using dried fruit, mix it in at the end of baking time. Cool and store in a cool, dry place.
