Blogmas Festive Granola Recipe

Christmas is all about those spices and indulging in yummy luxury ingredients. I love using pecans and brazil nuts at this time of year. Cinnamon is also one of those festive flavours that adds a cheeky sweetness during the dark winter mornings.  I have therefore created a subtly but warmly spiced granola that will feel like such a treat at breakfast time! This recipe should keep you going for many breakfasts…. depending on how many helpings you have!


  • 400g oats
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 50g brazil nuts
  • 50g walnuts
  • 50g almonds
  • 50g pecans
  • 2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 ½ tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 125g cranberries


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a microwave or a small saucepan.
  • Roughly chop the nuts and mix all the ingredients together (except for the cranberries) in a large bowl. I recommend using half jumbo and half porridge oats for a varied texture.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and pat the mixture down on the tray with the back of a spoon.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  • Stir the mixture and then bake for a further 5-10 minutes until golden but not too dark.
  • Leave the granola to cool completely.
  • Stir in the cranberries and store the granola in an airtight container.

I hope you enjoyed this granola recipe. It is really delicious and I am already expecting to have to make my next batch very soon!
