Units Scale
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour (or whole wheat)
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice*
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin (not pie filling)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups any combination of pecans, pepitas, walnuts, and/or almonds


  1. Preheat oven. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat (or use some nonstick cooking spray).
  2. Combine dry ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, chia seeds, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. Combine & heat wet ingredients. In a separate microwave-safe bowl, combine the coconut oil, maple syrup, pumpkin, and vanilla extract. Heat in the microwave for one minute, then whisk together to form a smooth batter.
  4. Mix wet & dry ingredients. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring everything together until you've evenly coated the oats and nuts.
  5. Add granola to sheet pan. Spread the granola in an even layer onto the prepared sheet pan. It will be a thick layer, which is what gets us those lovely clusters!
  6. Bake granola. Bake the granola at 300 degrees for 35 minutes.
  7. Cool granola. Remove the granola from the oven and allow it to cool completely. It will crisp up as it cools.


  1. Pumpkin pie spice: If you don't have pumpkin pie spice, you can substitute with 1 tsp cinnamon + 1/2 tsp allspice + 1/4 tsp nutmeg + 1/4 tsp ginger + 1/8 tsp cloves.
  2. Storing & Freezing: Store this granola in an airtight container after it cools completely, then place it in a cool, dry place for up to a few months. You can also freeze granola in an airtight container or bag (leave as little space in the container as possible) for up to three months. Thaw on the countertop, then enjoy!
