Nutty Pumpkin Granola

22

 

I recently made some pumpkin muffins (which I’ll post soon) and had a little leftover pumpkin puree.  After feeding part of it to Zachary (he loved it, of course), I decided to use the rest to make some pumpkin granola.  I can’t believe that it’s practically mid-November and this is only my first pumpkin post of the year.  Insanity.   We’ve been lucky to have some very fall-like weather this week, which makes it a perfect opportunity for autumnal flavors.  Normally by now, I think fall is a distant memory and we start looking to hire snow shovelers.

I used a recipe that I frequently make as the base for this pumpkin granola.  It smelled so great as it was baking up and of course it tasted delicious, too.  One thing I love about this granola recipe is that it doesn’t use any refined sugars or butter or oil.  It’s quite healthy and the perfect complement to some Greek (or other) yogurt.
