Ingredients

  • 300 g (3 cups) jumbo rolled oats
  • 100 g (1 cup) pecans
  • 75 g (½ cup) pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 1 ¼ tsp mixed spice/pumpkin spice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 60 g (¼ cup) coconut oil
  • 80 ml (⅓ cup) maple syrup
  • 80 g (⅓ cup) pumpkin puree
  • 40 g (3 Tbsp) light brown soft sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 140 g (1 cup) dried cranberries

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 160C/320F/gas mark 3. Line a roasting tray with baking parchment.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the oats, pecans, pumpkin seeds, mixed spice and salt.
  • Place the coconut oil, maple syrup, pumpkin puree, sugar and vanilla extract in a pan over a low heat and stir until melted and smooth.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir really well until everything is well coated.
  • Tip the mixture into the prepared roasting tray and spread it out into a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes then give it a good stir and return to the oven for a further 20 minutes until lightly golden. It will not yet feel completely dry to the touch but will crisp up as it cools.
  • Leave to cool on the tray. If it doesn't become crisp when it cools then you can return it to the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Once it is cool, stir in the dried cranberries then transfer to an airtight container.
