I had so much fun creating a fun sweet and spicy ‘Night Cereal’ a couple weeks ago. The Chocolate Chipotle Granola is gone and I might have single handedly eaten it all by myself. So when got milk?, CA Milk challenged me to create another savory twist on cereal and milk for a fun night snack or even meal, I was ready for another challenge.
This was a easy flavor choice our family. One of our favorite things to eat is curry, especially coconut curry. This latest savory cereal recipe is another sweet and spicy combination. The heat of a little curry is balanced with sweet mangos and pineapple. Olivia, my youngest, is always ready to help in the kitchen. And I find that if kids help with cooking and prepping meals they are more likely to eat whats put before them. She loves measuring the stirring so I happily took the help.
We’ve survived the first couple of weeks of school, but we have a crazy week ahead of us. With sports, band, church activities, and homework I know there is going to be an evening when this savory cereal is going to hit the spot as a late night snack or even dinner that my kids can grab for themselves. Curry Coconut Cashew Granola
- 3 cups of rolled oats
- 1 cup of dried coconut
- 1 cup cashews
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 2 1/2 tbsp. curry powder
- 1/4 tsp. cumin
- 1/4 tsp. cardamom
- 1/4 cup dried pineapple (chopped)
- 1/4 cup cup dried mango (chopped)
In a small pot, combine the coconut oil, honey, sugar, curry powder, cumin, salt and cardamom. Warm over medium high heat until the sugar and honey dissolve. Remove from the heat.
In a large bowl combine the oats, coconut, cashews. Pour the melted honey and coconut oil mixture over the oat mixture. Stir till all the ingredients are wet.
Pour the granola onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.Spread out on the sheet evenly. Bake in a 325 F oven for about 25 mins, stirring the mixture halfway through the baking time. Then add the pineapple and mango pieces and bake 5 mins. more.
Cool completely and then break apart the bigger clusters of granola. Store in an airtight container. Serve with cold milk or use as a yogurt or ice cream topping.This post is brought to you by got milk? (Food loves milk!) Thank you for supporting the companies that help make this blog possible.
