Ingredients

  • 6 c. regular oats
  • 6 oz pepitas
  • 2 containers containers mixed nuts 24 oz each
  • 1 1/2 c. roasted sunflower seeds
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin spice
  • 1 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 c. honey
  • 6 oz dried cranberries

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl mix together oats, pepitas, nuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin spice. Set aside.
  • In a medium size bowl whisk together vegetable oil and honey.
  • Pour honey mixture over oat mixture. Stir to combine. 
  • Spread out on two half sheet pans, I recommend lining this with parchment paper or silpats. 
  • Baked at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, stirring every ten minutes. 
  • Remove from oven, cool completely, break up granola and stir in cranberries.
  • Store in air tight container.

Notes

  • After granola is completely cooled place in an airtight container or resealable bag. It will last for up to a month.
  • Keep your oil and sweetner at a 50/50 ratio for the perfect topping in your granola. We used a honey and oil combination in this recipe.
  • To get a nice clumpy granola press the granola into an even layer before you place it in the oven. Stir it only once during the baking process and press it down after you pull it out of the oven before it cools.
  • It’s tricky to tell when granola is done. Remember your granola won’t be dry right out of the oven. As it cools it will dry, so it’s hard to tell when it’s done. When your granola is lightly toasted and smells like cooked honey it’s ready to take out of the oven.
  • Remember to add any dried fruit after you are done baking. If you add it before baking it will burn.
