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.
