Inspired by my first granola recipe on the blog (marzipan granola with dried blueberries), I wanted to create a variation that is perfect for these cold fall/winter days. So what would be better than making a crunchy granola that contains all the typical gingerbread flavors (cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger) and tastes totally like Christmas?

This vegan Gingerbread Granola

  • only needs 6 ingredients,
  • is super easy and quick to make,
  • can easily be made gluten-free by using gf oats
  • will get you right into the Christmas spirit!

I love how versatile oats are: granola, overnight oats or ground into oat flour and used for pancakes, waffles, etc. I don’t think there’s a grain more perfect for breakfast :)

If you store the granola in an air-tight glass jar (after letting it cool off), it will stay crunchy for weeks! Talk about fuss-free breakfast!
