Making Paleo Pecan Pie Granola

Can you ever have too many granola recipes? I don’t think so! I know I just posted one recently (HERE) that is super tasty, but this one is completely different and delicious in its own way. It’s inspired by my Pecan Pie Muffins that are a huge hit. It took 3 tries to get just right because I wanted it perfect before I shared it and now it is! I shared a batch with my brother and he quickly texted me that it was the absolute best granola of his life! I’m confident you will love it that much, too!

The smell of this granola while it’s baking is seriously incredible! It will fill your house with the scent of cinnamon, sweet maple, and toasted coconut- yum!

This granola is super easy to make! It’s all mixed in a big bowl and you don’t even have to do any chopping if you buy the pecan pieces. It gets stirred half way through to ensure even coating on all the pieces. It’s an easy step that makes a big difference.

Whenever I use molasses in a recipe, I get asked if it can be replaced with maple syrup. Technically yes, that would work, but I don’t suggest that unless you have an allergy or sensitivity. I add the blackstrap molasses for a reason- it tastes much different than maple, but compliments it perfectly. It adds depth of flavor and I really want you to try it with it, even if you think you don’t like molasses. It’s an affordable ingredient and here are some other recipes to use it in: Paleo Gingersnaps, Paleo Graham Crackers, Paleo Pecan Pie Muffins, and Paleo Gingerbread Muffins.

      I Teri. I looked into this and you were already registered in our newsletter. That might be why it was giving you the error message. You should be good. Thanks,

    I really want to try this recipe, but can it be made without the coconut flakes, or does that need to be substituted?

    1. Hi Raven- I’m so sorry it took so long for me to reply! You probably will need to replace them with something since it’s such a main part of the recipe. Finely chopped nut would probably be the best option. I hope that helps and I hope you try it!

    I made this today and I have to say I have burned my mouth trying to eat it HOT. I simply couldn’t wait any longer 🙂 And besides the fabulous taste, you hit the nail on the head about the aroma. If you’re selling your house, you can’t go wrong making this right before you have an Open House. Buyers will be salivating!

    1. Haha- I like that idea, Vickie! That’s a great selling tactic 🙂 Thank you for trying my recipe and for the nice feedback. I hope your mouth is recovered now 😉

  5. Can you give nutritional facts? Carbs?

    1. Hi Judy- I don’t provide nutritional facts for my recipes, but you can use a site like My Fitness Pal to help you figure that all out. Hope you try it!

    Hi!
    What is the best way to store this? Just an air tight container?
    Thanks so much!! It tastes great!!!

    1. Hi Sarah- yes, stored in an air tight container at room temperature is fine. I usually use a mason jar since I always have those around. I’m so glad you like it!

    My 1st go at granola, I see you don’t use oats? Isn’t this the foundation of all granola?

    1. Hi John- this is a grain-free granola so no oats. I think if you try it you will love it and not miss the oats. Here is a granola with oats if that’s what you’re looking for: https://www.goldenbarrel.com/recipe/homemade-granola-with-butter-flavored-coconut-oil/
