Cookies for breakfast? Yes! Well, kinda. Ok, not really. But we did take everything you love about warm, spicy gingerbread with it’s molasses-spiked and cinnamon-scented goodness and made it into a crunchy and satisfying granola suitable for breakfast, snacking and gift giving.
Adding a handful of fruit juice-sweetened cranberries lends a beautiful color to the mix and a lovely tart flavor that pairs well with the ginger, allspice and cloves that gives gingerbread it’s unmistakeable flavor.
Make a batch (or three) today to have on hand for sprinkling over bowls of plain yogurt with pomegranate or gifting to teachers, neighbors and friends.
