Pumpkin Spice Granola


  • 1 1/3 cups mixed raw nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts)
  • 2/3 cup mixed raw seeds (sunflower seeds and shelled pumpkin seeds)
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • Sweetener equivalent to 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 300F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a food processor, combine the nuts, seeds, and flaked coconut. Pulse until the mixture is coarsely ground with some bigger pieces still remaining.
  3. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the almond flour, sweetener, pumpkin pie spices and salt. Add the pumpkin puree and melted butter and mix until well combined.
  4. Spread mixture evenly onto the prepared baking sheet and bake 30 to 40 minutes, stirring frequently, until golden. Turn of the oven and let the granola sit inside for another 10 to 20 minutes, watching carefully so it doesn’t burn.
  5. Remove and let cool.

I love this recipe. I made sure to check on the granola every 10 minutes and had no burning issues.

Made this granola after successfully making several other low carb versions that were all delicious but this was an abject failure. Being an avid cook, I was wary of how pumpkin purée would work in a granola recipe and lo and behold it burned long before it resembled crunchy granola. This recipe is a huge waste of time and money
