Expert Recipe Tips

  • What Sweetener To Use: This pumpkin granola recipe works perfectly with maple syrup, honey, or regular sugar. We have tried this recipe with all of these sweeteners. We love the flavor the maple syrup adds and it helps bind the granola together. Also, it makes it crunchy. Monk fruit will not work in this recipe because it makes the granola chewy rather than crunchy.
  • Use Rolled Oats: Make sure to use rolled oats in this recipe. This granola recipe doesn’t work with quick oats or steel-cut oats. Rolled oats are the perfect size and texture for making homemade granola.
  • Add Pumpkin Seeds: I love the pumpkin seeds in this pumpkin granola recipe. They add delicious flavor, texture, and crunch to the granola.
