Aquafaba. Either you don’t know that is or...you’re vegan. This foreign sounding liquid is probably in your pantry right now, hiding in plain sight. It’s the liquid you find in cans of chickpeas and it’s magical.
Because of its ability to fluff when whisked, this thick liquid can be used in vegan baking, as an egg white substitute, or even to make vegan meringues. But today, we’re using it to make oil-free Aquafaba Granola!
If you can’t have oil for whatever reason, but still crave something to sprinkle over your yogurt in the morning, this recipe is for you. Rather than be held together by a binder like oil or nut butter, this recipe keeps its form from the fluffy, whipped aquafaba. And don’t worry, your granola won’t taste like chickpeas. Instead, you’ll be met with warm cinnamon and sweet goji berries with every spoonful.
With just a few minutes of hands on time, you’ll be able to have your breakfast ready sooner than you can figure out how to pronounce aquafaba. It’s also a great option for meal prep. Make a batch on Sunday and use it throughout the week. Or, store in the freezer so you can always have your favorite topping on hand whenever cravings call.
From the oil-free ingredients, this granola tends to stay on the softer side. I personally love all granolas, but if you're looking for a bit more crunch in your life, I’d recommend looking at these recipes.
