So I am the first to admit that I am not the best homemade granola maker. I have tried a few times and yes they are yummy but for some reason I always like the brands you can get at the store better. They are crunchier and the whole skipping the baking part also isn’t too bad ha! But I am a sucker for my favorite granola recipes here on the blog, especially the chickpea one!

This recipe turned out crunchy and clustery and sweet with no refined sugars! Plus I added a few of my favorite fall spices and nuts and seeds to the granola to make it hearty, satisfying and simple! But it is mind boggling to me the amount of granolas out there LOADED with excess sugar. I am all about a little sweetness, but sometimes the amount added is just silly. You only need a little maple syrup for this recipe!

Making this granola will take you 5 minutes to prep basically and then only 30 minutes to cook! Quick and easy and then you will have a delicious fall-inspired granola to enjoy for days.
