Kids are back in school and leaves are starting to change which means one thing…we’re headed into the holiday blitz season. That also means we’re headed into oh so many delicious but not so nutritious treats season. Luckily we’re here to help you get through the next few months with recipes that will be heavy on the delicious, but light on the ingredients.
Healthy Pumpkin Pie Spice Granola Ingredients
3 cups oats
3/4 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup flax seeds
1/2 cup sliced almonds (or any nut of your choice)
1/4 cup coconut oil in liquid state
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tbs pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup golden raisins
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl mix together your oats, almonds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds and spices.
In a smaller bowl, combine your maple syrup, coconut oil & pumpkin puree. Whisk together until well combined.
Add your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and stir until your oats mixture is completely coated. Spread out evenly on your baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for about 25-35 minutes until golden brown, tossing occasionally so the granola browns evenly.
Remove from oven, toss in dried fruit and allow to cool completely. If you want to make it a little more of a treat, add 1 cup dark chocolate chips.
Store in an airtight container and enjoy (note that granola wont be crisp until cooled).
