You are here: Home Food & Kitchen Recipes Ginger-Molasses Granola Ginger-Molasses Granola by rachelshulman June 9, 2010, 3:46 am 3 Comments Last month I posted a recipe for peanut butter banana granola. Here’s a zippy ginger-molasses version for those of you who like a bit of spice in the morning. [social_buttons] 6 cups of old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking or instant) 1 cup of walnut halves and pieces 1 cup of slivered almonds 1 cup of shredded coconut 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon Dash of salt 1/2 cup of honey (or maple syrup) 1/2 cup of molasses 2-3 tablespoons of fresh ginger juice or store-bought ginger juice (such as Ginger People) 1/2 cup of chopped crystallized ginger Heat the oven to 325 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the oats, nuts, coconut, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside. Combine the honey, molasses, and ginger juice in a smaller bowl and blend well using a fork. Add the honey mixture to the oat mixture and stir to combine, using a large spoon or your hands. Spread the mixture evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, stir the granola, and set on a rack to cool. Add the crystallized ginger pieces. Stir the granola once in a while it comes to room temperature. Don’t judge the taste of the granola while it’s hot – the flavor develops as the granola cools (it tastes best the next day). Transfer to a sealed container and store in the refrigerator for up to one month. Makes 8-9 cups. Image courtesy of little blue hen via a Creative Commons license.
