I love granola.

No, I really LOVE granola.

The mash up of earthy oats, nuts that toast to the golden brown, coconut shreds with browned crispy edges, sweet maple syrup is pretty much perfection.  

Then add a healthy sprinkle of apple pie spice and crunchy apple chips and you get a granola that tastes like the topping of a big bubbling pan of apple crisp. Oh glorious granola!


  • quick cooking oats
  • sliced almonds
  • sweetened coconut
  • coconut oil
  • maple syrup
  • apple pie spice
  • salt
  • apple chips

Step by step

  1. Stir together dry ingredients.
  2. Coat with coconut oil and maple syrup.
  3. Add the spice.
  4. Bake 12 minutes.
  5. Allow to cool then stir in apple chips.

Easy enough, right??

Granola is one of those recipes that is fabulously forgiving. Don’t have maple syrup? Honey will work. Use whatever nuts you have in your pantry. Add flax seeds. Leave out the coconut.

Pumpkin pie spice, apple pie spice, a blend of gingerbread spices or just classic cinnamon … spice it up in whatever way you would like.

Tips for best results

The key is to stir it as it bakes and watch it at the end to ensure it doesn’t toast too far and get slightly burnt.

Serving suggestions

It is delicious with milk for breakfast, over ice cream, stirred into yogurt, used to garnish a store bought cheesecake or just as a snack!
