Ingredients

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 1 cup raw sliced almonds
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup pure pumpkin puree
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • tsp pumpkin spice
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil or sesame oil (not toasted)
  • ½ tsp coarse salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 300°F. Prepare a large sheet pan with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Mix the oats, pepitas, and almonds in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, vanilla extract, spices, and oil until smooth. Add to the oat mix and stir until coated.
  • Spread the mixture onto the sheet pan in a single layer. Use a second pan or work in batches to avoid crowding the pan. Sprinkle with the salt.
  • Bake in the preheated oven 30-35 minutes, checking and stirring the granola after 20 minutes to make sure it doesn’t burn. When done, the granola will be fragrant with a golden brown, toasted color.
  • Let cool completely on the pan. Store the pumpkin spice granola in a sealed jar for 2-3 weeks in a dark, cool place like the pantry.

Notes

NOTE: For this recipe, I got all of the nuts, seeds, and oats from the bulk bins at my local supermarket. Do this to save money and pick up just the amount you need so no waste.
