Description

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.


Ingredients

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

Instructions

  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 a few months. 


Notes

  • 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!
