Carrot Cake Granola

Do you like carrot cake? Well, I love it. Here’s a take on two of my favorite things: Granola and carrot cake.

Can you see the little shreds of carrot? :)

Carrot Cake Granola


-1 1/2 cup oats

-1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut or like 1/2 C sweetened

-1/4 cup pecan pieces (or however much you want)

-2 tbsp grounded flax seed

-2 tbsp wheat germ

-1/4 cup applesauce

-1/3 cup agave or honey

-1/2 cup shredded carrots (maybe more)

-1 tsp pumpkin pie spice

-Sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, just for good measure


1. Mix together oats, coconut, pecans, flax seed, and wheat germ.

2. Whisk applesauce, honey/agave, carrots, and spices in a separate bowl with a fork.

3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and mix until completely combined.

4. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 325 fir 25 minutes, or until granola looks toasted and dried out enough.

5. Move the granola around a couple times, keeping some clusters together.

6. Store cooled granola in airtight container or keep in the freezer.
