In a large bowl combine oatmeal, nuts and coconut. If you are adding seeds add them know too.
In a medium size saucepan, add syrup, oil, vanilla and salt. Bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in pumpkin puree.
Immediately pour over oatmeal mixture. Toss.
Pour granola onto a cookie sheet with rimmed sides.
Every 15 minutes, gently toss granola. After about 45 you should start to smell the granola and see a change in color. It will start to darken. I let my granola bake for 1hour, stirring it every 15 minutes.
Remove from oven. I sprinkled some brown sugar over this batch while still hot and gently mixed. This is optional but does add a nice look and additional sweetness to the granola.
Cool and store in tightly sealed container.
This can be stored for up to one month. After that quality of flavors may start to break down.
