It’s that time of year. The holidays begun!
You’ve got almost an entire month of December to bake your desired goodies! #yum
My favourite time of year to bake, be in the kitchen and explore a variety of recipes!
Thank you to @bulkbarnfoods for making my holiday shopping recipe ingredients super easy and affordable! To all my Canadian friends, check out Bulk Barn for your fresh ingredients and to save some money, because baking can get a little pricey.
I try to make all my recipes with a few ingredients and lots of all natural wholesome foods to make my dessert super healthy to enjoy and be guilt-free and to fuel my day.
This holiday I’ve created a list of all the recipes I want to try out and put a twist of my own to it. Hope you all can follow along and create a very merry holiday with only healthy goodies to treat yourself and your beautiful family and friends! They all deserve healthy treats!
Baking = Gatherings this Holiday
Make these recipes with your family and/or friends. Not sure what to do this holiday, host a baking gathering with your friends! It is so much fun! It is a perfect way to spend some quality time and share your creativity during the holidays!

Here is Recipe #3: Holiday Spiced Granola
This delicious Holiday Spiced Granola is super simple and a lot of fun to make, especially when you personalized it.

Favourite way to serve this Holiday Spiced Granola is by adding it to my morning coconut yogurt, adding it as a topper to my oatmeal, and adding it to waffles and pancakes! Be creative!

Holiday Spiced GranolaPrint This
- 1 Cup of Gluten Free Oats
- 1 Cup of Almond Slices
- 1/4 Cup Pecan Halves
- 1/4 Cup Walnut Halves
- 1/4 Cup Raw Pumpkin Seeds
- 4 Tbsp Shredded Coconut (optional)
- 1 Tsp of Cinnamon
- 1/4 Tsp of Nutmeg
- 1/4 Tsp of Ground Ginger
- 1/4 Tsp of Allspice
- Pinch of Pink Salt
- 1/2 Cup of Dried Cranberries
- 1/2 Cup of Chopped Apricots
- 1/4 Cup of Melted Coconut Oil
- 1/4 Cup of Maple Syrup
- 2 Tbsp Blackstrap Molasses
- 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract (optional)
- 1 Tbsp if Coconut Sugar
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
- In a small saucepan over medium low heat, warm the coconut oil, maple syrup, molasses and vanilla extract. Pour over the dry ingredients and mix well.
- Spread the mixture evenly onto a a large baking sheet and bake for 18–22 minutes, stirring near the halfway point to ensure even cooking. The coconut oil will help this granola crisp up nicely, but be sure to watch it carefully as it browns quickly.
- Once the granola is visibly browned (about 17 minutes for me), remove from the oven and let cool completely on the pan before storing.
