Christmas Granola

Living in Australia often means I sometimes miss out on a lot of the Christmas treats people online talk about. It's currently forty degrees and eating anything hot is just not going to happen, however I found myself craving those traditional Christmas flavours I keep seeing. Thus, I found a way to combine Christmas with something cold!

What You'll Need:

  • 2 cups oats
  • 5 medjool dates
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp ginger 
  • ½ cup cranberries
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

What You'll Need To Do
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. 
  2. In a food processor, combine one of the cups of oats, dates, vanilla and the spices. Pulse briefly so it gets nice and mixed together.
  3. Lay the ingredients out on a tray lined with baking paper.
  4. Sprinkle the other cup of oats and cranberries on top and mix well.
  5. Pour out the maple syrup on top, ensuring to cover evenly.
  6. Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Store in an air-tight container for up to five days.
  8. Serve with some banana ice-cream for a refreshing Christmas-y treat - enjoy!
