Hands in the air if you feel the need to eat a little healthier today?! ??
I know I can’t be the only one who may have eaten one too many sweets last night. Halloween or not, I’m absolutely guilty of having a never-satisfied sweet tooth. Which means I’m always looking for healthier snacks.
You’re going to fall for this one, too. Easy Autumn Spice Granola is JUST what we need this season. It’s everything you want in a granola:
Have you made homemade granola before? I cannot believe this is my first homemade granola recipe on the blog! One of the best on-the-go breakfasts is homemade granola bars, IMO (and I have a few favorites here – Apple, High Fiber, Cherry Almond).
But why oh why has it taken so long to make actual granola? But now – finally! – there are endless possibilities with this Easy Autumn Spice Granola.
- yogurt topping (too obvious?)
- quick snack
- dip a banana in peanut butter and roll it in granola!
- top a baked apple
- pour on some milk and grab a spoon!
- bake into a breakfast bread
- top french toast or pancakes
The rest of fall has never tasted so good.
I absolutely love Easy Autumn Spice Granola for its simple ingredients, its subtle warmness from the fall spices, and the texture! What gives it all these fabulous qualities, you ask?
Autumn Spice Granola Magic Ingredients
Yes, my friend, all these lovely ingredients come together to make a crunchy, yet chewy, and subtly sweet granola. The maple syrup definitely gives the mix a sweetness, but it’s not overpowering. Just the way I like it – what about you?
Given that this granola is all about the fall flavors and food, of course, there are pecans and pumpkin seeds mixed in. Both add a lovely crunch and nutty flavor. I usually buy salted pepita seeds, but I know you want to up the game so go ahead and use your homemade toasted pumpkin seeds.
Now – the special additions: apple chips and toasted coconut.
The toasted coconut now…whoa. More subtle sweetness to the mix from the slightly caramelized coconut flakes is SUCH a great addition. I’m definitely not biased in that statement. So. Good.
And you need to make it now.Print
