Granola is a wonderfully versatile little snack. You can make almost any variation and any flavor you want! I saw this pumpkin and chocolatey version on Alyssa and Carla, and decided to give granola-making a try!
I love granola in my yogurt for breakfast, or on its own as an energy-boosting snack (it’s especially good on a hike!). Plus, it’s much healthier when made at home. This version had just a handful of healthy, natural ingredients. You can adjust each ingredient to suit your taste and it takes just minutes to throw together and bake.
Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe:
1/3 c. pumpkin puree
3 tbsp. coconut oil
2 tsp. honey
3 tbsp. sugar
1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. cocoa
2 c. oats
1/3-1/2 c. chopped nuts, I used hazelnuts because I had them on hand
1/3 c. mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Combine pumpkin, softened coconut oil, honey, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and cocoa in large bowl.
Once combined, stir in oats and nuts.
Spread onto baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
Once you remove the granola from the oven, let it completely cool. Then add chocolate chips.
