Got bored to tears with the same breakfast every day? Do you want to try something new?
Looking for a light, rich, and not-so-sweet dessert? You have to try Instant Pot Granola!
It is super easy to make at home, and they taste incredible. You have to get an instant pot with a few essential ingredients that are easy to access. Instant Pot will do the rest!
Why This Recipe Works
Instant Pot Granola is one of the simplest recipes to make. This delicious vegan recipe does not take hours and hours in the kitchen to prepare. Instant pot will do everything for you in a few minutes. Furthermore, the ingredients are cheap and affordable. All the ingredients you need for this recipe are simple and easy to find compared to other similar recipes out there.
Dried Apples and mangoes are the star ingredients that can be used in various ways – as toppings in a recipe, adding flavor, and providing a source of vitamins that benefit your health.
Rolled Oats - old-fashioned
Nuts- Slashed nuts contribute an extra sweetness to this recipe and make it even more dessert. Besides its flavor value, slashed nuts also contribute a high fats and proteins caloric ratio.
Raisins - Adding at least ¼ cup of Raisins can further improve the texture and intensify its taste quality. For instance, if raisins are not available to you or you don't like to opt for the recipe, then you can also use cranberries as an alternate ingredient.
Cinnamon Powder - The Sinnamon powder has been revered through the centuries for its sweet-hot flavor and its strong scent. One teaspoon of the Sinnamon powder will not only add fragrance to this recipe but will also fortify its delicious taste without masking the original flavor. And if you love cinnamon iced dishes, have a look at my cinnamon iced apple recipe.

How to Serve
These delicious treats pair well with several of my other Instant Pot breakfast recipes.
The Instant Pot scrambled egg recipe can add some extra protein and nutrition to your breakfast. You can also whip up some strawberry jam or any other jam recipes to serve alongside the Granola. Lastly, you can spread the jam over a toast and have it with instant pot granola for a healthier option.
If you’re looking for vegan icing recipes to serve as a side dish with it, try this Instant Pot almond milk yogurt recipe. This yogurt does not have any added sugar, so it will help balance out the sweetness while providing a creamy, smooth touch.
Which alternate ingredient I can add to my recipe if I don't have resins?
If you're not a fan of raisins, you could use dried cranberries as an alternative. You can also take them out from the recipe.
Can I Add Some More Spices To My Recipe?
Sure! I would recommend using nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, and cloves to make this dessert more fragrant and earthy. Feel free to add in any spices you would like — just make sure you use each of them in moderation.
