Start your day off with this perfect Taiwanese-American fusion! This granola is inspired by Taro Milk (芋頭牛奶), a very popular drink in Taiwan and something I grew up drinking.
Knowing that potatoes/sweet potatoes are often used as a binder for granola, I figured taro must work as well. The result is a crispy, toasty granola with a mild vanilla undertone from the taro. As you eat it, the taro flavors slowly infuse with the milk to become taro milk!
By itself, taro flesh usually has a white or pale pink color. To get the familiar purple color, you have to add some purple sweet potatoes. My favorite is the Okinawan Hawaiian Purple Sweet Potatoes 3 Lbs.
