Pecan Pie Granola

Here's the Dish

This pecan pie granola is SO good, it almost tastes like dessert! I like this granola for a few reasons…First, it has a great amount of healthy fat, very little carbohydrates and sugar, and a good amount of protein, which means it keeps you satisfied! Second, it tastes good for breakfast or as a snack on pumpkin pie granola, on top of yogurt or in some milk…or it can be used as a topping on a sweet potato, or on dessert such as pumpkin pie! Enjoy this versatile granola that is packed with delicious fall flavors and complete balanced nutrition! 


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 30-35 minutes.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet pan with foil or parchment paper (for easy clean up). Spray with cooking spray. 


In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients and stir to combine. Add the syrup/honey, extract, and egg white. Stir until the dry ingredients are combined with the wet. Spread evenly over the baking sheet (mixture should be crumbly). 


Bake 25-30 min, crumbling and breaking apart the granola with fingers slightly once cooled. Once granola is completely cooled, stir in butterscotch chips if desired.  Store in a sealed container. 


1/2 cup (2 oz)Pecans, chopped
1/2 cup (2 oz)Almonds, chopped (I prefer roasted)
1 1/2 cupOld fashioned oats
1/4 cupBaking stevia (or 1/2 cup sweetener that measures like sugar)
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tspPumpkin pie spice
2 tbsLow sugar maple syrup or honey
1/2 tspMaple extract or vanilla extract
1Egg white, lightly beaten
Optional: 2-3 tbs butterscotch chips

If I don’t like pecans or almonds LOL, could I swap out with peanuts? Or would that up the calories?

I jumped up and down when I saw this recipe. I love, love, love pecans, and pecan pie is one of my favorites, but I’m trying not to eat much sugar! Can’t wait to give it a try soon. Thank you, Katie!

I made this recipe over the weekend and it was absolutely delicious. I love topping greek yogurt with granola and fresh berries and it’s so incredibly difficult finding a brand in store that has low sugar content so this was a real treat. I’ll definitely be making this over and over again!

I saw where you could use butterscotch chips as an option. Could you use chocolate chips instead because I make chocolate pecan pie for holidays so would that work?
