GoldenĀ Granola

Author Notes

This recipe was inspired from my time living in Melbourne where heathy fast-casual restaurants were everywhere. From innovating salad bars, to the classic healthy cafe, this city really encapsulated healthy living, even for those in a hurry.

This golden granola gets its vibrant colour from none other than vibrant turmeric. With increasing research suggesting it have potent anti-inflammatory qualities thanks to its curcumin content, it was paired with clove and ginger. This was then combined into this beautiful, crunchy and delicious granola!

As this granola is nutritionally dense and also contains oil and maple syrup to make is crispy, I usually use it as a topping for a chia pudding breakfast, but you can use it however you like! —laeticiadomagalski

In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the maple syrup, avocado oil, spices and salt until combined.
  3. Add the chia seeds and then the oats and nuts.
  4. Place on lined baking tray ( I like to use a Silpat to make sure the cooking is as even as possible and the cleanup is quicker). Bake until fragrant and golden brown on the edges, approximately 20-30 min or 10-15min with a convection oven.
  5. Enjoy! Store in an airtight container to keep it nice and crunchy!
