Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats use gluten free oats for GF
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup pecans roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp ground clove
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 tbsp real maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp honey or maple syrup if vegan
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325F/160F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, shredded coconut, pecan, and spices. In another medium bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and honey, if using. Add to dry ingredients and mix until well combined.

  3. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a baking mat and spread oat mixture in a single layer. The thinner the layer, the better. If you don't have two baking sheets, do two batches. Don't overcrowd the sheet.
  4. Bake for about 30 minutes or until granola is golden and no longer wet (it might be a little more or less depending on your oven). Halfway through baking, take granola out of the oven and stir it (this will allow for even baking and your granola will be crunchy on all sides). 

  5. When granola is ready, turn the oven off and keep the granola inside for about 5 minutes. This will make it even crispier! Remove from the oven and stir in dried cranberries. Cool completely and store in mason jars!
