Protein-packed peanut butter – carob granola with chia seeds and dry tart cherries.
watch me make it in this video
Soak a tablespoon of chia seeds in 10 tbsp of water. The use of soaked chia seeds enriches granola with protein and makes it crunchy. Fresh cardamom, for this recipe, I love to use tart cherries (or bing cherries), but you can opt for sweet ones.
Combine all wet ingredients first, then mix all the dry ingredients together. I’m using my homemade peanut butter, you can see the way I make it in this video, or you can get your favorite brand.
Bake in preheated to 300F oven for 30 min stirring once halfway through.
My favorite way to enjoy it is with fruits and homemade yogurt.
