Pumkin pie GRANOLA INGREDIENTS
- Rolled oats. Use whole oats. If you are on a gluten-free diet, check the labels, and make sure the brand you are buying is certified for this. If you want it to be even more nutritious, look for sprouted oats. I really like the OneDegree brand, but either works well.
- Pumpkin puree. I use canned puree but you can use homemade pumpkin puree without a problem.
- Pumpkin pie spice mix. In the recipe card you will find the spices that are needed, if you have a purchased mix at home, use it.
- Coconut oil. It can be substituted for avocado oil.
- Maple syrup. You can use another type of sweeteners such as agave or date syrup.
- Nuts and seeds. In this recipe, I use pumpkin seeds (pepitas) and walnuts but really, whatever you put in it, it will taste delicious.
The ingredients that I used to make this pumpkin pie granola are close to those you would use to make a pumpkin pie. So the magic of vegan, homemade granola is that you can have all those delicious flavors FOR BREAKFAST. Yes, you will feel you have pumpkin pie for breakfast. It is a great way to start the day!
That’s why this pumpkin pie flavored granola is perfect because it has all the flavors of fall: the spices, textures, and ingredients typical of this time of year.
tips, tricks & other recipes
- At its best. This granola is best when freshly made. But if you want to store it, it keeps well in a tightly closed jar in the pantry. But please wait until it is completely cooled down before putting it into the jar.
- Always fresh ingredients. Use fresh spices to make this granola; the newer the spices, the more potent their flavor and smell will be. So, your granola will be extra delicious.
- Make it your own. Use this recipe as a guide, if you want to change the spices or adapt it, feel free to do it. It will still be very good.
