Savoury Gluten Free Granola

July 30, 2017
Here's one for the weekend: savoury granola!
.
In my opinion, sweet granolas (though UTTERLY delicious) are getting a little yawn-tastic these days...
.
Aside from the fact I routinely give my gut a break from sweet-tasting foods first thing in the morning, it's also important to change up what you eat regularly so you don't develop intolerances to foods you love! .
To give your gut a break from all the sweet nut-milk-infused granolas, here's a little savoury treat instead. PERFECT with soup, veggie or bone broths, atop salads or eaten on its own, I've included a range of savoury spices to support optimal digestion. Here's what & why:
.
✨Cumin - antiviral, anti-inflammatory, improves digestion, supports bones
.
✨Garlic - antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, lowers blood pressure
.
✨Cayenne - anti-inflammatory, improves circulation & metabolism
.
✨Ground Coriander - anti-inflammatory, prevents gas, alleviates cramps & gout
.
✨Ground Mustard - alleviates congestion, bronchitis, sore throat & arthritis
.
✨Garam Masala - heats the body, improves digestion, eases constipation
.
Sea Salt - contains magnesium, calcium, potassium, iron, zinc & iodine
.
Ground Onion - natural antiseptic, lowers blood pressure, alleviates asthma & colds
.
GUT-TASTIC GRANOLA
.
You need:
.
1.5 cups gluten free oats
.
1 cup desiccated coconut
.
1/2 cup dried organic raisins
.
1/2 cup smashed cashew nuts OR sunflower seeds
.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
.
1/3 cup ground flax + 1/3 cup water
.
1 tspn each: garlic, garam masla, ground coriander, cumin, onion, salt
.
1/2 tspn each: mustard, cayenne
.
You do:
.
Pre-heat oven to 160C/320F. Combine flax & water, leave to thicken.
.
In a medium bowl, combine dry ingredients, mix well.
.
Add oil into flax mix. Combine with dry mixture.
.
Mix with a fork to combine. Flatten mixture about 1/4 inch thick on a baking tray.
.
Bake for 25 mins or until edges brown. Remove & break into larger chunks. Place in oven to crisp up further.

I leave granola in the oven another 10 minutes, until golden brown. Leave out overnight to crisp further.

Enjoy every spice-induced, savoury crunch! ✌
