Total Time20 mins
- 6 cups old-fashioned or quick oats
- 1 cup of pumpkin seeds
- 1/2 cup of hemp seeds
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
- 1/2 cup of walnut pieces
- 1 cup of sweetened coconut flakes
- 1 Tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup of coconut oil melted
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 2 cups of dried cranberries optional
Preheat the oven 325 Degrees F. In a large bowl combine oats, nuts and seeds, coconut flakes, cinnamon, salt, maple syrup and coconut oil. Stir and coat fully.
Evenly spread granola on two large rimmed baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, carefully stirring the granola often so it does not burn on the edges. Granola is done when it is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let the granola cool 15 minutes. Add 2 cups of dried fruit if you want. Pour into a large container and press and pack together which will form granola chunks. Let cool completely before sealing closed with the lid.
