Festive Fruit and Nut Granola

Christmas Fruit and Nut Granola in jar

This festive fruit and nut granola has it all. It tastes like Christmas in a bowl. It’s got the roasted nuts, the spices and the dried fruit. However, I think the star of this granola is the orange juice, which the granola is tossed in before baking.

The granola itself is really easy to prepare and doesn’t take a lot of time either. I love serving my granola with coconut yoghurt, a bit of oat milk as well as some fresh orange.

I hope you enjoy making this festive fruit and nut granola. Please let me know how you go in the comments and don’t forget to tag me on Instagram @nothangryanymore when sharing your creations. I love seeing them!

  1. We just talked about making our own granola yesterday. Can’t wait to try this. Any recommendations for subbing rice syrup? Maple syrup no good either. Would more molasses be suitable?

    1. You could definitely add more molasses if you wanted to. However, molasses is quite strong. A better substitute would be golden syrup.
      Hope you enjoy making and eating the granola!
