Maple Pumpkin Granola Recipe

This is made with pumpkin puree and spices, and might remind you a bit of a pumpkin pie. But don't get all particular about the pumpkin. You can try this healthy granola recipe with other winter squash varieties like acorn or butternut squash, too.

  1. Measure oil into large roasting pan. Turn the pan so the oil coats the bottom to prevent sticking.
  2. Add remaining wet ingredients and spices. Stir until thoroughly combined.
  3. Add oats, coconut, and buckwheat groats stirring until well-coated.
  4. Bake at 350 (F) degrees, stirring every 10-15 minutes for about an hour or until the granola is toasty brown.
  5. Turn off the oven and allow the granola to remain in the oven until it cools. Store in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes

While this recipe calls for avocado oil, you can use your favorite oil or even butter instead. (I like to use local macadamia nut oil)
