Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 300F. Combine the pumpkin, sunflower and chia seeds in a small food processor, and pulse just enough to break down the seeds into chunky texture.
  • Transfer the seeds to a small bowl, and mix in the shredded coconut, coconut oil, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, and salt.
  • Stir until well coated, then transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, or a Silpat. Spread the mixture out evenly using your hands or a fork.
  • Bake at 300F for about 20 minutes, stirring half-way through to avoid burning. You want this mixture nice and golden, not burnt! Alternatively, you could use a dehydrator set to 118F for 4-5 hours, if you have that kind of patience.
  • Allow the toasted granola to cool completely, then stir in the raisins and store in an airtight container.
  • Serve with homemade almond milk, and enjoy!
