I really do love my granola. It is my breakfast food of choice on weekdays. I love to chow down on a nice bowl of it with a dollop of Greek yogurt on top . . . some days I add a drizzle of honey on top. It gets my day off to a really good start!
This year I baked myself a batch of Gingerbread Granola for the holidays! Yes, you read that right. Gingerbread Granola!
It's everything you would expect in a Holiday granola . . . it's spicy, but nicely so with warm gingerbread spices . . . ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves . . . with a bit of orange and vanilla added for even more festive flavours . . .
There is plenty of toasted coconut. The recipe calls for shredded coconut, but I like to use half shredded and half flaked. I love me some nice large bits of toasted coconut, don't you? I also use coconut oil for even more coconut flavour along with some molasses and maple syrup! You really can't go wrong with these flavours!
Add to that plenty of toasted pecans and green salted pistachios . . . and the sweetness of dried cranberries and white chocolate chips, and you have a really nice mix for the holidays! You have just enough time to bake up a batch today . . . it also makes nice gifts Just pour it into a pretty jar and tie a ribbon on top! I guarantee it will make somebody . . . ANYBODY . . . very very happy!
