Chocolate Gingerbread Granola

The smell of this baking was unreal!!  The pieces of ginger add a perfect zing to the granola!  This is comfort food!

Chocolate Gingerbread Granola
2 cups rolled oats (I used Rogers Porridge Oats)
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup ground flaxseed (I Used whole)
1/3 cup shredded coconut
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup candied ginger chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup chocolate chips, chopped

Preheat oven to 375.
In a large bowl, combine oats, flax, wheat germ, coconut, ginger, chocolate and sea salt. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves, and combine. Pour spices into bowl of oats and mix well. In a separate bowl, mix honey, molasses and vanilla.  Add honey mixture to oat mixture and stir until moistened. If you need more moisture, add honey 1 teaspoon at a time.
Lay on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, flipping every 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown and toasty. Watch closely so granola doesn’t burn. Remove from oven and let cool completely.

Makes 22-1/4 cup servings
