Christmas Homemade Granola
This Christmas Homemade Granola recipe is loaded up with the delicious flavours of the holiday season. Naturally vegan and gluten-free and super easy to make!
- 400 g rolled oats / jumbo oats I use certified gluten-free oats
- 100 g peeled pistachio
- 6 tbsp maple syrup
- 4 tbsp coconut oil melted
- 100 g dried soft cranberries
- ½ tsp orange essence or pure vanilla extract
- A pinch of sea salt
Pre-heat oven to 140ºC/120ºC fan oven.
In a large bowl mix together oats, pistachio and salt.
Add coconut oil and maple syrup into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly until combined.
Spread the granola mixture on a large non-stick baking tray.
Bake for 40 minutes, gently stirring the mixture with a spatula every 15 mins or so. Do not over stir, as this prevents the granola clusters from forming.
Remove from the oven and mix in the dried cranberries. Return to the oven and bake for a further 10 minutes, until granola is golden and crunchy.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Break into clusters and enjoy for breakfast or as a snack during the day.
