Winter Granola Two Ways – Baked in Oven or Toasted on Stovetop in 10 minutes

Healthy Granola with fruits, nuts and seeds | With A Spin


It’s the most wonderful time of the year and I want to wish each of you all the very best of the season.  I hope you are enjoying the time with family and friends with the activities that fulfill you most.  For me, with all the winter holidays, break from work, quality time with family and friends, and good cheers, even though I do not celebrate Christmas, it’s the happiest time of the year.  We are kicking off the holidays in a delicious and nutritious way to celebrate the best of the season with homemade granola.  The granola is loaded with fiber, protein, healthy fats and essential vitamins and minerals.  The aroma of nutmeg completes the granola and adds warmth to each spoon.

Crunchy, flavorful and with a hint of sweetness, these granola are brimming with rolled oats, quinoa, almonds, coconut, pine nuts, sesame seeds, flax seeds, and dried fruits. This granola is our favorite breakfast for the season.  We can’t help but start eating the granola in the morning even before the coffee maker finishes brewing. I can’t stop munching them as snack throughout the day.

The ingredients I used are what my family prefers.  Feel free to substitute any combination of nuts, seeds and fruits.  Substitution the maple syrup for agave nectar or more honey.  Don’t like nutmeg, no issues.  Use cinnamon or cardamom.  You get the point?  This is YOUR granola. Make it the way you like it.  Experiment with the ingredients.

Wrap up the granola in a nice jar and tie up with a ribbon for a delicious gift anyone would enjoy.  The granola taste fabulous over yogurt or milk.  Keep for up to four weeks stored in an airtight container at room temperature.  Store in refrigerator if you would like to keep longer.

    I used to make stovetop granola…not sure why I haven’t in so long! I will try your recipe this time – looks delicious.

    No real Christmas traditions around here…it’s more of a challenge trying to keep everyone busy when things are closed. :)

    Have a great day Lail!
