WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE PUMPKIN MAPLE GRANOLA
You need the following ingredients to make this granola (the exact measurements are in the recipe card below):
- Rolled oats – Also known as old-fashioned oats. For GF granola, use certificate gluten-free rolled oats.
- Pecans – Use whole or chopped pecans. You can use any nuts of your choice, such as cashews, almonds, walnuts, or hazelnuts.
- Pumpkin seeds
- Pumpkin spice – adds warm depth of flavor. Read below how I make my homemade pumpkin spice mix.
- Sea salt – balances the sweetness.
- Pumpkin puree – I recommend using thicker pumpkin puree. If the puree is too watery, it may take longer to bake, or the granola may be less crunchy.
- Maple syrup – helps to stick the granola together.
- Coconut oil – You can use any oil of your choice.

1. Step: Preheat the oven and prepare the baking tray
Preheat the oven to 320°F (160°C) and line the baking tray with parchment paper.
2. Step: Prepare the granola
To a mixing bowl, add rolled oats, pecans, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin spice, and a pinch of salt. Mix to combine. Then add in pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and melted coconut oil. Mix well until oats are completely coated in pumpkin puree and maple syrup.
3. Step: Bake the granola
Spread the mixture evenly onto the baking tray and bake until golden brown (usually about 35 minutes, but all ovens vary). While baking, stir it from time to time to help it brown evenly. Be careful not to burn it.
Once the granola is golden brown, remove it from the oven and let cool completely (it should crisp up).
