Holiday Granola

This is a bit off topic, but I wanted to share with you all my awesome Holiday Granola recipe 🙂

This year I made granola for friends and family and I took multiple recipes I found online, mashed them together and then adjusted accordingly. So if you like granola and want to try something new, here’s my recipe:


3 c. old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 c. wheat bran
1/3 c. flax seed meal
1/2 c. sunflower seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. all spice
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c. dark cocoa covered almonds chopped
1/2 c. chopped almonds (I just mix these with the almonds above in the food processor)
2 tsp. rum extract
1/2 c. maple syrup
1.5 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. coconut oil
1/3 c. dried cranberry


Preheat oven to 350

Combine dry ingredients (first 11) in large bowl

Combine the rest of the ingredients (save for cranberries) in a small bowl

Mix wet ingredients in to the dry ingredients bowl

Spread mixture evenly on a foil covered baking sheet (non-greased)

Bake for 10 minutes.

Take out and mix ingredients on the baking sheet

Bake for another 5-10 minutes until toasty, but not burnt

Take out of oven and return to large bowl

Stir in dried cranberries (or any other dried fruit you might like)

[Note] The image I used is not of my granola because I didn’t take pictures! It’s from here (also a good sounding recipe that I did not use in my mashup)
