The world is a-buzz about turmeric! I am a-buzz about anything oat-related 🙂 I ran out of granola in my house and wanted to create a simple, new recipe that could go on all of my summery breakfasts: yogurt bowls, smoothie bowls, smoatmeal bowls. (That’s a thing!)
This combination of flavors makes an absolutely delicious, simple granola – the slight sweetness from honey, subtle turmeric spice, a touch of salt.
Turmeric is the spice that makes curry yellow that has been used in India for thousands of years. It’s delicious used in everything from savory tofu dishes to the golden lattes everyone’s been drinking. Add granola to that list!
With 4 grams of fiber per serving, oats are a convenient source of fiber, which can help support digestive health and keep food moving through our intestines! A diet that includes 25 to 30 grams of fiber a day from a variety of grains, fruits and vegetables may help support a healthy digestive system.
To get started, preheat your oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. I gave the oats a pre-toast to get the extra crunchy. I think this is a technique I will continue to use! Toast them for 5-7 minutes and allow to cool slightly.
Meanwhile, combine honey, oil, turmeric, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl until well mixed.
Add oats and stir until every oat is coated.
Spread granola back out on parchment and bake for 10 minutes, stir, and bake for 5 minutes more.
Cool completely before stirring, which will allow some small clusters to form!
Enjoy a million ways, including straight from hand to mouth! Feel free to stir in some dried fruit such as raisins or chopped apricots if you want.
