Maple Turmeric Granola

There are two reasons why this granola is special. One, it’s incredibly crunchy – more so than your average granola; and two, it includes turmeric which adds an intriguing depth of flavour. I make a batch of granola every couple of weeks so there are plenty of opportunities for experimenting. Yet, I’ve been baking this version on repeat lately, each time wondering if it’s a fluke that it’s so good. Well, I can tell you it’s not. You will notice I give you a range of 1 to 2 tsp of ground turmeric to play with and if you’re skeptical about this, you can start with a lower amount for your first batch (I bet there will be a second). 

In other news, if you wonder what I’ve been up to I recently I have picked up a new hobby. And of course, gardening season has begun. I hope you are doing well and enjoying the wonderful Spring weather!

Once the granola is at room temperature, add a few handfuls of dried fruit – I used dried blueberries and raisins, but cranberries work well too. Store in an airtight container.
