Ingredients needed to make Cranberry Pecan Granola

The ingredient list is short and sweet to make this cranberry pecan granola. All you need is old fashioned oats, I like to use organic, Pecans, shredded coconut, and a sweetener like maple syrup!

  • Oats- I like to use organic oats. I usually pick up a container each week at my local Trader Joe’s. I use oats to make granola, overnight oats and so many other things!
  • Chopped pecans- You can also use whole pecans and chop them up yourself! That’s what I did for this recipe and it worked great!
  • Sliced coconut- You can also use shredded coconut for this recipe. I like the sliced because you get a nice chunk of the coconut with each bite!
  • Ground flax- ground flax health benefits come from the fact that it’s high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. I love to add it to recipes whenever I can. It doesn’t change the flavor but it adds a ton of benefits!
  • Spices- like cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  • Pecan butter. I used Abby’s Better Pecan butter which has so much flavor and contains super clean ingredients!
  • Maple syrup- I love to use a quality pure maple syrup. Replacing refined sugar with pure, quality maple syrup is likely to yield a net health benefit, but adding it to your diet will just make things worse. Maple syrup is a less bad version of sugar, much like coconut sugar. It cannot objectively be labeled healthy.
  • Dried cranberries
