I mentioned in one of my What’s in Season Wednesday posts over on social media that I cannot get enough oranges this year. With all these oranges hanging around, I started thinking about other ways to use them and enjoy their bright citrusy flavor. I was also preparing to share my Sweet Potato Breakfast Bowls with you, which include granola. Well, sweet potatoes and oranges are a delightful flavor pairing, as are sweet potatoes and warm spices like cardamom and cinnamon. Thus, Orange Cardamom Granola was born.
This granola variation is a solid winter option for your yogurt + granola pairings. Winter is citrus season, so let’s celebrate it as often and in as many ways as we can. I enjoy cardamom year-round, but it feels especially cozy during the winter months. Plus, it has a slight citrus note to it on its own, so marrying it to orange zest in this granola just feels right. Nutritionally, cardamom aids in healthy digestion - what better way to start your day?
