Fall Treat: Pumpkin Granola

Sep 29, 2015

We absolutely love granola at my house for breakfast, lunch, as a snack, or after school meal. This pumpkin granola recipe is easy and sure to please you and your family’s taste buds. Just be sure to not overcook granola as the texture is similar to cookie dough, so it will continue to bake even after you remove it from the oven. This is also great to serve at Halloween parties or to give to friends, teachers and neighbors as a gift.
