Gingerbread Granola

dsc_0089The 2nd Christmas granola I made to send out with gifts was gingerbread granola. I absolutely love the flavor of gingerbread and this granola was no exception! I’ll be eating the leftovers with my breakfast yogurt to get me in the holiday spirit each morning.




  • 4 cups oats
  • 3 cups raw nuts (I used whole almonds, pecans, and walnuts)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbs cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbs molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 325 F
  • Mix oats and nuts together in a bowl
  • Mix together olive oil, maple syrup, molasses, vanilla extract, and spices. Pour over the oats and nuts and mix till everything is coated.
  • Spread the mixture over a baking sheet and bake for ~20 minutes, stirring ever 5 minutes, until the mixture browns.
  • Cool completely before storing, keep in an airtight container.
