How do you get into the holiday spirit? Bake holiday cookies of course...if you want to be basic. But you’re not basic, right? No, you’re better than cookies. You’re glorious! Just like this vegan, refined oil free Gingerbread Granola.
This healthy granola is basically the holidays in snack form. Filling oats, nuts and seeds are coated in warming spices and blackstrap molasses. It’s packed with healthy fats, fiber, and is even a good source of fiber, but this granola is so delicious, you’d never know it! Snacking on this granola is like taking a bite out of a gingerbread house.
If that’s not enough to make you want to immediately throw on jingle bells and bake this granola, this granola is also as clustery and crunchy as can be. Thanks to a few tricks that you can read more in depth about here, you’ll be enjoying giant granola chunks in no time. If you’re not a chunky granola fan then you can always break it into smaller pieces…Scrooge.
It’s also a great meal prep option for a breakfast, snack, or dessert! It lasts on the counter for weeks and even longer in the freezer. With just a few minutes of hands on time, your oven does nearly all of the work. You’ll be able to use that baking time to get into the holiday spirit like drinking hot chocolate, cutting snowflakes, or picking up pine needles off the floor from your already dying Christmas tree.
Enjoy this granola with milk, over yogurt, or by the handful on the go. It also makes a great homemade gift (if you don’t mind sharing, that is). However you eat it, with this granola around, you’ll always be in the holiday spirit.
