Ginger and Turmeric Granola

This spiced granola is a real winner at home for us at the moment. There is no added sugar (not even honey or maple, although you can add a few tablespoons if you prefer something sweeter) so the flavour comes from the spices with a little sweetness from the dried fruit. Of course, if raisins or mulberries aren't your thing, then you could swap them out and you'd have a totally sugar free breakfast ready to go!


100g of oats

100g of buckwheat groats

75g of sunflower kernels

75g of yellow raisins

75g of dried mulberries

2 handfuls of dried coconut shavings

a pinch of salt

2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil

2 teaspoons of ground turmeric

2 teaspoons of ground ginger

Preheat the oven to 180c.

Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, except for the coconut chips, and stir well until everything is evenly mixed.

Then spread onto a large baking tray and cook for 10 minutes. Then add the coconut and bake again for a further 3-5, making sure nothing burns by checking regularly!

Remove from the oven and allow to cool before placing in an airtight container. It will last for a couple of weeks in a cool, dry place!
