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!
