Breakfast, snack food, dessert, easy camping meal – granola has a multitude of satisfying uses! When it comes to granola I love a bit of a crunch. I love it when it sticks together so that I can reach into the jar for a cluster or two whenever that jar should catch my eye. Not only does this recipe have a nice amount of clustering, it has a fabulous crunchy texture.
It benefits from natural brown rice syrup and raisins, gluten-free oats, flaxseed, sunflower seed and coconut along with a warming medley of cinnamon and ginger. I have lots of different recipes for granola, but this one comes with an amazing superfood twist, bringing in some of the wonderful health benefits of maca root powder.
Maca is one of the few plants in the world know as an adaptogen, which means consuming it helps us to cope with challenging and stressful situations on physical, mental and emotional levels. It is very beneficial against anxiety, over-stimulation, fight or flight response and the stress we put our endocrine (hormone) system under on a daily basis. In fact, maca is the quintessential antidote for the burden that modern day living places on our health and wellbeing. So much so that I make sure that I include it in my food on a daily basis.
