Pumpkin Granola Is Our New Favorite Fall Breakfast Treat
Recipe: Wholesome Halloween Granola
If you love granola, you're going to want a jar of this version in the kitchen all fall along. There's a double dose of pumpkin, along with wholesome ingredients like oats, nuts, seeds, and just a splash of maple, for a breakfast that tastes like the season. And since Halloween is on the horizon, we also added a handful of mini chocolate chips because we also deserve a little treat to help get the day started.
Give Your Granola Some Real Pumpkin Spice
One of my big pet peeves is when items are called "pumpkin spice" but contain no actual pumpkin.
Not here! There is a real dose of pumpkin purée in this recipe, plus the fragrant spice medley of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger that gives pumpkin spice-flavored foods their mass appeal. This mixture coats all the ingredients and finds its way into all the nooks and crannies of the crunchy clusters.
Stick to the amount of purée given in this recipe; if you add too much, the granola is likely to turn out soft and soggy.
