Ingredients

  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup quinoa (uncooked)
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup pumpkin seed
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350º F. Line a baking sheet parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl combine rolled oats, quinoa, almonds, pumpkin seeds, and salt. Mix well.
  • Whisk pumpkin puree, olive oil, maple syrup, brown sugar, and pumpkin pie spice together in a small bowl.
  • Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking sheet and spread out to form a uniform single layer.
  • Bake for 30 – 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes until evenly browned.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. It will crisp up as it cools.
  • Store in an airtight container up to 2 weeks.

Notes

If you prefer chunkier granola, don’t stir as it breaks up the clusters. Instead, just rotate the baking sheet to ensure even cooking.
