Festive Christmas Granola

(Or any time of the year that you feel like granola!)
Give the gift of health with my Festive Christmas Granola!

Mmm.. my kitchen smells seriously amazing right now! I’ve almost already demolished my own jar with just a spoon, no yoghurt or milk required!
The festive season is all about giving, and at this time of the year there is always a surplus of food around to over-indulge in. So I am balancing out the naughty gifts with some little healthy gifts; and you can too! This fresh batch of Festive Christmas Granola is ready to love the kitchens of all of my beautiful friends.

  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup dried fruit (optional) I like to use sultanas, cranberries and sliced apricot
