Cinnamon Maple Pecan Granola
Fall is definitely my favorite season. I don’t think I would have said that when I was a kid, but as I’ve gotten older I find myself getting most excited about fall. Cooler temps, cozier dishes, comfy cardigans, scarves(!!), warm spices, an overwhelming sense of nostalgia and a feeling of getting back on track.
I love all the seasons and could tell you my favorite thing about each one. In fact, the changing of seasons is one of my favorite things about living in Virginia, but there’s just a special energy that comes with fall for me.
The temps have been cooler this week which has me craving all the fall things (it doesn’t take much), and this cinnamon maple pecan granola is so, so good and it makes the house smell like sweet cinnamon as it bakes. The best. I can’t walk by the jar without grabbing a handful to munch on.
Enjoy! This makes a great gift and dare I say it’s refined sugar-free, vegan and gluten-free? (As long as you use gluten-free oats, of course.) I won't make any health claims, but as far as granolas go this one is a bit more virtuous than others I've seen. But regardless, it is so fragrant and so delicious - there is just something so satisfying and comforting about having a big jar full on my counter.
This homemade granola recipe is perfect for fall. The cinnamon maple pecan combination is so cozy and smells so good!
