I HEART GRANOLA!
Here is a granola recipe perfect for fall! Enjoy and let me know what you think!
2 ½ C. rolled oats (gluten free oats in needed)
¼. Ground flax seeds
¼ C. finely chopped pecans
¼ C. pepitas (small pumpkin seeds)
1 t. cinnamon
½ t. pumpkin pie spice (optional)
1/3 C. pure maple syrup
1/3 C. canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
3 T. coconut oil, melted
½ t. vanilla
Preheat oven to 300.
Blend the oats, nuts and ground flax seeds together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, whisk together maple syrup, canned pumpkin, coconut oil, vanilla and spices until well blended.
Stir in oat mixture. Place the mixture on a large baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30-40 minutes, until crispy and golden brown, not burnt. Stir twice during baking to avoid burning. Cool completely before serving. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. (This makes one tray of granola. Double if you are serving a larger crowd)
