Experimenting with spices is so much fun. Due to such an experiment, this gluten free, sugar free turmeric granola was born. My wish was to develop another sugar free granola recipe with lots of flavour so you don’t miss the sugar at all. From my point of view, cardamon, cinnamon or anise are the best spices to use if you have sweet cravings. If I make sugar free granola, these spices are a must, as these spices give some kind of sweet taste. But not to get bored of same spices in every granola, I thought I could add some turmeric. It does not only give a beautiful yellow colour, it also gives a unique warm flavour.
I made this granola from puffed rice and buckwheat, with different seeds and nuts. Puffed rice and buckwheat become so nicely crisp when baked in the oven, so it is just perfect if you wish to have a crispy granola.
