Our homemade granola is infused with a wealth of holiday flavor and hits every note on the salty-sweet-chewy-crunchy spectrum. Use any combination of nuts you like – though we love the pop of green from the pistachios. Fresh rosemary adds a rustic edge and earthiness, while silky molasses adds depth of flavor and a subtle sweetness reminiscent of gingerbread. This festive granola is the perfect edible gift when wrapped in a holiday bag or piled high in a mason jar. One serving boasts a hearty 3 grams of fiber and 6 grams of plant-powered protein. Now that’s a gift that keeps on giving!
3 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup hazelnuts
1/2 cup shelled pistachios
2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil (or canola oil)
2 tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup dried goji berries
2/3 cup butterscotch morsels
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 325°F. Lightly coat a sheet pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large bowl, add dry ingredients; oats through salt. Toss to combine. Set aside.
Heat maple syrup, coconut oil, and molasses in a small saucepan over medium-low. Once coconut oil is melted, remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
Pour wet ingredients into dry. Toss to combine. Spread evenly on prepared sheet pan.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, tossing once halfway through, until golden brown and toasted. Allow to cool completely (about 1 hour) before mixing in goji berries and butterscotch morsels. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
