Christmas Granola

Christmas is right around the corner, and this is my go-to recipe for granola that'll get everyone into the holiday spirit. This salty-sweet mix is perfect in a bowl of mylk, scattered over some vegan yoghurt or ice cream, or just by itself. Pack them into little bags and it'll make for great gifts that are sure to please your friends and family, regardless of their dietary requirements.

You might want to double or even triple the recipe. It won't last long...

Active Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Ready in: 90 minutes

Ingredients

Dry

  • 250 g rolled oats
  • 30 g pistachios
  • 10 g sliced almonds
  • 40 g pumpkin seeds
  • 75 g coconut flakes

Wet

  • 8 g salt
  • 110 g brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

After baking

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, sliced

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160ÂșC.

  2. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

  3. Add all the wet ingredients to a pot and heat, stirring, just until the sugar is dissolved.

  4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and mix well.

  5. Spread onto a baking tray and bake for 40 minutes or until the oats are lightly golden, stirring halfway through.

  6. Allow to cool, then mix the cranberries through.

  7. Enjoy!

This makes for a delicious snack, but feel free to customize it your way. I've included a couple of my favorite variations below to up your granola game.

Variation A - Spicy Santa

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp clove powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg powder

Add all the spices into the dry ingredients in Step 2.

Variation B - Christmas Choco

  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 30 g dark chocolate buttons

Add cocoa powder into the dry ingredients in Step 2. Mix in 30 g chocolate buttons after baking and after the granola cools down.
