Like your favorite little cookie, but in granola form! The perfect make-ahead breakfast for the holidays.


  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cups pecan halves
  • 1/3 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, in liquid form
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Gingerbread Spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, chopped pecans, pecan halves, maple syrup, coconut oil, gingerbread spice, and salt. Mix together so the oats are well coated.
  3. Pour out the oat mixture onto a rimmed half sheet pan lined with parchment paper, and spread out evenly.
  4. Bake for 5 minutes, then stir oats and spread out evenly. Bake for 5 more minutes, and stir again. Return to the oven, and bake for about 3 more minutes, or until the edges are just beginning to brown.
  5. Allow the granola to cool completely on the pan, and then break into chunks.
  6. Store in an airtight container.
