When you’re ready for a salty, crunchy, delicious snack, this savory granola will be here for you! All of the usual suspects are involved in this granola (cue rolled oats plus your favorite nuts and seeds) but made unique and complete with spices like cayenne and garam masala to bring a spiced & savory kick. The hint of honey brings a nice balance to the savory, umami flavor, while the incomparable combo of the nuts, seeds, and Happy Day oats will give you something you won’t be able to stop snacking on, all day - every day.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, coconut aminos, honey, garam masala, cayenne pepper, and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the rolled oats, raw cashews, sliced almonds, pecan halves, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds. Add these dry ingredients into the olive oil mixture, and stir together to fully incorporate. Transfer the mixture to a rimmed baking sheet, and spread out so everyone has room to breathe! Bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes, or until the mixture is golden brown. Let cool before enjoying!
Meet Dada Eats:
I grew up in Newport Beach, California and spent part of high school there and in London, England. I think I owe it to London for making me the foodie that I am today – from hole in the wall Indian joints to some of the most incredible Sicilian style pizza I’ve ever had, London’s foodscape was transformative for my palate. After moving back to California to spend my final two years of high school, I attended UC Berkeley (goooo bears) where I was completely engulfed by the amazing gastronomy in both the windy city and Berkeley itself. Living and studying so close to a city as amazing as San Francisco, not to mention in eating distance of some of the best food I’ve ever had (I’m looking at you Chez Panisse, Vik’s Chaat House, Ici Ice Cream, Bi-Rite Creamery…) has made me into the human “Yelp” of my friend group (and family, for that matter) that I am today.
Fast forward to now, I am the host of NBC’s Digital Show, #Cooking with Samah Dada and feel lucky to be living and working in New York City pursuing my passion for wellness, recipe development, and food through #DADAEATS.
