Ayurvedic Granola

Ayurvedic Granola | Well and Full | #vegan #granola #ayurvedic

I’ll be totally honest, my mind’s not 100% here right now. I’m singing with my friend’s band tomorrow night and I’m SUPER nervous. I haven’t performed in front of a large crowd since high school, when I was the lead in the school musical. This is the most adventurous thing I’ve done since I got sick last year, and it feels like a big step. It IS a big step, and I’ve got the nerves to prove it! So today’s post will be very short and sweet.

This recipe for Ayurvedic Granola is one that I’ve had in my back pocket for a little while. I love granola, and I love warming spices in the wintertime, so this was a mashup made in holistic heaven. Ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, and cardamom give this granola an almost chai-like flavor, and are consistent to¬†Ayurvedic cooking. Banyan Botanicals has a great resource on this.

I hope you love this granola!

Ayurvedic Granola

Made with turmeric and other Ayurvedic spices like cinnamon and cardamom, this Ayurvedic Granola is nourishment for the mind, body, and soul.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


Dry Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Rolled Oats
  • 1/3 Cup Pepitas
  • 2/3 Cup Pecans chopped
  • 1/3 Cup Coconut Flakes not shredded

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil melted
  • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tsp Turmeric
  • 1/8 Tsp Cardamom
  • 1/8 Tsp Ginger Powder


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, mix dry ingredients.
  3. In another, smaller bowl, mix wet ingredients (melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and spices).
  4. Once oven is preheated, fold wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir to combine thoroughly.
  5. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spread granola out into the thinnest layer possible (some overlap is okay).
  6. Bake at 325 degrees F for 15 minutes, checking often to prevent burning.

  7. Just after being taken out of the oven, granola will still be slightly soft. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes to harden.
  8. Serve with your favorite plant milk or vegan yogurt, and enjoy!

    This is everything I want in a breakfast bowl! Did you read my mind, or what? Being on stage is something I find super duper nerve recking too, but I’m sure you rocked the show! I’d love to see a clip of you singing sometime :)

    I love making my own granola at home because I have a gluten allergy and many granolas make me sick, but I had not been able to find a go-to recipe that I really loved until this one. This was by far the best granola I have ever tasted or made. Thank you so much!
