Pumpkin Granola

I have been on a major granola kick lately. It is so easy to make, uses ingredients that are always stocked in my kitchen and makes my apartment smell AMAZING. Seriously, better than any fall candle I’ve found. My favorite way to eat granola is on top of apple slices with a smear of almond butter. It is the perfect hearty snack.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1.5  cups raw pecans, roughly chopped 
  • 3 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, pecans, brown sugar, salt and pumpkin pie spice
  3. In a small saucepan, mix coconut oil, maple syrup and pumpkin puree over low heat until combined
  4. Let cool slightly and pour mixture over dry ingredients. Mix until combined
  5. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and spread oat mixture between the two sheets
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown (will get more crispy when it cools)
  7. Store in an airtight container and store in your pantry or on the counter for up to a few weeks
