It's that time of year again... Pumpkin spice everything, which is fine by me! Last week I found myself on a mission for a snack that was healthier than Pumpkin Spice Oreos, so I created this recipe.
If you like the sounds of Pumpkin Spice Latte, check back in about a month for a Pumpkin Spice Latte Soap. In the meantime, give this granola recipe a try.
Pumpkin Spice Latte Granola
3C Quick Oats
1C Sunflower Kernals
1/2C Shredded Coconut
2TSP Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2C Coconut Oil
1/2C Packed Brown Sugar
1/2C Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans
Preheat oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl combine oats, sunflower seeds, shredded coconut and pumpkin pie spice, stir together. Next, in a small saucepan stir together coconut oil, brown sugar and honey. Cook over medium heat until sugar is melted, about 5 minutes (don't stress, the oil and sugar won't mix together). Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Now pour the mixture over the oat mixture in the bowl. Mix until all of the dry ingredients are coated with the oil mixture and then dump out onto baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, stirring every 10-15 minutes. When the granola is a nice golden color, remove from the oven and allowed it to cool completely. Once it has cooled mix in the express beans and M&Ms. Enjoy!
This would be a great snack for a fall themed at home spa day! Lots of fall fragrances are coming to Pure Bliss soon. Wishing you Blissful showers and baths. -Cassie
