Easy Autumn Spice Granola


A super easy, homemade granola with lots of texture, crunch, and fall favorites: apple chips, pecans, and coconut!



  • 1/2 cup neutral or coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 3/4 cup apple chips
  • 3/4 cup coconut flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a large edged baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. In a separate bowl, add oats and pecans. Stir together with wet ingredients until combined. Spread evenly across baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through and pressing into an even layer.
  3. Meanwhile, toast coconut in a skillet over low-medium heat for 6-8 minutes until slightly golden brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
  4. Once granola has finished baking (it will still appear wet), stir in apple chips and coconut. Press down into an even layer and let cool completely. Once granola is cooled, break into granola chunks and store in an airtight container.


I usually use vegetable or canola oil – but you can also use a very mild olive oil or coconut oil to make it even healthier!

Adjust salt as needed if pecans and pumpkin seeds are salted.
