  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup hemp seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ cup vanilla plant-based protein powder (see note)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar, maple syrup, or honey
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • cup dried fruit , such as dried cranberries


  • Preheat oven to 300°F/150°C. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine oats, nuts, and seeds in a large bowl. Stir together.
  • In a bowl combine the spice, protein powder, ground flax, water, syrup, and olive oil. Stir together then drizzle over oats mixture, stirring to ensure everything is coated. 
  • Spread uncooked granola evenly across the baking sheet. Press it down gently into the pan to help form clumps while baking. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with dried fruit. Allow cooling completely on pans. Transfer to a lidded container and keep at room temperature for up to 10 days.



I used Vega Organic Protein Powder which has some sweetener to it. If you choose one with minimal sweetener, you'll want to adjust the amount of syrup used in this recipe accordingly.
