Earlier in the year my dad was put on a sulfite free diet and whilst it hasn’t been too tricky for lunches and dinners, he has found breakfast to be a little less fun. He’s a muesli lover from way back and dried fruits are now a big no-no which limits his options somewhat. I decided to help brighten his mornings a little by whipping up a batch of granola that was free from any fruits but instead packed full of nuts and seeds. I gave it to him with a bottle of my cashew milk and he was a very happy camper!
After seeing macadamia granola recipes on both The Sticky and Sweet and 84th and 3rd I decided it was time I tried making my own granola, but went with cashew as my nut of choice and threw in a good amount of both cranberries and coconut to sweeten the whole thing up. It turned out really delicious and I have been loving it for breakfast with some coconut yoghurt and berries, or sprinkling it on top of smoothies for a bit of crunch. It’s so easy to make so you can personalise it to your own tastes without having to worry about added sugar or other preservatives. I have a feeling I’ll be making this very often!
