Description

This granola recipe is perfect for fall and packed full of pumpkin flavor!

Ingredients

  • 4-½ cups Rolled Oats
  • ¼ cups Ground Flaxseed Meal
  • ½ cups Chopped Cashews
  • ½ cups Pepitas
  • ¾ cups Dried Cranberries
  • 1-½ teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoons Allspice
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • ¾ teaspoons Fine Sea Salt
  • ¾ cups Dark Brown Sugar
  • ½ cups Pumpkin Puree
  • ⅓ cups Applesauce
  • ⅓ cups Maple Syrup
  • 1-½ teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325ºF and line a large lipped baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats, flaxseed meal, cashews, pepitas, dried cranberries, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger and sea salt. Toss to combine and set aside.

In another medium-sized bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, pumpkin puree, applesauce, maple syrup and vanilla extract until smooth. Pour the wet mixture over top of the dry oat mixture. Stir to fully coat.

Pour the now moistened oats onto the prepared baking sheet and spread evenly. Bake at 325ºF for 45-50 minutes, making sure to give the ingredients a stir every 10-15 minutes while baking. When the granola is brown and crispy on top, remove from oven and set aside to cool completely.

Store the granola in an airtight container. It will keep for about 2 weeks. Serve with milk, yogurt or vanilla ice cream!

We’re having a family reunion brunch this weekend, and I thought that this granola paired with Greek yogurt would add some variety (I’m also making sourdough pancakes, roasted pumpkin pear soup, fruit salad, and bacon & sausage). Anyway, I made the granola last night using freshly roasted/pureed pumpkin and homemade applesauce. I had some this morning with Greek yogurt and a dash of honey and it was delicious! Thanks for sharing.
