Turmeric in your breakfast cereal… who would have thought? The Georgia Gold™ Turmeric Powder plays so nicely with the rich, sweet flavors of coconut and the warm, spicy notes of ginger, and when gently baked together with oats and a blend of nuts and seeds, turmeric turns everyday granola into something truly special.
This granola is perfect as breakfast cereal (it turns your cereal milk a delightful orange color!), as a topping for yogurt or ice cream, or on its own by the handful as a snack. The recipe calls for a mixture of pecans and cashews, but you can use whatever nuts you have on hand at home. Personally, I don’t care for dried fruit in my granola, but if you do, golden raisins and dried apples would pair nicely with this recipe.
