Pumpkin Spice Granola-Grain Free, Gluten Free

31 Aug


This recipe is so simple and tasty plus it will make your house smell amazing!

1/2 cup pumpkin puree (100% pumpkin, no sugar added.)
1/3 cup coconut oil, liquefied
1/3 cup 100% pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons cinnamon
1 Tablespoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
8-10 dried dates, pits removed & chopped
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Step 1: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a mixing bowl combine the pumpkin, oil, syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, & ginger. Whisk together until combined fully.

Step 2: Add almonds, pumpkin seeds, pecans, dates, and coconut to the wet mixture and stir until thoroughly combined.

Step 3: On a parchment paper lined baking sheet, spread the granola mixture out in an even layer with a spoon.

Step 4: Bake about 40 to 45 minutes or until the mixture is looking crisp. Make sure to stir at the halfway point so it doesn’t burn! (About 20 minutes in…) Mine took closer to 45 minutes to cook.

Let cool on pan for a few minutes and then put in an airtight container. This recipe is great to eat by itself or with coconut milk poured on top as a cereal. I also threw some on top of my home made coconut ice cream. Yum.
