Gingerbread Granola

Not quite gingerbread granola, but flavored with molasses, ginger, and cinnamon, it’s about the closest granola you’ll get to gingerbread. It’s quite a bit healthier than all of the stuff we crammed into our faces for Thanksgiving and we’ll be sure to eat in a few week for Christmas. Until then we’ll try to eat a little better when we can.

This was designed for breakfast with Greek yogurt and fruit, but it ended up being a great lunch instead, and I was completely ok with that. I could probably eat a yogurt parfait with homemade granola every single day for lunch and be pretty happy. Considering I already had all of the ingredients on hand from various things I’ve been making recently, it was more economical than buying a parfait from the campus coffee shop, that’s for sure!
