This spiced gingerbread granola is perfectly festive. Healthy, nourishing, satisfying and tastes just like ginger bread.
One of my favourite flavours for the colder weather and festive season is ginger. I put it in everything I can!
Today I used ginger in this in a new granola recipe. This has plenty of crunch, texture, flavour and warmth to brighten up those dark, cold mornings.
Bursting of flavour this gingerbread granola has ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins and coconut flakes. It’s crunchy and chewy and so moorish! Sweetened only with maple syrup, this is wholesome and hearty and will keep you full all day.
Plus this is lovely and aromatic, as the granola gets perfectly crisp in the oven, you entire kitchen will smell delicious. I love enjoying mine with almond milk and fresh fruit or yoghurt, although it tastes really delicious as a snack on it’s own.
This is so simple to throw together too, I like to make a big batch on Sunday and enjoy throughout the week. It’s perfect to keep on standby for guilt free snacking too.
It really easy so easy to make and the best part is you have full control of what goes into it.
Perfect for the festive season and good for you. This spiced gingerbread granola also makes lovely homemade gifts.
This gingerbread granola recipe is also gluten free and vegan as long as you use gluten free oats.
