Who agrees that finding a sugar-free, nut-free, good tasting granola is basically impossible? It seems that all granola these days are loaded with sugar, and if they’re not, most are honestly not that great tasting. I got in my kitchen today and decided to fix the problem, and not only fix it but create a granola that had functional benefits as well!
This granola tastes great, it’s simple to make, AND it is inflammation-reducing, restorative and stress relieving – talk about multi-purposeful ;).
The functional properties (i.e. inflammation reducing, restorative, etc) come from the fact that it includes Glow Flow Chefs Instant Turmeric Latte Powder, which contains turmeric (inflammation-reducing), coconut powder and tocotrienols (restorative), ashwagandha, reishi (stress-relieving) and astragalus (healing). And I just love the addition of golden berries for their burst of sour flour and of course their powerful antioxidant properties.
This granola works perfectly as a topper to smoothies, yogurt or desserts. It does not clump together, so if you’re looking for that, my suggestion is to throw in an egg with the liquid mixture, which will serve as a binder and make the granola a bit “clumpier.” I definitely will be trying that next time.
Enjoy this healing, GOLDEN GRANOLA!
