This crumble topping (aka granola) makes enough for more than a dozen servings of overnight oats. Make it once and keep it in a mason jar to sprinkle on your breakfast for up to two weeks.


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped
  • ¼ cup flax seed
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp. sweetener (maple, agave, or coconut syrup)
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 300F degrees. Add the rolled oats, pecans, flax seed, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  2. Pour in the vanilla extract, sweetener, and coconut oil. Use a rubber spatula to mix and coat all of the dry ingredients. Adjust spices or sweetener to taste.
  3. Spread the crumble topping in an even layer on a baking sheet and pop it in the oven. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, until golden brown. Set aside to cool.
  4. Once the crumble topping has cooled, transfer it to a mason jar or another airtight container and store at room temperature.
