Delicious, lightly spiced homemade gluten-free granola loaded with nuts, coconut, and dried fruit.
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup maple syrup, brown rice syrup, or honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • ¼ to ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut shreds
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1½ cups chopped dried fruit
  • ¼ cup chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1 cup raw or toasted pumpkin seeds (I used candied ones from Trader Joe's)
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Stir together coconut oil, syrup, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and sea salt in a small bowl.
  3. In a large bowl combine oats, coconut, and almonds. Pour the oil and syrup mixture over the top and stir until everything is well-coated. Spread over the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through so it toasts evenly. Let cool completely. Transfer to a big resealable container or plastic bag. Add the dried fruit, ginger, and pumpkin seeds. Makes about 7 cups.
