Simple Overnight Pumpkin Pie Spice Granola with Maple Syrup and Coconut Oil

Simple Overnight Pumpkin Pie Spice Granola with Maple Syrup and Coconut OilDo you see that delicious bowl full of granola up there? Well it’s almost gone! I’ve been snacking on it ever since I took it out of the oven. It’s so easy to make and the trick is to leave it overnight so you can have a delicious breakfast waiting for you when you get up. This healthy granola will make you feel like you’ve been baking pies all day from the warm lingering smell from the kitchen. The aromatic pumpkin pie spice will keep your family coming back for more!

What I love about this recipe is the simplicity of it. It’s nut-free granola but feel free to add some to the mix. If you can’t find pumpkin pie spice, just combine a mixture of ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and cloves. This recipe is adapted from the Sweet Peas & Pumpkins blog.

    I don’t see myself using coconut oil very often – could I substitute vegetable/canola/light olive oil in this recipe?

      Hi Sarah – Yes definitely, use whatever oil you have on hand. A light-tasting oil like vegetable or canola should work just fine.

    This was amazing! By far my favorite granola! I’m making a batch again tonight and adding some pecans a friend gave me.
