Gingerbread Granola Clusters make the perfect festive snack with all the classic gingerbread flavors.
I love making a big batch of homemade granola and usually change up the different flavor variations for us to snack on through the week.
It’s so much healthier than anything from the store plus it’s so easy to make!
This gingerbread granola is a great way to start off the day with a warm and Christmas-y feel. It has all of the classic gingerbread flavors with a nutty crunch in every bite.

To get the giant clusters takes a little bit more patience.
DO NOT break up or stir the granola while it’s baking.
Let it do it’s thing in the oven for 40 minutes and rotate the pan halfway, then remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely in the pan for at least 30 minutes.
Once it’s cool down, then you can break up the pieces as large or small as you like.
I can never resist picking out the clusters first whenever I’m around a bowl of granola.
- slivered almonds
- toasted coconut flakes
- white/ dark/ semi-sweet chocolate chips
Divide them out and package them up to hand out to share with your friends and family. These would make great gifts for any granola lover. That’s if you can resist not snacking on them before they’re all gone.
