Homemade Pumpkin Granola

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 6 cups 1x


Lightly spiced and packed with pumpkin flavor, this homemade pumpkin granola is a staple for the autumn season! Whip up a big batch of it to enjoy with yogurt or milk, or enjoy it as a snack by itself.



  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats (187.5 g)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut chips (30 g)
  • 2/3 cup almonds, roughly chopped (75 g)
  • 1/2 cup pecans, roughly chopped (50 g)
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (37.5 g)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt (12 g)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (2 g)
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar (57.5 g)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup (75 g)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil (62.5 g)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (124 g)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a sheet tray with a silicone baking mat, or spray generously with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all the ingredients until well combined. Spread the granola out into an even layer on the prepared sheet tray.
  3. Bake the granola for 15 minutes, then stir the granola gently and return to the oven for 15-20 more minutes.
  4. Remove from the oven and let cool at room temperature. As the granola starts to cool, it will dry out a bit more and crisp up nicely.
  5. Stored in an airtight container, this granola will usually last about two weeks.


  • If you want, you can substitute the almonds and pecans out for other types of nuts—I think walnuts would be delicious in this recipe!
