Millet Granola Recipe


Millet granola recipe, how to make millet granola with jowar flakes (jowar poha). Jowar also known as sorghum is a highly nutritious millet and it is completely gluten free. Its rich in fibre and low in glycemic index and helps to keep you feel satiated for a longer time. Thus its ideal as healthy snack for the whole family.

To make the granola, I am using sprouted jowar poha, sprouting millets helps in better nutrient absorption and in better digestion. As a sweetener, I am using kakvi also known as liquid jaggery. Instead of kakvi, you can use maple syrup, dates syrup, palm jaggery syrup...any liquid sweetener of your choice will be ideal. The liquid jaggery will help to coat the jowar flakes thus giving the granola a subtle sweetness. You may note that I used very little liquid jaggery and very little wood pressed coconut oil. 

For those who are looking for stovetop granola, I have already shared how to make granola without an oven, pls check the video below.

Granola can be enjoyed as a healthy snack and my son loves this granola so much that when I shared recently on instagram, many of you asked for the recipe. I am sure this recipe will be well enjoyed by you and your family.


2 cups jowar flakes (sprouted)

1/2 cup raw peanuts

1/4 cup almonds, chopped

1/4 cup cashew nuts, chopped

Traditionally, pidi is associated with baby shower ie when the daughter-in-law is sent to her parents house for delivery, it is customary for the mother-in-law to make kozhi pidi and we knanaya people still follow these traditions.

I have made a video recipe and I hope this you help
