Perfect Maple Pumpkin Granola

This healthy maple pumpkin granola recipe is easy to make, vegan, gluten-free, and most importantly, totally irresistible. It will be your go-to fall snack!

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt or 1/2 teaspoon table salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Combine coconut oil and maple syrup in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30-60 seconds, then add pumpkin puree and stir to combine.
  • Add oats, coconut, pecans, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie spice, and salt to the bowl. Stir well to mix everything evenly.
  • Spread mixture in an even layer on the baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for at least 15 minutes. (Granola will be soft when first removed from the oven, then get crunchy as it cools.)
  • Use your hands or a spatula to break cooled granola into pieces of your desired size. Store at room temperature for 1-2 weeks.

Notes

  • This recipe requires a higher temperature and longer cooking time than our favorite base granola recipe because of the addition of pumpkin, which has a lot of moisture.
  • If the stored granola begins to get less crunchy, crack open the container a little bit. It will still keep fine that way for several days.
  • Nutritional information is an estimate per serving, with an approximate serving size of 1/3 cup of this granola.
