Orange Citrus Granola

bowl of granola and orange slices with yogurt


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped
  • 46 drops orange vitality essential oil (optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 3 dried orange slices, cut into small pieces (Trader Joe’s)



  1. Preheat oven to 350º and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, pumpkin seeds, nuts, and toss to combine
  3. In a 2-cup glass measuring cup, melt the coconut oil
  4. Add the honey and salt to the coconut oil and whisk to combine and add to the dry ingredients. Add the orange vitality essential oils if using at this time and once everything is combined, pour onto a lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake for about 40 minutes, turning every 15 minutes with a spatula. If you want granola clusters, crowd the granola together on the sheet pan and it will stick together.  This also prevents the granola from burning.
  6. Add the dried orange slices after removing the granola from the oven and toss to combine.
