Granola is one of those go to snacks that makes you feel healthy just talking about it. The kind of thing you can buy in bulk and use as a crunchy topping on a yogurt parfait or ice cream sundae. The thing is, most store bought granola has a LOT of sugar. With a recipe this easy, delicious and less sugar than store bought brands - I vote to skip the store bought and opt for homemade.

Ingredients

  • 1/2c coconut oil
  • 1/2c honey
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • 2T molasses
  • 1/2tsp salt
  • 1T pumpkin pie spice (cinnamon, ginger, allspice, clove, nutmeg, mace)
  • 3c rolled oats
  • 1c sliced almonds (optional)
  • 1c dried/chopped fruit (optional)
  • Pan Spray

Prepare

  • Preheat Oven to 250 degrees. 
  • In a small pot, melt coconut oil with honey, vanilla & molasses.  
  • In a large bowl stir together oats, salt and nuts if using.
  • Once oil mix is warm, stir into the oat mixture until thoroughly coated.
  • Allow the liquid to absorb and then sprinkle the pumpkin pie spice on it just until it sticks.
  • Lay out on a parchment lined sheet tray sprayed with pan spray and bake for about 20-30 minutes or until golden brown/almonds are toasted.
  • Allow to dry and toast, stirring throughout the process. 
  • You want to move it around on the tray to allow it to dry evenly.
  • Pull and cool at room temperature. 
  • If it isn’t crispy/toasted, put back in the oven until dry.
