Chaat Masala Granola

Granola with a savory twist! Chaat Masala Granola is a crunchy, sweet, spicy, salty topping for salads, roasted veggies, rice, and more.




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine the nuts, oats, chaat masala, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the maple syrup and olive oil and stir until well combined.
  2. Transfer the oat mixture to the baking sheet and spread into an even layer. Bake for 12 minutes, stir and press into an even layer again, bake for 5 more minutes. Remove from oven and stir in the apricots and coconut, press into an even layer again, and bake for 12 more minutes.
  3. Remove granola from oven and let cool on the baking sheet for at least an hour before breaking into chunks. Store in an air tight container if you don’t eat it all first!


The nuts I used were roasted and salted. If yours are not salted, I would increase the salt to 1 teaspoon.

Be sure to let the granola cool for at least an hour – this encourages big hunks of granola to form.

Try this on more than just yogurt – it’s delicious on roasted veggies, salads, fruit, and rice.
