Gingerbread Granola

Here is a nice little granola recipe that goes wonderfully with a bowl of vanilla yogurt.  It would also be good mixed into cookies.  As an add on I used some chopped dates-just because I had some left from Christmas baking.  You could add in whatever you like or have at hand.
  • 3 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1 1/2  cups raw nuts
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 6 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons molasses
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  •  add ins: (your choice) 1 c. of any of the following:  candied ginger, raisins, dates, dried apricots
  • Mix together the oats, flaxseed, nuts, salt, cinnamon, ginger and cloves.   In   a separate container mix together the oil, maple syrup, molasses and vanilla.  Pour this mixture over the oat mixture and stir until well combined.  Cover a cooky sheet with a silipat or parchment paper.  Spoon granola onto the cooky sheet, spreading out well.  Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.  Stir and bake an additional 10 minutes.  Mix in add ins.
