Gingerbread Granola with Maple Spiced Almond Milk

This Gingerbread Granola is seriously delicious with its perfect blend of nuts and indulgent spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger, paired with a hint of salt. This festive granola is drool-worthy on its own but even BETTER when served up with homemade creamy maple spiced almond milk.

The gingerbread granola and maple spiced almond milk is perfect for your Christmas morning breakfast or served up individually. The maple-spiced almond milk is fantastic warmed up for a holiday steamer or added to your morning coffee for a Christmas twist.

Pro Tip: Not only does the gingerbread granola taste amazing but it also doubles as the perfect hostess gift for the holidays! All you have to do is put the granola in a jar, tie a ribbon around the lid and include a hand-written note for a homemade touch!

All of the spices, nuts, and most of the dry ingredients can also be found at Bulk Barn where you can purchase everything in bulk to not only cut down on your cost (the holidays can get pricey!), but you can also save on packaging by bringing in your own reusable container!! Plus, if you gift the granola, let your hostess know she can reuse her container at Bulk Barn!

  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • For the Maple Spiced Almond Milk
  • 1 cup raw almonds, soaked for at least 8 hours or overnight

Instructions

    For the Gingerbread Granola

    This sounds delicious! Any suggestions on a nut free substitute for the pecans and walnuts in the granola?

    How long would the granola last in a jar? aka how far in advance can I make it before gifting…and then how soon should I tell people they need to eat it? Thank you!

    Are the almonds soaked in the 3 1/2 cups of filtered water(as stated in the ingredients list) overnight or do you add the 3 1/2 cups of filtered water to the already soaked almonds?
    Thanks

    Hey guys!

    This sounds amazing and something I need living in Australia and missing the comfort of winter with the festive season coming.
    Just a question on your insta stories today Jillian you mentioned an almond milk maker?! Just wondering if you could expand on that more. And also in line three for the recipe transfer is missing the f ?
    Thanks for sharing life and stuff xx

    Yumm!! Sounds delicious. Do you think steel cut oats would be interchangeable with this?

  11. Joanna

    November 15th, 2018 at 9:49 pm

    I made the granola tonight and it is delicious!!!! Cannot wait to try the almond milk tomorrow after the almonds have soaked overnight.
