This Easy Pumpkin Granola recipe is made with healthy gluten-free oats, almonds, pumpkin puree, pumpkin spice, and chocolate chips! Vegan.
It's that time again, friends. The day when bloggers across the internet celebrate all things pumpkin!
Thanks to Sara of Cake Over Steak, this year's Virtual Pumpkin Party is back in full force with both savory and sweet pumpkin recipes.
I'm never quite ready for what seems like pumpkin bonanza as soon as autumn hits, but the Virtual Pumpkin Party puts me in the mood every year.
Some of my favorite recipes on the blog have come out of this day of celebrated squash, like my easy pumpkin bread and my chocolate chip pumpkin blondies. And this year, I present this seriously easy pumpkin granola.
And when I say easy, I mean a one-bowl granola recipe that bakes up perfectly in one large baking pan.
And the ingredients? Wholesome gluten-free oats, raw almonds, and pumpkin puree, sweetened with maple syrup and coconut sugar, then warmed with pumpkin spice.
Plus chocolate chips, for good measure. While the chocolate chips are totally optional, they do make it especially good when using this as a snacking granola.
To check out all the delicious pumpkin recipes today, you can find them all over at the Virtual Pumpkin Party page. Happy Pumpkin Partying!

This is a great snack! And super easy.

You can't go wrong with a pumpkin granola like this. Thanks so much for joining in! xoxo
I cannot wait to make this! I try to make a batch of granola each week…we don't just eat it for breakfast…we all end up snacking on it throughout the day. This sounds amazing. I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate!
