  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Combine oats, pecans, pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts, flaxmeal, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves in a medium bowl.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, almond butter, molasses, and salt.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix well until everything is coated evenly.
  • Pour granola onto baking sheet (parchment lined if preferred, but it won't stick either way) in one even layer.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Add the dried cranberries and crystalized ginger, stir well, and bake another 15-20 minutes until crunchy.
  • Place the baking sheet on a cooling rack. Sprinkle the chocolate chips all over the top of the granola and let cool. 
  • Once the granola is cool, stir to incorporate the chocolate chips. They will have melted a bit while sitting on the warm granola so the gooey chocolate will be distributed throughout all of mixture. If you would rather have non-melty whole chocolate chips - wait to add the chocolate chips until the granola is fully cooled. 
  • Granola will continue to crisp up after baking.
