Ingredients
  • 2 cups certified gluten-free rolled oats
  • ¼ cup uncooked quinoa
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup pepitas
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, quinoa, sunflower seeds, pecans, pepitas, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and salt.
  3. In a separate small bowl, combine pumpkin puree, melted coconut oil, honey, and maple syrup. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients, mixing thoroughly. Spread out granola mixture on the parchment-lined baking sheet evenly.
