When the leaves start to turn red, orange or yellow, I’m always super excited for autumn. It’s my favourite season and I tend to bake more with speculaas spices. This time I made an autumnal granola with walnuts and cranberries. Super yummy to start the day with a healthy breakfast during the grey mornings!

Autumn granola


  • 230g oats
  • 140g walnuts
  • 50g cranberries
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1tbsp speculaas spices
  • 4tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 3tbsp maple syrup


  • Preheat the oven on 150°C.
  • Add the oats, walnuts, cinnamon and speculaas spices to a big bowl and stir everything together.
  • Melt 2tbsp of coconut oil in the microwave for 1 minute. This will result in 4tbsp melted coconut oil. Add it to the mixture and stir again.
  • Add the maple syrup and stir again.
  • Cover a baking tray with parchment paper and pour the mixture onto the baking tray. It’s important that all the seeds are well spread, otherwise they won’t bake evenly. I always use 2 baking trays to make sure the granola can bake well and becomes very crunchy.
  • Put the baking trays in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.
  • Take the granola out of the oven after 25 minutes and let it cool down.
  • Add in the cranberries as a finishing touch. It’s important to add them after the baking process, otherwise they will become very hard.
  • Save in a closed box in a dry place.

Enjoy a very good autumnal morning!
