Subtly sweet, crunchy, and tastes like Fall. This granola will be your go-to topping for EVERYTHING.
3/4 cup of pumpkin puree
6 pitted dates
2 Tbsp of maple syrup
1/4 cup of smooth almond butter
1 Tbsp of pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp of salt
1 tsp of fall warming spice
3 cups of rolled oats
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Parchment a large sheet pan.
To a food processor, add all the ingredients except the oats and puree until smooth.
In a separate large bowl, add the oats. Pour the pumpkin blend over the oats and toss until evenly coated.
Spread the mixture out onto the sheet pan, creating an even single layer. Place in the oven for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, take the granola out of the oven and give it a good toss to flip and break it up a bit. Place back in the oven for another 20-30 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before transferring to an airtight storage container.
