‘Tis the season for Christmas-themed granola!
What’s better than ordinary granola? Gingerbread Cookie Spice Granola! Duh!
I feel like post-Thanksgiving is for all things Christmas. I’m not one to celebrate Christmas immediately after Halloween. There’s just something wrong about putting up the Christmas tree while autumn leaves are still on the trees. However, once Thanksgiving comes to an end and all the turkey leftovers are gone, all hail Christmas treats 🙂
So what’s my favorite Christmas treat? By far gingerbread! And of any kind, too – give me gingerbread or gingerbread cookies, and I will surely be happy.
So what’s your favorite Christmas treat?
