Cooking Time1 hr

Ingredients

  • 8 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (pecans/walnuts)
  • 1 cup (about 1/2 can) pumpkin puree
  • 5 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons orange juice
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F. Divide the oats and chopped nuts between two rimmed cookie sheet pans or jelly roll pans.
     
  2. In a small sauce pan, melt the butter, orange juice, honey, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and pumpkin puree together.
     
  3. Pour this mixture between the two pans of oats and stir until the oats are evenly covered in the pumpkin mixture.
     
  4. Bake the oats for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow the oats to cool on the pans. The granola will continue to firm up as it cools.
     
  5. Store in an airtight container.

I love granola! I have had pumpkin granola before but have never seen a recipe for it. It is a healthy snack and the store version usually is full of not so healthy things. I know granola is supposed to be a breakfast cereal, but I love just snacking on it.

There is no comparison between the boxed stuff you buy at the grocery store and granola you can make at home. When you make it yourself it tastes so much fresher. This one looks really tasty and good for you too. I think it might be fun to get some cute bags from a craft store and give your holiday guests some of this to take home with them as kind of a party favor. A great natural snack for the kids as well.

I love homemade granola and have made lots of different kinds, but this is the most unique recipe I've ever seen and it sounds absolutely delicious! The combination of nuts, oats and pumpkin spices sounds out of this world, and the pumpkin puree makes this an extra healthy treat! This would be delicious sprinkled on top of yogurt, layered in a yogurt parfait, even with fruit or on top of pancakes. This is a great breakfast or snack for fall or anytime of year!
