Do you love granola? It such a hearty breakfast food. A little goes a long way… which is really nice when you’re feeding multiple little people. I like to keep granola on hand for those mornings we need to rush out the door but still need something to eat.
So far, I haven’t run into a granola that I didn’t like (I know, I know… now that I’ve said that…) but I definitely have my favorites, this being one of them. I love how it combines the flavors of the season with adding pumpkin, cranberries and apples. I love fall! It’s an amazing time of year and I look forward to the in-season produce.

I now this makes a large batch so if it’s just you or maybe one other, you might want to cut the recipe in half.
If you’re not sure where to get some of the items listed, you can find them on Amazon. Here are some links to make it easier: pumpkin puree, craisins, pepitas, sliced almonds, coconut oil, coconut flakes, flax seeds and dried apple, however, I recommend trying to find them locally as Amazon isn’t always the cheapest place to purchase food items.
- 1 cup sliced almonds
- 1 cup pepitas
- 1 cup walnuts, chopped
- 1 cup craisins
- 1 cup raisins
- 1 cup coconut flakes
- 1/2 cup flax seeds
- 6 cups oats
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1 cup dried apple, chopped
- 1/2 tablespoon sea salt
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 cups pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
- Mix all the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and set aside.
- Mix all the wet ingredients together in a small bowl.
- Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix together until well combined.
- Pour the mixture into a 9×13 pan (you’ll probably need a couple since this makes quite a bit). Spread in an even layer and don’t fill up your pans as it will be hard to stir while it’s cooking.
- Bake for approx. 40 minutes (mine took a bit longer), stirring every 10 minutes or so.
- Remove the dish from the oven and let cool for 20-30 minutes.
- This makes approx. 12 cups.
