Description

Both gluten free and vegan, this homemade pumpkin spice granola is delicious on its own, or as a topping for smoothie bowls, chia pudding or with homemade dairy free milk!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice blend*
  • 1 cup pecans or walnuts
  • 1/2 cup pepitas

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 315 F.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together melted coconut oil, pumpkin, maple syrup, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice. Stir in oats until well coated. Add pecans and pepitas and stir.
  3. Spread mixture in an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes, stir slightly to prevent burning, then return to oven for 15 minutes (45 min total bake time) or until granola is golden brown.
  4. Let cool completely before breaking up into clusters. Store in airtight glass container for up to a week and a half.

Notes

*Don't have any pumpkin spice blend on hand? Make it yourself. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tbsp cinnamon, 2 tsp ground ginger, 1-2 tsp ground nutmeg, 1/2-1 tsp ground cloves and optional: 1/2 tsp allspice. Simply make sure everything is well-incorporated before adding to your recipe!
