Granola is one of my favorite things to have on hand for a quick breakfast or snack. I really enjoy creating granola recipes – I made some tasty ones for my new book including chocolate hazelnut and bourbon pecan. I also branched out into some savory granolas – and have fallen in love with those too.

I’m sharing the recipe for Curry Cashew Savory Granola today. I have a few others in the book, but this one is amazing on plain coconut or soy yogurt. I like savory granolas as a salad topping,  sprinkled on pasta or as a snack.

You could try making a vegan yogurt dressing with some garam masala and throw in some cooked garbanzo beans to make it a well-rounded meal.

Curry Cashew Savory Granola From OATrageous Oatmeals

Serves: 2 cups

One of the reasons I love curry is that it blends spices used in desserts with savory and fiery flavors. Because of that, this granola straddles the line between savory and sweet.
