This pumpkin spice granola brittle is crispy, crunchy, and has a delicious contrast between the nut-based granola and sweet, but not too sweet, chocolate. It also makes a perfect, and uncommon, homemade holiday food gift!
Ingredients
  • 2 cups mixed nut mix with pumpkin seeds. Roasted and salted is fine, but there shouldn’t be any other extras
  • 1 cup uncooked gluten-free oats
  • 2 tsp. pumpkin spice
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ to a pound of high-quality semi-sweet chocolate
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  2. In a bowl, combine the trail mix, oats, pumpkin spice, egg white, melted coconut oil, honey, maple syrup, and vanilla until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Line a small sheet pan with foil, baking paper, or Silpat and spill the trail mix mixture out. Shape it into a tightly-fitting rectangle shape (it doesn’t have to be perfect).
  4. Place in the oven for fifteen to twenty minutes, or until the granola is hard and baked together. Check the granola often because it can burn quickly.
  5. Take the granola out of the oven and let cool for fifteen minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a double boiler.
  7. Gently turn the brick of granola over, then pour the chocolate over the entire thing.
  8. Place in the fridge to allow the chocolate to fully harden, then break into pieces!
