The Ultimate Pumpkin Spice Granola


There are plenty of pumpkin spice recipes out there, but none as good as the ultimate pumpkin spice granola. The perfect breakfast recipe for your yogurt, smoothie or simply on its own. Good luck not eating this by the handful!

Obviously fall = pumpkin season but I always have to chuckle to myself when stores put out their big displays of their pumpkin purees. Can’t fool me! I know you stock your shelves with it year round (thankfully!). I’m a full blown pumpkin lover and don’t save pumpkin flavored recipes *just* for the fall.

I’ve been making my own granola for as long as I can remember and if you think you aren’t a granola person… have you tried homemade?! I completely understand if you think store-bought granola is bland (it is) but homemade granola is on another level.

Pumpkin Spice Granola Ingredients

  • Rolled oats
  • Pecans
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Cashews
  • Pumpkin spice
  • Sea salt
  • Vanilla extract
  • Pumpkin puree – you can make your own or buy from the store! Just make sure you grab pureed pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.
  • Coconut oil
  • Maple syrup
  • Egg white – this is optional but I love adding egg white to create granola clusters. If you want smaller crumbles of granola or want to keep this recipe vegan, omit the egg white!

DIY Pumpkin Spice

Of course, pumpkin spice mixtures are at almost every grocery store but if you want to check your pantry first, you can whip up your own spice mixture at home! Here’s my foolproof recipe:

  • 3 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves

This will make more than enough for this recipe so store any leftovers in an airtight container and use in another delicious pumpkin recipe. 

There are plenty of pumpkin spice recipes out there, but none as good as the ultimate pumpkin spice granola. The perfect breakfast recipe for your yogurt, smoothie or simply on its own. Good luck not eating this by the handful!

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Granola

STEP 1: Mix the oats, pecans, pumpkin seeds, cashews, pumpkin spice and sea salt together in a large bowl. 

STEP 2: Add the vanilla extract, pumpkin puree, coconut oil and maple syrup to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.

STEP 3: Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper and mix in the egg white if using. Bake at 350ºF for 15 minutes.

STEP 4: Remove from the oven and flip the granola as best as you can. Bake for another 15 minutes.

STEP 5: Remove from the oven and let cool for at least 20 minutes before enjoying or storing. 

How to Store Homemade Granola

Let the granola cool slightly before placing in an airtight container. The granola should last up to two weeks on the countertop… but I bet you’ll devour it before then!
