When I started making this granola, I didn’t realise just how much flavour this freshly grated coconut would add – it became the core essence of the granola. Crispy coconut combined with the oats, ample cinnamon, the chewiness of dates and then a touch of jaggery. Incredible! Coconut everything is of course so easy and inexpensive to find in India, especially in the south. But it’s worth getting fresh coconut and making this granola once in a while as a treat! Simple, nutty and delicious!
If you don’t have any jaggery (a natural sweetener found in India), add 1-2 tablespoons of coconut sugar or honey. A little jaggery is used just to give the granola some extra sweetness
