If there is one thing I love almost as much as peanut butter it is granola. I could eat granola all day every day. With milk or without milk. With a spoon or by the handful. It is ridiculous how much I love granola.
Here is a delicious recipe I came up with and it is SO good I want to shout it from the rooftops!
3 c. old fashioned oats
1 1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/3 c. roasted pepitas
1/3 c. roasted sunflower seeds
2/3 c. chopped almonds
1 tbsp. stevia
1 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 c. melted coconut oil
1/3 c. pure maple syrup
1/2 c. pure pumpkin
Mix together oats, nuts, seeds, stevia, salt and spices together. Then set aside.
Heat coconut oil, maple syrup and pure pumpkin in a pan over medium heat until warm.
Pour the liquid over dry ingredients and mix well (do it quickly before the liquid cools).
Spread granola over a non stick pan or lay pan with parchment paper and layer it with delicious granola.
Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes then stir granola gently to keep clusters together.
Place back into oven for 10 more minutes or until lightly browned and your kitchen smells like heaven.
Eat with milk, on top of ice cream (my favorite is arctic zero) or by the handful :)
