Next time you make granola – this is ginger-orange granola is a must try!
My house smelled like orange cinnamon rolls – it was mouthwatering!
This granola has such nice flavoring, especially with the orange zest. I love zest of any kind, so the addition of the orange zest is welcome. The zest toasts up just perfectly along with the other ingredients.
And, when you get a bite of the toasted sesame seeds, they add another layer of deliciousness.
We have another easy granola recipe to add to the list, it’s low fat and gluten free. I just love a good healthy granola and I think you’ll love this one too. Enjoy the aroma and the taste!
This was terrific as a cereal with diced mango and unsweetened almond milk. I can see this being a great granola muesli mix for overnight oats too. Might even be good with some fresh squeezed orange juice as your liquid. So simple and delicious!

- Category: Snack
- Cuisine: Vegan
- 2 1/2 cups rolled oats (I used GF)
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 2/3 cup almonds
- 1/3 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 3 tablespoons sesame seeds
- 3 tablespoons hemp hearts, ground flax seeds or chia seeds
- 1 heaping teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- zest of 1 – 2 oranges, chopped fine or left as is
- 2/3 – 3/4 cups pure maple syrup
- coconut oil, to grease
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Add in your maple syrup and mix well to coat. On a greased rimmed cookie sheet, lay granola in a single layer. You may need to use 2 rimmed sheets. Place sheets in oven and cook for 30 – 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so to ensure even toasting.
Once done, remove from oven, let cool completely, store in an airtight container for up to a month.
Let this be a template, add/subtract anything you like. If you’re missing an ingredient you may add extra of something else you do have on hand. I like lots of zest and added the zest of 2 oranges.
