Pumpkin Granola (Whole30 Friendly)

20120913-220331.jpg

The moment I saw “GRANOLA” on @paleomg’s blog, my eyes opened with excitement.
Not only does this TASTE amazing, it’s SO easy to make. I might try to have it as cereal, hopefully. Wish me luck.

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
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
pinch of salt
*original recipe called for 1/2 cup of maple syrup, which isn’t Whole30 friendly. Feel free to add it if you’re not doing the program!

Method
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, add your pumpkin puree, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and all spices. Mix well.
Then add your nuts, seeds, and dates and mix well with your wet ingredients.
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.
Place in oven and cook for 30-40 minutes, moving the granola around half way through to be sure it doesn’t burn.

Let the granola cool, and ENJOY.
This is a great snack for company as well. Not only does it taste amazing, it fills the house with a sweet + spicy pumpkin scent. 🙂
