A quick and easy recipe for Healthy Pumpkin Granola! This granola is delicious as a snack on its own, as a topping on morning oats, or any way you enjoy granola!
We had an amazing Thanksgiving celebration with our family! I am recovering from my food coma and my cheeks are no longer numb from laughing at all the fun stories! However, I need to regroup and get back on track with nutrition and exercise!
I love pumpkin! I made some pumpkin muffins to bring to our Thanksgiving celebration and had some leftover pumpkin puree. What is better than making a yummy pumpkin granola with the remaining pumpkin puree!
If you check out my Cherry Coconut Granola, I review some of my favorite things about making homemade granola! Besides being economical, granola is delicious and healthy! The flavor possibilities are endless!
What are some of your favorite granola flavors? Do you snack on granola or add in to Acai Bowls?
