Pumpkin Spice Granola


  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/2 cup quinoa (uncooked)
  • 1/2 cup flax seed
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground clove
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 egg white


  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees
  2. Mix the oats, nuts, quinoa, and flax seed together in a large bowl
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt your coconut oil
  4. To this, add your maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, clove, vanilla, salt, and brown sugar – stir to combine
  5. Pour the liquid mixture into the oat/nut mixture. Stir together. Add your egg white (as long as the mixture isn’t hot) and stir thoroughly until everything is evenly combined
  6. Spread the mixture out evenly onto a baking sheet and place in the oven for 45 minutes
  7. Every 15 minutes or so, remove the granola from the oven and toss it around with a spatula before spreading it into an even layer again before placing it back in the oven
  8. Once the 45 minutes are up, remove the granola from the oven and let it cool on your counter (or on a cooling rack) – it won’t be crunchy/crispy until it has cooled a bit
  9. Store in an airtight container – it will keep for several months
