Pumpkin Spice Latte Granola
This pumpkin spice latte granola is the perfect answer to Fall mornings. If you love pumpkin spice lattes, you’ll love this delicious vegan granola!
Here’s what you’ll need to make this pumpkin granola:
- Rolled oats. Look for rolled, old fashioned or large flake oats.
- Almonds. I used chopped almonds but pecans are lovely in this recipe too.
- Pumpkin pie spice. Pumpkin pie spice makes flavouring pumpkin recipes quick and easy but if you can’t find any, you can replace it with 2 tsp cinnamon, 1
- Maple syrup. This granola is sweetened naturally with maple syrup. You can use agave or honey in its place.
- Coffee. Brew some coffee – the stronger the better! Any coffee works but strongly brewed is best. You can use drip, French press, a strong Americano or any other brewing method.
- Pumpkin puree. You’ll need some pure pumpkin puree. I used canned but you can also make your own. If you’re using canned, just make sure it’s pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.
- Coconut oil. Coconut oil helps the granola clump together and get nice and crispy.
- Optional add-ins. I added shredded coconut and chopped dates but technically they’re optional and the recipe will come out just find without out. I like the added flavour and texture. You could also use raisins, chocolate chips (stir in after baking), any nuts or seeds or any other granola add-in you can think of.
