Pumpkin Crunch Granola

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

After my recent trip to Canyon Ranch, I was inspired to make my own version of their incredible Pumpkin Crunch. I kept the pumpkin seeds as the base since they are highly nutritious and a great source of fiber, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus, but I mixed in some rolled oats for even more nutrients and satiety. And, well, I just love granola-y granola, ya know? I also changed things up with golden raisins, in addition to dried cranberries, and simplified the cooking method, so this recipe can be thrown together in a matter of minutes! Enjoy!

Pumpkin Crunch Granola


  • 1/2 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1.5 tsp canola oil
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins


  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Lightly spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine ingredients and mix well.
  3. Spread mixture on a baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  5. Store in a tightly sealed container.



Recipe makes 10-ish (1/4 cup) servings 



  1. mmmm that sounds fabulous! Have you tried Kitchfix Paleo Granola? It has a lot of the same things but is coconut oil. I reviewed it a week or so ago, but they just sent me their new flavors. I’m all over the granola and trail mix for marathon training. Glad you are too!

  2. i’ve recently started making my own granola with all the similar ingredients except I use agave nectar instead of the oil. It’s so good and a little more crunchy, but you have to watch it kind of closely since I feel like it could burn pretty fast if you’re not paying attention:)
