This healthy homemade Gingerbread Granola recipe is really easy to make. It makes a lovely holiday gift or Christmas breakfast. Made with molasses, maple syrup, coconut oil, and spices.
Every day I pinch myself because I get to do what I love for a living. One thing I will never get used to is creating seasonal recipes way in advance.
This week I've been making holiday recipes and it's only mid-August at the time of writing this. In the past I've been late to the party frantically creating seasonal recipes at the last minute.
This year I have so many that I have to start posting them way in advance. How's that for progress!
Actually, I feel a bit like a Costco warehouse, with seasonal recipes posted right after Halloween.
Last year I planned on starting early, but fractured my ankle, resulting in being in a wheelchair for a couple of months. Luckily, I was able to get a few seasonal recipes done, but not as many as I was hoping to.
So this year I'm starting way in advance so I won't be caught off guard. I thought it would be hard to get in the holiday spirit this early, but after making this Gingerbread Granola and some other festive recipes, I'm coming around.
Anything gingerbread flavored puts me in a happy place.
For this healthy homemade granola, I used only gluten free rolled oats, but you could add nuts, dried fruit, or whatever you like. I ate mine with some chopped pecans.
