Grain-free pumpkin spice granola:

I am slowly transitioning into all things fall! And one of my new recipes I’ve created, is this grain-free pumpkin spice granola. It is made with pantry staples, super easy to prepare, and is grain-free.

Ingredients for granola:

What I love about making this granola is that it can be tailored to what is in my pantry. Therefore, the possibilities are endless and it make for a fun time getting creative with what I have in my pantry. But for this pumpkin spice granola here is what I used:

  1. Almonds
  2. Pecans
  3. Cashews
  4. Toasted coconut
  5. Hemp seeds
  6. Manuka honey or maple syrup
  7. Coconut oil
  8. Vanilla extract
  9. Salt
  10. Pumpkin spice
  11. Cinnamon

Chopping the nuts:

I like to pulse the nuts a few times in my food processor to give the nuts a rough chop. But if you don’t have a food processor try chopping with a sharp knifer or using a high powered blender.

How to prepare the granola:

Once the nuts are chopped, add the rest of the ingredients, and mix. And then add it all to a lined 8×8 baking sheet and press down the granola to create an even layer. Bake 250 F for 40-45 minutes and once done let cool for 15 minutes and stick in the freezer for an hour to harden up.

Creating the granola chunks:

One the granola has been in the freezer for an hour with my hands I break it up into desired chunks. And I like it chunky, so I create some big delicious chunks.

How to store:

I like to store my granola in an airtight container either in the refrigerator or the freezer.
