Recipe for Hormone Balance: Turmeric, Coconut, and Cashew Granola

When your healthy snack grabs are starting to feel mundane, it’s time to spice things up. 

Crunchy, creamy, and just a touch of spice, this turmeric, coconut and cashew granola will have your hormones and taste buds thanking you. Enjoy it alone or as a topping for yogurt, chia pudding, oats, granola or fruit bowl with fresh almond milk.

Turmeric is a nourishing spice that has been shown to improve menstrual discomforts, such as PMS and heavy/irregular periods. This powerful spice is rich in curcumin and antioxidants that contain anti-inflammatory properties and support the detoxification of excess hormones. Cashews contain a compound called anacardic acid which supports healthy estrogen levels and combats excess estrogen. These nuts also boost immunity and improve mood. Lastly, coconut is a healthy fat that helps process and eliminate excess estrogen and progesterone, supporting brain function and hormone balance.


  • ½ cup buckwheat groats

  • ½ cup coconut oil

  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup

  • ½ cup oats, chopped or pulse in a food processor 

  • ½ cup halved cashews

  • ½ cup desiccated coconut

  • ¼ cup dried almond pulp (discard from making almond milk) or almond meal

  • 1 teaspoon anise seed

  • ½ teaspoon turmeric

  • ¼ teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Next, warm the coconut oil and maple syrup in a small saucepan. Once oil has melted, remove from heat. In a separate pan, dry toast buckwheat groats over medium heat until aromatic and some begin to pop.

Then, add the toasted buckwheat groats along with the remaining ingredients to the warm oil-maple mixture and combine well. Allow it to sit for 20 minutes so that the oats can absorb the moisture.

Transfer to a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and stir granola, then bake for an additional 15 minutes or until toasty and aromatic.
