Add the wet ingredients

Melt the coconut oil and add to the bowl of dry ingredients. Add the syrup and stir together so everything is evenly coated. 

Bake

Spread the granola onto a parchment lined baking sheet so that there are no large clumps, leaving a lot of spaces between the granola. This will help it dry out while baking. Bake for 15 minutes, remove and mix up the granola. Place back in the oven for 2-6 minutes, checking every couple minutes to ensure you do not burn the granola and remove once it is dry and crumbly. 

Enjoy!

Break into chunks and enjoy your pumpkin spice granola!

    WOW! Just WOW! This recipe is so good. I look forward to my yogurt snack all day now because of this granola recipe. Literally, I could eat it like a snack just on its own, like popcorn. I may eat the whole tray if left unsupervised.
