Oil Free Spicy Ginger Vanilla Granola - a quick and easy snack with a deliciously warm and spicy flavor everyone will love. Vegan, Gluten Free, Tasty!
This Oil Free Spicy Ginger Vanilla Granola is inspired by one of my most popular recipes on the blog - my Ginger Vanilla Protein Crunch Bars. Thanks to being featured on a few big sites (thank you Daily Burn and Cosmo!), those bars have been made by quite a few people. They are also one of our favorites. I make them so often I don't need to look at the recipe anymore.
I was recently asked if I could make an oil free version of these bars - same flavors and everything, minus oil. He explained that he has a goal to reduce oil in his diet, and these are his favorite bar to crumble over his yogurt every morning. I asked if he'd rather have granola? So here we are - an oil free granola with the same warm and spicy flavors as those bars we all love.
I will still try the oil free thing with the bars next time I make them -
