3 Simple Christmas Breakfast Ideas

Christmas morning is all about spending time with family, having a festive breakfast or brunch, unwrapping gifts, and participating in your favorite holiday activities. Today, we are sharing three delightful granola-based Christmas breakfast and brunch dishes to get you started on the right foot for the holiday.

Crunchy Peanut Butter Granola Bars

If you've never made granola bars before, this is a perfect way to start. These crunchy chocolate chips peanut butter granola bars are healthy, vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free. 

So what's the best part? They only take about 10 mins to make and will keep you munching for up to 2 weeks.

Peanut Bars Granola Cluster


  • Paleo Chocolate Nutybite Granola 
  • Peanut butter
  • 80 ml maple syrup 
  • 60 ml coconut oil 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • Pumpkin seeds – you could also use other small nuts. 
  • Pumpkin spice blend – or just add some cinnamon for flavor.
  • ¼ tsp alt

    How to make:

    To begin, melt the peanut butter, maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, constantly stirring until the mixture is smooth and creamy. This mix is going to hold the granola bars together. Then, combine the granola clusters, pumpkin seeds, spice, and salt in a wide mixing bowl. Pour the liquid mixture over the granola and swirl to blend until well mixed and the granola is coated. Allow the mixture to chill for 10 minutes in the refrigerator.

    Transfer the mixture to a baking sheet and press it down firmly with a spatula or the back of a glass. In a preheated 180°C oven, bake for 20-25 minutes. When the edges of the granola bars have browned and peeled away from the sides, they are ready.

    Cool the pan for 10 minutes before removing the parchment paper and transferring it to the refrigerator. Leave it for 1 hour. Then, remove it from the fridge and cut it into 12 rectangle bars.

    Gingerbread Granola

    This dish is easy, requiring only 8 ingredients and 30 minutes from start to finish. You may use any nuts you have on hand. We chose a combination of almonds, pecans, and walnuts.

    Ginger Bread Granola Clusters


    • Turmeric Ginger Nutybite Granola
    • ¼ tsp sea salt
    • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
    • ¾ tsp ground ginger
    • 60 ml coconut or olive oil
    • 80 ml maple syrup
    • 30 ml molasses
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract 

      How to make:

      Preheat the oven to 180°C. In a large mixing basin, combine the dry ingredients. Warm the coconut oil, maple syrup, molasses, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Pour over the dry ingredients and thoroughly combine.

      Bake for 18–22 minutes, spreading the mixture evenly on a wide baking sheet. The coconut oil will help this granola crisp up nicely, but keep an eye on it because it browns rapidly. Remove the granola from the oven and allow it to cool fully on the pan before storing. It should keep for a few weeks if stored in an airtight container.

      Banana Toast With Granola And Honey

      Bananas, almond butter, and honey together are kind of a match made in heaven. The granola creates a pleasing crunch, and the nutrient-dense chia seeds will keep you satisfied until lunch. They offer a tremendous punch while remaining true to the flavour of your meal. So go ahead and sprinkle away to get your morning started correctly!

      The options for toppings are limitless. It goes well with a variety of nut butter, sliced fruit, and granola. And if you're having guests around for brunch, you won't have to worry about what to serve.

      Banana Toast Granola Cluster


      • Cocoa Maca Nutybite Granola
      • 2 slices whole wheat or your favorite type of bread
      • 3 tsp almond butter
      • 1 banana, sliced
      • 2 tsp honey
      • 2 tsp chia seeds

      How to make:

      Toast the bread and immediately lay it on a cooling rack. 

      Note: If you place the toast directly on a plate, the bottom will steam and get mushy. Once slightly cooled, spread almond butter evenly on bread. Top with sliced banana and granola, then drizzle with honey and sprinkle with chia seeds.

      If you give any of these recipes a try, let us know on Instagram (#goodforeverything) or Facebook. We certainly plan to make this granola many times in the winter and hope you will, too.

       Happy holidays!
