Holiday Ginger Granola

I made this granola for the holidays initially, to give as a gift from the heart.

The recipe is quite simple, and it's all in how you mesh the ingredients together. I was thinking holidays, warmth, colourful, spicey when I came up with this granola recipe so I hope I inspire you to make this yourself - if not, I will be selling it soon ;)

Perfect for a topping on yogurt, breakfast cereal like amaranth porridge, or just a little snack with some hot ginger tea!

Holiday Ginger Granola - this makes a lot so use a large bake pan 

6 cups of rolled oats
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
3 cups of almonds
1 1/2 cups of pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup of sesame seeds
1/2 cup of dried cranberries
1/2 cup of dried ginger
1/4 cup of currants
1/2 cup of dried apricots
2 tbsp of cinnamon
1 tbsp of ground ginger
1/2 tsp of nutmeg
1/2 tsp of cloves
1/2 tsp of sea salt
1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
1/2 tsp of almond extract
1/2 cup of coconut oil (melted)
1/4 cup of honey
1/4 cup of maple syrup
1/8 cup of ginger syrup

• Preheat oven to 350°

• Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well (oats, almonds, nuts, seeds, spices etc)

• Combine wet ingredients (extracts, oil and syrups) in a bowl and pour into dry ingredients and stir until fully mixed

• Scoop on to an oven pan evenly - sprinkle with cinnamon & ginger or maple syrup lightly on top

• Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden, stir a bit halfway

• Remove and let cool - as it cools it will stick together nicely

• Add Apricots, Ginger, Currants and Cranberries once cooled and mix well
