Nut & grain free Turmeric spiced Granola

An anti-inflammatory hit to boost energy.

For me breakfast needs to be a balance of protein, fiber, good fats, greens and some antioxidants from fruits. This combination helps to turn off all the hunger hormones and stop you from reaching for a snack around 10am.

I have been playing around with granola recipes for a while and I have finally found a combination that works for me and it is based on the famous Turmeric latte. The flaour combination is the same and you get that anti-inflammatory hit first thing in the morning. The awesome flavours are combined with protein, fiber and good fats to get you through the morning.

This is a recipe that you can chop and change depending on what you have in the cupboard and what your preferences are. Chopped nuts is a fantastic substitute or activated buckini’s, puffed buckwheat or quinoa. However you choose this flavour combination is the best so go and experiment with what you have.

I team this with my Green Chia Pudding or just have it with Coyo coconut yoghurt. I am hopeful you like this as much as me, it is so easy and quick to whip up for the week.
