Vegan Christmas: Granola Stuffing Balls

There are two reasons why I was excited when Rollagranola got in touch to introduce me to its granola range: firstly, I love granola but I rarely buy it as most granola products (in the mainstream supermarkets near me) contain honey so they’re not vegan (and unlikely to be ethical) so I try to avoid them; and secondly, I’ve had my eye on making a granola-based stuffing recipe for Christmas, so it was perfect timing.
