Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon all spice
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • pinch sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Pour oats into a large bowl and add cinnamon, ginger, all spice, and nutmeg.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt coconut oil until it is a liquid. Add syrup, molasses and vanilla to that same bowl and stir to combine. Last, stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then spread oats evenly out onto the sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from the oven, sprinkle granola with salt and wait 5-10 minutes before breaking up and enjoying!

Notes

*Adding the chocolate in with everything and then baking allows the chocolate to melt, so it combines nicely with the gingerbread. HOWEVER, if you want, you can omit the chocolate chips and just bake the gingerbread granola as-is, and then add the chocolate chips in once the granola has baked. This way, the chocolate won't melt and you'll have whole chocolate chips. Both ways are delicious!
