Today Christmas granola is the last new recipe for my Gifts from the Kitchen week.  However, tomorrow I have a round up of other ideas from my archives.  There is a lot of good choices if you are still looking for one. We are finishing off the new recipes for this year with this simple granola recipe that includes those flavors you find at this time of year – molasses, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and cranberries.  It really is a Christmas granola full of Christmas flavor!

Here’s how to make this tasty granola!

It begins with combining some oats, wheat germ, sesame seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, almonds, coconut and craisins together in a large bowl. Then you combine some oil, molasses, honey, brown sugar, and salt in a sauce pan. Cook this over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved. Add in some vanillacinnamonginger, and allspice. Mix until it’s all well combined. Now add the oil mixture to the dry out mixture and stir together until evenly coated.

Spread the mixture out over a 10 x 15 inch jelly roll pan. Cook at 275 for 45 minutes carefully giving it a stir every 15 minutes. Then increase the heat to 325 degrees and bake for another 15 minutes. Give it a good stir and let it cool. Stir it again after it has had a little time to cool. I find that this helps from ending up with a big clump of granola. Just stir it occasionally as it cools. Place in a cut air tight container and you have a wonderful gift made from the kitchen!
