This pumpkin spice granola recipe is great for putting atop your yogurt for breakfast or grabbing a handful as a guilt free snack.
What I really love about this recipe is that it is so versatile and you can change up some of the ingredients to change up the flavors.

Test out this recipe using combinations of different nuts and different seeds and see how you like it best. Or try a combination of multiple kinds of nuts and seeds!
I really love having pecans, pepitas, and chia seeds in this mixture. Just make sure that you aren’t deviating too much from the recommended measurements as then the granola won’t stick together very well.

However, feel free to double and even triple this recipe as I certainly know it goes quick in my house (I quadruple it)! This is also a nice, cheap recipe to make on a regular basis as well. If you don’t already, you should always keep some old fashioned oats on hand in your pantry staples for making quick and easy recipes like this one.
Why use egg whites?
Before I really started making granola, I would never use egg white, only things like honey thinking that it would stick together. I could never seem to get those really awesome granola clusters that I love so much!
Then I found this large cluster almond granola recipe one day scrolling through Pinterest that called for egg whites and realized that was my missing link! Egg whites help this pumpkin spice granola recipe to stick together and create those yummy clusters!
So if you are looking for that super crunchy and cluster filled granola, then DO NOT STIR the granola when it is cooking. You have to let it cool down first and then break it apart. Trust me, this makes ALL the difference!
- 2 cups of oats
- 1/2 cup nuts of choice (walnuts, pecans, almonds)
- 1/2 cup seeds of choice (hemp, chia, pumpkin/pepitas, sunflower)
- 2 tsp pumpkin spice
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Sweetener to taste-stevia
- 3 egg whites
- Take the dry ingredients and mix together in a bowl.
- Take the 3 egg whites and beat them until soft peaks form.
- Add the beaten egg whites to the dry mixture and fold together well.
- Evenly spread granola mixture on a cooking sheet.
- Bake at 240F for 60 minutes.
If you want a granola that is seperated more into smaller pieces, stir the mixture every 20 minutes while baking.
If you want a granola that is chunkier, then do not stir while baking. Leave the mixture to cool then break apart into chunks.
