Maple Pumpkin Granola

Makes about 3-4 cups

Ingredients

3 Cups rolled oats

1/2 cup pumpkin puree

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup apple sauce

1/4 cup pepitas

1/4 cup raisins

1 tbsp molasses

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

  2. In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients together and set aside.

  3. In a small saucepan, heat the apple sauce, maple syrup, molasses and pumpkin on low heat. Continuously stir until everything is melted together, about 3 minutes.

  4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry and stir to coat everything.

  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the granola on top. Flatten with a spatula and bake for 25-30 minutes. Check every 10-15 minutes to mix around and prevent burning. Bake longer for crispier clumps.

  6. Store in an airtight jar.
