Tropical Turmeric Granola

I don't know about you, but most granola on the market just doesn't do it for me. It's either too sweet, not crunchy enough, or loaded with weird preservatives and ingredients. Well, it turns out that there's no reason to settle for mediocre granola because it's actually super easy (and kind of fun) to make it yourself. What follows is my current go-to granola recipe. It's packed with all kinds of healthy ingredients - rolled oats, flax and chia seeds, turmeric, cinnamon, and honey, just to name a few - but still tastes like a treat. Sounds like a win-win to me!


Note: This formula is infinitely customizable. Try substituting your preferred nuts, seeds, fruit, and even sweetener. Not a fan of coconut? Use avocado, grapeseed, or even olive oil instead of coconut oil and leave out the shredded coconut. Can't imagine a snack without chocolate? Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips at the end with the dried fruit (obviously make sure the granola is cooled completely or your chocolate will melt). Don't like my Toasted Coconut Turmeric Blend? How about some Chai Masala or some Autumn Spice?
