Loaded with walnuts and dried cranberries and cherries and kissed with pumpkin-pie spices and a hint of salt, this Pumpkin Harvest Granola is not only filling and flavorful and delicious, it's gluten-free and vegan, too!
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients: the oats, walnuts, cranberries, cherries, spices, and salt.
Stir together the pumpkin, oils, maple syrup, honey, and vanilla in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then immediately reduce heat to medium-low and, stirring constantly, simmer for two minutes.
Blend the pumpkin sauce with the dry ingredients until they are well-coated. Spread evenly across a baking sheet and bake until crunchy but not burned, about 45 to 60 minutes - stirring every 15 minutes to ensure even cooking.
And you're done! You have a crunchy, flavorful, filling granola to enjoy at breakfast or any other time of day that suits your fancy!
