Pumpkin granola makes the perfect autumn/winter breakfast and it can also make the perfect ‘artisan’ Christmas present. It does however taste totally delicious all year round and thanks to Waitrose and Amazon you can buy canned pumpkin any time you like.
If you liked my original healthy granola recipe then you will love this one! Rich in soluble fibre, antioxidants and low in sugar (much lower than shop-bought granola) this recipe is a big hit with me!
- 130g (~2 cups) oats*
- 55g (~1/4 cup) pumpkin puree
- 60g (~1/2 cup) mixed nuts & seeds
- 2 tbsp agave nectar or honey**
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tsp pumpkin spice or cinnamon***
- 100g (1 cup) dried fruit e.g. raisins
**To make this recipe vegan use agave nectar instead not honey
**You can make your own pumpkin spice using my recipe!
Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees C / 350 degrees F
Mix the pumpkin, honey and oil in a bowl
Add the oats and mix well, then add the nuts/seeds and spice
Spread the oat mix on a baking tray and bake for 10-15 minutes
Stir and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until golden (*to make extra crunchy pieces squash together clumps of the oats together)
Once cool, mix your oats and dried fruit together and store in an air-tight container
