Are you looking for a super easy gift for everyone on your list?

Christmas Gift Granola is a great gift to have ready for those spontaneous holiday pop-ins or to give your kid’s teachers!

This recipe is highly flexible. If you don’t have an ingredient simply substitute it for something you do have.

 

 

INGREDIENTS

½ cup dried cranberries

4 cups rolled oats

¼ cup honey

1/3 cup brown sugar

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp salt

1 tbsp vanilla extract

1 cup almonds (chopped)

1/3 cup melted coconut oil

 

DIRECTIONS

Melt the coconut oil, brown sugar, and honey together. Add in the cinnamon, salt, and extract.
Mix the liquid mixture with the rolled oats, and chopped almonds.
Place the granola mixture into the sprayed baking pan and bake for 30 minutes @ 300 degrees or until lightly golden brown.
Stir well every 10 minutes.
With 5 minutes cooking time remaining, add the dried cranberries and stir to combine.
Let cool completely. Break mixture into clusters.

If you want to make your Christmas Gift Granola extra Christmas-y add some red & green M&M’s or red & green chocolate chips after it has cooled completely.

Place granola in a pretty container and add a pretty ribbon and you will be ready with gifts for every unexpected (or even expected) guest!

Granola can also be kept in air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 weeks.

I reached 200 pounds after having my children and several things have led me down my path of wanting to be healthier and better for myself and for my family; countless fitness dvds, a gym membership, leading a weight management class at my church and a personal trainer telling me I had good symmetry.I have learned many things on my fitness journey, but the one thing that I hear over and over no matter what size they are, is the self-talk that many women tell themselves regarding the way they see themselves. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have the tools and wisdom of the people around me to help women of all shapes and dynamics to help them on their journey.
