Hi friends! Today I am sharing with you my maple and pecan granola. This recipe is super simple and quick to make -> basically the ideal recipe for meal prep Sundays!
If you read my previous blog post, you may know that I am trying to stay away from refined sugar this month and it is not easy to find great snacks or quick breakfasts that don’t contain refined sugar. This led me to make my own granola. Plus, I just started a new job and having granola ready in the morning for a quick breakfast or in the afternoon for a snack has been a life saviour. I literally have made 3 batches of this maple and pecan granola in the last two weeks!
This granola is made with oats, pecans, chia seeds, peanut butter, coconut oil and is naturally sweetened by maple syrup. The chia seeds/water mixture and the peanut butter both help create big clusters. I’ve been loving eating this granola with milk or with homemade yogurt! I got an Instant Pot for Christmas and had to try making yogurt in it. It turned out pretty good! I just need to experiment a little more before I can share the recipe on here 😊
I hope you will try to make this maple and pecan granola! And if you do, don’t forget to leave a comment below or share a picture on instagram with the tag @mapleetchocolat and/or use #mapleetchocolat 🙂
Have a good week!
