Thanksgiving Granola

Everyone loves a good granola, and ESPECIALLY when you are traveling.  I always make sure I have granola with me when I travel, so I don’t get hangry!  When you’re traveling over Thanksgiving, you don’t want to miss out on all those holiday flavors either!  So, I took my original granola recipe and turned it into “Thanksgiving granola.”  What makes it Thanksgiving?  It is your pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and cranberry sauce all mashed up!  This is great for traveling, but it would also be great as a travel “send off” for anyone that will traveling back to their home after spending the holidays with you.  This is also a great idea for a snack that sits around the house when everyone comes over to watch the game on Thanksgiving!  I made a double batch, and if you like granola, you should too!
Thanksgiving Granola
1 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup shredded or flaked coconut, unsweetened
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4-1/2 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 300F.  Cover baking sheet with silpat or parchment paper.  Mix all of the ingredients together and spread on baking sheets.  Bake for 20-25 minutes. Mix the nuts up about halfway through. After removing from the oven, add as many dried cranberries as you like!  Enjoy!
