Introduction

It’s been such an awful year that I think we’re all looking forward to having something to celebrate at the end of it.

If you are like me though and are totally not quite ready to put your tree up and start playing Christmas carols, this is the recipe for you.

This magical granola is gluten free, nut free, refined sugar free and vegan, and will fill your house with the scent of Christmas spirit while it bakes.

Sitting down to a bowl of this granola feels like you should be snuggled up in front of a stocking-hung chimney, waiting for Santa.

It would also make a fabulous homemade gift, in a jar with a pretty ribbon.
Hmmmm…

As always, I’d love to know if you make it, so tag me in your photos or leave a review on my recipe.

Enjoy!
