Full of flavor and perfect for snacking, this crunchy pumpkin granola is naturally sweetened and made with only a handful of ingredients! It’s oil-free, refined sugar-free and easy to make.
Prep: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
Dry ingredients: In a medium mixing bowl, combine the oats, pecans, pepitas and spices.
Wet ingredients: In a measuring cup or small bowl, mix together the pumpkin puree and maple syrup.
Mix wet & dry: Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients, mix well to combine.
Layer: Spread the granola on rimmed baking sheet in a single layer.
Bake: Place in the oven at bake for 40 – 50 minutes, stirring half way through. Let cool, granola will harden as it cools.

Serves 9, about 1/2 cup per serving.

RECOMMENDED EQUIPMENT: I love my Silpat or these parchment liners for lining this rimmed baking sheet.
