Pumpkin Pie Granola

The BEST Pumpkin Granola

Confession… I am a granola addict. It is one of my ALL TIME favorite treats to make and munch on. For years I stuck to a basic vanilla version. I never saw a need to adjust it because the flavor was A-MAZ-ING.

It was one of those baked treats that would engulf my entire house in the most divine aroma and have both my husband and seven year old perched on our bar stools waiting for me to pull it out of the oven. Oh, and did I mention you could basically serve it on/in anything?!

It wasn’t until recently that I started to crave a banana version and switched things up. It really was kind of a hit or miss recipe attempt that turned out incredible. It quickly became a recipe I would make over and over and would watch it quickly disappear. NOW, since it is fall, I decided to create a pumpkin version!

This recipe does call for sugar, which means it leans more into the treat/dessert category. However, the amount is minimal which means I do not feel too guilty sharing with my child. Here are a few other items we like to stir in:

What to add to granola:

  • Dried fruit
  • Nuts
  • Seeds (pumpkin work well!)

I knew immediately that we were going to love this. Stirring together the ingredients had my kitchen smelling like fall and me wishing I was sipping on a pumpkin spice latte (sidebar… I’m actually not really that into PSL’s. Shhhh… Don’t tell).

Can you imagine how much better it got as it slowly baked to golden perfection?? SO basically you need to make this. Now. Eat all of it on your own, package it up for gifts, or stash some in the freezer for those emergency cravings or quick grab-and-go breakfast. No need to thank me.

PS- Did you know you can add pumpkin to your furry friends treats? Check out the recipe here.

This granola looks delicious? I was wondering if there is a substitute for the coconut oil that would work?

Hi Erin, you could substitute the coconut oil for vegetable oil and it should work just as well.
