(Vegan) Maple Pecan Pie Granola

Vegan Maple Pecan Pie Granola

While pumpkin pie may be my absolute favorite fall treat, I also adore pecan pie. so sugary, full of crunchy sweet pecans… and butter. and more sugar. With one of my favorite not-so-healthy treats in mind, I created this delicious and wholesome granola to get my pecan pie fix without all the those extra calories!

What I love most is that the ingredient list is incredibly short (probably things you all have on hand!) and can be stirred together all in one bowl.

Vegan Maple Pecan Pie Granola

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • 2 Tablespoon vegetable oil or melted coconut oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Spray large baking sheet w/ nonstick spray.
  2. Combine all ingredients and stir until all the oats are evenly coated.
  3. Spread onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
  4. Allow to cool completely (air will help it get crunchy) and enjoy!

  1. Would it be okay to use coconut oil? just wondering cause I love it and I have it on hand…:)

  2. Should be renamed Granola Crack! Doubled the recipe and my husband (who does not like “healthy” food) and I ate it all in 3 days. Thank you for the recipe!

    • I love this granola too Julie! I haven’t made it in a few months. Now I must make it again. 🙂 Thanks for reporting back!

  3. It has taken me literally forever and a day to find a granola recipe worth trying, and this is certainly a keeper! I am a big fan of coconut oil so I substituted that for the canola oil and I was not disappointed 🙂

    Thank you so much for this amazing take on pecan pie in granola form!!!

  4. I’ve made this three times in the past week! Love it!

  5. Just made this and it’s amazing!!! Thank you Sally 🙂

  6. Why did mine turn dark?

    I used organic dark brown sugar… Could that be why?

  7. Hi, Sally,

    Would it be possible to make this without the brown sugar (or with a little less)? I love sugar in all forms, but I’m trying to cut back some. Thank you!

    • Hey Emily. Only 4 Tablespoons of sugar isn’t a lot at all for a huge batch of granola. I don’t recommend cutting down because its taste would be sacrificed. Though you could try with 2 Tablespoons instead.

      • That’s what I figured. I don’t *really* want to cut out the brown sugar anyway 🙂 Thanks for the quick reply!

  8. I just stumbled on your blog and this recipe somehow from Pinterest via another blog – and wow am I glad! I just made this and it is amazing! I have to admit usually I am a failure at anything in the kitchen, but I’m really trying to learn and get better at making healthy, vegetarian meals. This one looked easy enough for a quick snack to take to work with me. Perfect! My cook time was much less than an hour, but I live in Germany so I am sure the difference in oven may have had something to do with that. Also I accidentally spilled a little extra brown sugar in there (told you I am a kitchen failure) so it’s sweet – but I like it that way! Honestly I was eating it off the cookie tray as I put it in the oven… so good. Anyway, you have a new fan and I look forward to trying some of your other recipes!

  9. I decided to try this granola recipe today after leaving Whole Foods and realized I could make it myself. It is absolutely delicious and I will never buy granola again. I love nuts, therefore I added walnuts, pecans,almonds, and pumpkin seeds ; it is tasty. Thank you for sharing the recipe.

  10. Sally, this granola is fantastic! My family looooooves homemade granola and this is a new favorite recipe. So simple and so delicious. Thank you!
