The spices used here are those found in the most common varieties of masala chai. A wonderfully nourishing, and energizing mix and a great way to get your day underway.
Flavours of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, nutmeg, and clove along with a touch of maple are enjoyed with every bite in this chai spiced granola.
Preheat the oven to 160ºC (325ºF) and line a baking sheet with baking paper. Mix together the maple syrup, vanilla, and melted coconut oil then set aside.
Add the oats, nuts, coconut flakes, sultanas, seeds, and all the chai spice ingredients into a large bowl. Mix well to combine.
Pour the previously combined wet ingredients into the bowl then toss thoroughly to combine and coat the granola.
Tip the granola onto the lined baking sheet and flatten out into a single layer. Bake for 10 minutes.
Remove the tray from the oven, stir the granola, flatten out again and return to the oven for another 5 – 10 minutes or until golden.
Remove the granola from the oven and allow to cool completely. Tip it into a jar with an airtight lid and store in the cupboard for 2+ weeks
