We are big fans of Golden Milk, the traditional Indian drink that is rooted in Ayurveda. It’s also known as Haldi ka Doodh. It’s made from a mixture of warm Milk and turmeric powder. This may seem like a strange combination at first, but it is delicious. This is not only delicious, but it’s also anti-inflammatory. This granola pays homage to golden milk.
Golden milk granola is a crunchy, delicious way to enjoy the warmth, sweetness, and spice of golden Milk. Nuts and seeds are included for a nutritious breakfast or snack on the go! Just nine ingredients are required. We’ll show you exactly how to do it!
Friends, there’s good news! This recipe works great with either aquafaba or coconut oil. You can choose from a variety of versions to get a golden milk granola that is crispy and vibrant.
It’s been years since we made Aquafaba, but the fluffy texture created by whipping chickpea salt is still amazing (see it below). It’s not only a fantastic binder for granola but also makes vegan cano and waffles. It even makes cookies like woah.
This granola is made with rolled oats, which give it a classic granola texture, almonds, chia seeds, and coconut flakes. We also added a bit of salt to add flavor. Coconut sugar provides sweetness. Golden milk spice mix is the component of golden Milk (which contains turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon). Maple syrup and whipped aquafaba combine to produce crispy granola. A touch of vanilla extract can be added to the granola for a subtle vanilla flavor.
The final step after mixing the ingredients is to bake it quickly. Add some golden raisins to the mix for a golden color.
- 3 cups of rolled oats, gluten-free if needed
- 1 cup raw almonds chopped (or slivered)
- Unsweetened Coconut Flakes – 1/2 cup
- 1 Tbsp Chia seeds
- 14 cup Coconut Sugar
- Half a teaspoon of sea salt
- 2 1/2 Tbsp golden milk spice mix (see notes for individual spices)
- If you want to use oil, sub equal amounts of coconut or avocado oil.
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- Golden raisins, 1/3 cup (optional).
- Preheat oven to 325 F (164 C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
- Add the oats to a large bowl. Then add the chopped almonds, the coconut, chia seed, coconut sugar, sea salt, and spice mix for golden Milk (see individual spice notes). Stir well to combine.
- Use an electric mixer to create loose peaks. It usually takes 5-7 minutes. If you are using oil instead of aquafaba, then skip the whipping stage.
- Add maple syrup and (optional) vanilla to the aquafaba, and continue to beat for another 30 seconds (or, if you are using oil to mix it); pour the wet mix over the dry ingredients and fold it to coat evenly.
- Spread the mixture evenly on the parchment-lined baking tray and bake it for 25-30 min. Stir the mixture at half-way and rotate the pan for even baking.
- Then, add the golden raisins and mix. Enjoy the granola as a snack or with dairy-free milk in a container that is airtight. Store the granola at room temperature for up to three days. You can also store it in the fridge for two weeks or the freezer for one month.
