Easy homemade ginger turmeric granola inspired by the Trader Joe's granola with the same name. Crunchy, golden in color, and made with turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, and coconut. So good no one will believe it's oil-free and refined sugar-free! Nut-free option.
Preheat oven to 320 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silicone mat.
In a mixing bowl combine the syrups, almond butter, vanilla, salt, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon, pepper, and nutmeg. Microwave in 10 to 15 second intervals just to warm the syrup slightly. This makes it easier to stir and combine with the other ingredients.
Once the wet ingredients are mixed, add the oats, coconut, and seeds to the bowl. Stir until everything is well coated with the syrup mixture.
Spread the granola onto the prepared pan, lightly pressing it down (see photo in post). Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from oven. Using a large spoon or small spatula, scoop up chunks of the granola and flip them over. This helps ensure you end up with plenty of clusters. Bake for another 15 to 17 minutes, keeping an eye on the bottom of the granola in the last few minutes to prevent burning.
Let the granola cool on the pan for 15 minutes, then break into clusters. Once completely cool, transfer to an airtight container.
Store granola in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week or refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. Granola is also freezer-friendly.
