Gingerbread Granola, a breakfast or snack you can prep in under 10 minutes! Pair with some vanilla Greek yogurt or dairy/soy milk for a high protein meal.
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 ½ -2 tsp ground dried ginger (use 2 tsp if you like a stronger ginger flavour)
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground cloves
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 tbsp molasses
- 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups nuts (I used a mix of pecans, almonds and walnuts)
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, spices, and salt.
Next, add in the melted coconut oil, molasses, maple syrup and vanilla. Mix well then fold in the mixed nuts.
Add the granola to the lined baking sheet and spread into an even layer.
Bake for 10 minutes, remove and mix around the granola in order to cook evenly. Return to the oven for an additional 8-10 minutes until the granola is slightly golden and the nuts look toasted.
Let cool completely on the baking tray. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Enjoy!
Makes about 6-8 servings for a meal, more for snacking.
