Ingredients

  • 3 cups gluten free rolled oats

  • 1 cup raw pecans

  • 1 cup raw almonds

  • 1/3 cup raw pumpkin seeds

  • 3 tbs coconut sugar

  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt

  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or make your own using 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ground ginger, 1/8 tsp. allspice, 1/8 tsp. nutmeg)

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup

  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix the oats, nuts, seeds, spices, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl.
  • In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the coconut oil, maple syrup and pumpkin puree and whisk. Pour over the dry ingredients and quickly mix with a wooden spoon.
  • Spread the mixture evenly onto a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Once the granola is golden brown, remove from oven and let cool completely. It will crisp up as it cools. Add 1 cup of dried cranberries if desired.  
  • Transfer to an airtight container.  
  • Serve over yogurt, berries or oatmeal, with your favorite milk as a cereal or as a snack.
