Pumpkin Spiced Granola

Recipes

By: Candice Kumai

Here’s a DIY take on one of my favorite foods. With the addition of pumpkin and spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger, this spiced granola will become your new pick-me-up in the a.m. Get it gurl.

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients:

2 cups rolled oats, preferably organic

1⁄2 cup slivered almonds

1⁄3 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

1⁄4 cup whole flaxseeds

2 tablespoons shredded coconut

1⁄3 cup pumpkin puree

1⁄4 cup maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg

1⁄4 teaspoon ginger

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 teaspoon sea salt

1⁄3 cup dried cranberries

1⁄3 cup dried cherries (optional)

 

Directions:

1 Preheat the oven to 325F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (optional) and coat it with cooking spray.

2 In a large bowl, mix together the oats, almonds, pepitas, flaxseed, coconut, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, oil, and sea salt until well combined.

3 Spread the oat mixture evenly over the baking sheet. Bake for approximately 15 minutes. Stir the mixture with a spatula. Return it to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp.

4 Once the granola is cool, stir in the cranberries and cherries, if using.

Beautiful, handmade, delicious scones. I was inspired to make more baked goods full of dates, after a trip to Australia + Palm Springs! Did you know dates are packed with fiber, potassium, vitamin B-6 and even magnesium!?
