Perfect Pumpkin Granola Recipe

We tried and tested the Dietitians of Canada’s Perfect Pumpkin Granola Recipe! We paired down the canola oil by half to keep the granola a little bit lighter. This granola is perfect on top of yogurt or you can enjoy it with milk for a delicious, quick, and easy breakfast.


Canola Oil 30 ml
Maple Syrup 68 g
Pumpkin Puree 1/2 Cup (125 ml)
Instant Oats 3 Cups (50 ml)
Coconut 1/2 Cup (125 ml)
Golden Raisin 1/2 Cup (125 ml)
Toasted Pumpkin Seeds 1/4 Cup (60 ml)
Pecan 1/2 Cup (125 ml)
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon 2 ml
Cinnamon Powder 1/2 Teaspoon (2 ml)
Ground Nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon (1 ml)
Ground Cloves 1/4 teaspoon (1 ml)


  1. Preheat oven to 325F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine canola oil, maple syrup and pumpkin puree in a small bowl and stir to combine.
  3. In a separate large bowl and the oats, shredded coconut, raisins, pumpkin seeds, pecans, salt and spices. Stir until well combined.
  4. Pour the pumpkin mixture over the dry ingredients and mix evenly.
  5. Spread the granola mixture evenly on the baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and cool for 15 minutes.
  7. Once cooled, use a spatula to break the granola into pieces.
  8. Store in a container with a tight-fitting lid.
