The weather is finally changing, nights are getting windy and cold and streets have foliage of fallen leaves 🍁❤️ On these cold grey days, I prefer warm breakfast with oatmeal or yogurt and granola also poha/upma/dosa/idli 🙂 But mornings are so hectic that it’s not possible to whip up an elaborate breakfast. So, to make things easy, I made this vegan granola with all the warm nuts and spices (cinnamon & nutmeg) 🍂 I used honey and coconut sugar to🤤 sweeten it. I love it. It’s not too sweet or overpowering. The spices hit the right note and I feel so light after eating that. I serve it with full-fat greek yogurt (Remember, Fat is important 🙂 ) and this granola cooked in lots of good fat #ghee and natural sugar – coconut and honey. It’s the best thing happening at the moment!
Here is the recipe-
3 cups rolled/quick oats
1 cup of your choice of nuts (I used almond slices and walnut chunks)
3/4 cup coconut slices
2 tbsp white sesame seeds
3/4 tbsp cinnamon powder
1/2 tsp nutmeg
4 tbsp coconut sugar (adjust it per your sweetness preference)
1/4 cup honey (adjust it per your sweetness preference)
1/2 cup ghee
* Preheat oven to 275F. Line sheet pan with parchment paper.
* In a bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and then add ghee and honey. Mix it thoroughly.
* Spread it on the sheet pan and bake it for approx. 1 hour stirring it every 12-15 minutes for an even golden brown color. Add and mix some ghee if you prefer it to be soft and rich in flavor 😊
* Serve it with yogurt and your favorite fruit 🍉
