Pumpkin Granola - Paleo

Submitted by: SUEHESS72


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    ◦1/2 cup sliced almonds
    ◦1/2 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
    ◦1/2 cup pecans, chopped
    ◦8-10 dried dates, pits removed, then chopped
    ◦1/2 cup pumpkin puree
    ◦1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
    ◦1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
    ◦1/3 cup maple syrup
    ◦1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    ◦2 tablespoons cinnamon
    ◦1 tablespoon nutmeg
    ◦1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
    ◦1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
    ◦pinch of salt

Directions

1.Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2.In a large mixing bowl, add your pumpkin puree, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and all spices. Mix well.
3.Then add your nuts, seeds, and dates and mix well with your wet ingredients.
4.Place parchment paper on a large baking sheet and pour your granola mixture on top. Use a spoon to spread out the mixture evenly so everything will cook at the same time.
5.Place in oven and cook for 30-40 minutes, moving the granola around half way through to be sure it doesnít burn.
6.LET COOL. Letting the granola cool will help it harden up, and thatís what you want from granola. Duh.
7.Eat all by itself or top it off with coconut milk, almond milk, or even dairy milk (if you do that).
8.Enjoy the paleo life. Itís beautiful.

  • This is great to have this around. I eat it with a little coconut milk. Delish! But I do have to reinforce the recipe "rule" to let it cool off completely before trying to stash it. No one likes soggy granola, cavemen or grain eaters. :) - 12/7/13
