This Easy Pumpkin Granola Recipe incorporates pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice for a delicious fall granola you'll want to eat all year long.
With fall upon us, it's time for all things pumpkin!
I'm not quite sure why we tend to keep pumpkin flavored foods relegated to the fall.
Sure, that is when pumpkin comes into season, but since most of us use canned pumpkin in this day and age, we can really have it ANY time of year.
If you do want to take advantage of those fresh pumpkins, you can use our easy Instant Pot Pumpkin Puree recipe to make your own.
To add to the roster of DELICIOUS pumpkin foods, we have an Easy Pumpkin Pie Granola Recipe. With both pumpkin itself and pumpkin pie spice, along with nuts, it really gives you the taste of autumn in a bowl!
This pumpkin pie granola is perfect just as it is for breakfast with a little milk, or topping yogurt or cottage cheese, or for a snack.
Homemade granola is also great in a yogurt parfait or sprinkled on top of ice cream.
Whip up a batch and put it in Mason jars tied with a pretty ribbon as holiday hostess gifts or as little place setting favors at your Thanksgiving dinner. It's very versatile!
