Pumpkin Spice Granola Recipe

A few weeks ago I had the urge to create a pumpkin spice granola recipe. I’ve had the fall bug for a while and have been craving pumpkin everything! Pumpkin spice granola just sounded amazing to me! So, I searched for a recipe online to use as a guideline and came up with my own recipe that I’m quite satisfied with. I may do some tweaking to it in the future but, for now, I’m sharing it all with you.

It’s very mildly flavored. No overpowering pumpkin flavor or too much of one spice. I find it to be quite balanced. It smells  so AMAZING while baking, you’ll hardly be able to wait until it’s done to chow back on it. But, the wait will be worth it. To me, it tastes like Fall. 🙂 One of my two absolute favorite seasons!

Pumpkin Spice Granola 

4 1/2 C. Whole Oats

1 C. pecans, walnuts, or almonds

3/4 C. canned pumpkin

1/2 C. maple syrup

1/4 C. butter, melted

1 tsp. vanilla

2 tsp. Cinnamon

1/4 tsp. ginger

1/8 tsp. nutmeg

1/8 tsp. cloves

1/2 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Add oats, nuts, and spices to a mixing bowl and mix well. In a separate bowl, mix pumpkin, maple syrup, butter, and vanilla thoroughly. Add to oats and mix until combined. Pour onto cookie sheet, spread flat and place in oven. Cook for 40-60 minutes stirring every 10-15 minutes. DO NOT BURN! To test if done, take out a spoon of granola and let cool 3-5 minutes. If it’s crunchy, it’s done. 🙂

Let me know what you think! I really hope y’all enjoy this recipe as much as I do. More pumpkin and apple recipes coming soon!
