There are times for extravagant breakfasts and there are times when cold, milky granola bowls are just want you need. Spiced with just a little bit of cardamom and nutmeg this granola mix smells absolutely amazing as it bakes with just enough hint of the spices as you eat without feeling too overpowered by them.
Spiced Granola with Cardamom and Nutmeg
3 cups of rolled oats
1 cup of chopped nuts
3 green cardamom pods, finely grounded (or 1/2 teaspoon of already grounded cardamom)
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/2 cup of honey or maple syrup
1 teaspoon of salt
Handful of dried fruits
Pre-heat oven to 300 F. Mix rolled oats, nuts, salt and spices in a large bowl. Add honey and coconut oil, stir until well-coated. Spread the mixture evenly on a baking sheet with deep edges. Bake at 325 F for 30 minutes, or until the granola reaches a golden brown. As it’s baking, give the granola mix a stir after about 20 minutes. Once it’s done, add in the fried fruits and let the granola cool on the tray. Store in an air-tight container.
