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:
- Toasted coconut
- Hemp seeds
- Manuka honey or maple syrup
- Coconut oil
- Vanilla extract
- Pumpkin spice
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.
