Cardamom Cashew Granola

These days I keep granola on the dining table. My kids just pick it up and keep munching on them whenever they want. For me, it’s either granola with milk or yogurt, as meal fillers. And why not.. it’s refined sugar free, filled with healthy fats, nuts and dried fruits. This particular one has an Indian kick to it with cardamom flavour and toasted cashews.

Recipe :

In bowl add 2 cups of whole oats, 1/4 tsp cardamom, a pinch of salt and set aside. .

In another bowl whisk 1/4 cup honey, 1/8 cup coconut oil. Add this to the oat mixture. Stir well.. If it’s too dry add a tbsp of coconut oil. .

Tip the mixture on to a baking sheet and spread into one layer. Bake for 10 mins in the oven. Remove and toss around and place it back for 5 mins. Remove and add the cashews. Place it back for another 5 to 8 mins. You want to pay attention at this stage. It can brown quickly. I like my granola Amber coloured, Dark and nutty. If you like them slightly less toasted, take it out at the 5 minute mark.

Throw in dried fruit of choice. I used black raisins and cranberries. I also had some leftover toasted pumpkin seeds, so used that too. Make it your own with what nuts and fruits your family prefer. Toss and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

It’s very easy to eat this one by the handful.

Hi. I am Subalakshmi Sundar. The face behind The Petit Bite. People gathered around a table, good food, great company and fun conversations are the things that make me the happiest. This blog is an attempt to share one part of that with all of you. Great Food. Indian palate is going through a huge culinary journey right now. We are rooted in traditions but want to explore the world cuisines as well. That's what I enjoy the most. A slight Indian twist given to world recipes to suit our palate. You will find easy recipes for busy days, slightly long recipes for days when cooking is therapy and recipes that take time to come together when you want to immerse yourself in to the fine art of cooking. Whatever recipe you choose, I hope it's a pleasure to cook and to eat. Do tag me on Instagram or facebook if you try any. Nothing makes me happier. Happy cooking, y'all.. Much Love, S.
