It’s autumn and Halloween is just around the corner, which means one thing to me: loads of pumpkin recipes! First up is this Pumpkin Pie Granola, which is packed with seasonal spices like cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg, combined with toasted oats, crunchy nuts and sweet maple syrup.
I’ve been making my own granola since I was a teenager navigating my way around all my intolerances, and if you follow me on Instagram @brechernutrition, you’ll have seen that I’ve started selling my own granola, with my Peanut Butter Granola and Chocolate Chip Quinoa Granola as my bestsellers! So with Halloween upon us, it was only natural that I created this special edition Pumpkin Pie Granola.
This recipe is really straightforward and the best part is that you can customise it to suit your preferences as well as the ingredients you have at home, playing around with different nuts and seeds.

Pumpkin Pie Granola Recipe (Vegan, Gluten-Free)
- 1.5 cups rolled oats
- 2/3 cup raw pecans
- 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds
- 1.5 tbsp coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or a pinch of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg)
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- 3 tbsp maple syrup (can replace with honey)
- 3 tbsp pumpkin puree
- 2 drops vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- Preheat the oven to 170 C and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Add the oats, pecans and pumpkin seeds to a large bowl.
- Whisk all remaining ingredients together (except cranberries) in a separate bowl – pumpkin, olive oil, maple syrup, salt, cinnamon, spices, vanilla.
- Pour wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until fully combined.
- Spread the mixture evenly onto the lined tray and use the back of a wooden spoon to press down tightly. Bake for 25 minutes, removing from the oven 5 minutes before finished to scatter over cranberries.
- Allow cool completely, then store in an airtight container up to 2 weeks (if it lasts that long!)
