Recipe Type: Breakfast
Yield: Makes 5 cups
  • 1½ cups old-fashioned oats
  • ½ cup slivered almonds
  • ⅓ cup pepitas [pumpkin seeds]
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon cloves
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin puree
  • ⅓ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup chopped apricots
  1. Preheat oven to 300F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together oats, almonds, pepitas, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
  3. In a smaller bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, maple syrup, vanilla, and apricots.
  4. Fold the pumpkin mix into the dry ingredients.
  5. Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring every ten minutes, until granola is golden brown and crisp. Granola will continue to harden as it cools, so don't over-bake.
  7. Store in an air-tight container.
