Cashew Curry Granola Tips:

Sweet lemonade, coconut milk, and a delicately infused lavender tea combines beautifully with the creaminess of overnight oats. The delicious treat has a perfect balance of flavors. 

  • Curry: Madras curry powder is such a unique blend of herbs and spices. The pungent, sweet scent leaves behind a recognizable taste that thoroughly enhances the granola. Combined with sweet and spicy ingredients, this recipe is a recognizable classic combination of flavor.
  • Dried fruit: Raisins genuinely compliment the bittersweet nature of curry by adding a sweetness that enhances the fragrant spice. Some other fruit options to explore are dried apples, apricots, banana, cherries, dates, figs and pineapples.
  • Nuts: Almonds, cashew and coconut add sweetness, nuttiness and crunch to the granola recipe. Each of the nuts are the most common complimentary combinations that benefit the intense flavor of curry powder.
  • Seeds: Chia seeds, flaxseeds and sesame seeds are sources of superfood nutrition added to the oat clusters.
  • Oats: Rolled oats produce the best results in this baked granola recipe. Quick oats result in a crumbly granola rather than maintaining large clusters.
  • Vegan: The ingredients are free of any animal byproducts and this recipes is vegan..
  • Gluten free: Oats are naturally gluten free, however certified gluten free oats are recommended if you are on a strict celiac diet.
  • Sweetener: As it currently stands, this recipe is not very sweet. Sweeten the baked granola by adjusting the maple syrup as needed. Substitute for brown sugar, coconut sugar, honey or stevia if you are looking for an alternative.
  • Clusters or crumble: Stirring while baking breaks up the large clusters into smaller crumble. If you prefer crispy clumps, then gently spread the bunches apart without spending too far apart. Rotate the pan to promote even cooking throughout the batch.
  • Storage: Cool to room temperature and then store the granola in an airtight container. Enjoy within 3 weeks to maintain freshness and quality.
