Gingerbread Granola (Grain Free)

I love the way my house smells when I am baking something with ginger in it. Even more I love the taste of ginger in my baked goodies. One of my favorite snacks when I was fat was Ginger Snaps dunked in a glass of milk. This recipe reminds me of that snack. Instead I have a nutritious breakfast food.

Guess what I'm having for breakfast!!
