Fall Harvest Chunky Granola
This Fall Harvest Chunky Granola is the best granola you’ll have this season! It’s packed with spices but in a non-overpowering way. It has a good mix of healthy nuts and seeds, and just the perfect dose of sweetness thanks to the maple syrup.
- 3 cups rolled oats
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/2 cup pepitas
- 3/4 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup peanuts
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup apple cider optional
- 2 tsp pumpkin spice
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
In a bowl combine oats, chopped walnuts, pepitas, dried cranberries and peanuts. Mix in the pumpkin spice and set aside.
In a sauce pan over medium heat mix coconut oil, maple syrup and vanilla. Add apple cider, if using, and bring to a soft boil. Let it boil for around 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and pour over the bowl of oats. Mix until everything is coated in maple sugar.
Spread the granola in a baking tray and take to the oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and toss and turn. Return to the oven and bake fro 20 more minutes. Repeat the process 2 more times or until the granola is golden brown.
Let it cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
