Grain-Free Ginger Turmeric Granola

Grain-Free Ginger Turmeric Granola

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is to add a little heat to my go-to snacks and dishes, and grain-free granola is no exception! I use it to top my morning yogurt bowls or eat as a snack, and adding warming spices like ginger and turmeric makes this version perfect for the colder weather. Protein-packed with goodies like pecans and pepitas, this recipe is a great way to start your day and it’s easy to make!

1 teaspoon sea salt

7 Tablespoons water
¼ cup olive oil
½ cup maple syrup
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

For the flax eggs:

  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the ground flax seed and water and set aside for 10 minutes.
