Vanilla Shortbread Cookie Granola {gf,v,rsf}

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

Holiday granola recipes? Of course. There are so many ways to spice up granola, and if you have noticed from all my other granola recipes, I love granola! This flavor is one of my favorites because it tastes just like the classic shortbread christmas cookies. It's loaded with some of my fave staples, such as oats, almonds, cashews, almond butter, seeds, pure vanilla, pure maple syrup, and even gluten free pretzels for an extra crunch. Not only is this granola loaded with nutrient dense ingredients and tastes delicious, but it's extremely easy to make; done baking in under 25 minutes! Not to mention, this recipe is gluten free, vegan, and refined sugar free. It's a must have!
