Pumpkin Spice Granola

This homemade pumpkin spice granola, is easy to make at home. All the spices you would use for a fresh pumpkin pie, are mixed into this granola. Your kitchen will smell delicious! We love topping our vanilla yogurt with this.

This recipe is kid friendly. With a hint of spices, it won’t be overwhelming for kids. I packed a container with this pumpkin spice granola, and a yogurt carton, for our son’s school snack. He loved it!  

Bake an extra pan, and bag it up, to give as a gift!

Here’s what I did:

I preheated the oven to 300 F degrees. I lined a large baking sheet with a non-stick cooking mat, placed to the side. In a mixing bowl, I whisked together the oil, honey, pumpkin puree, and brown sugar. Stir in all the spices, oats, and pumpkin seeds. I made sure to coat everything well. Spread the granola into the pan, making a thin layer. Baked in the preheated oven for about an hour, stirring and flipping every 15 minutes. The granola should bake into a nice golden brown color.
