Pumpkin Hazelnut Granola

standard October 9, 2014 Leave a response

I still cannot bring myself to cut open my perfect fall pumpkin. But I wanted to share a pumpkin recipe this week, so I caved in and bought my first can of pumpkin puree of the season. Thankfully, this granola is oh so worth it!

I do not even remember the last time I bought a box of cereal. I have gotten so used to making my own, usually muesli, oatmeal, or granola. My fridge has a designated space for my designated cereal jar, and some recipes have thankfully lasted me a few weeks for quick morning meals in between traveling. This recipe will definitely not make it through next week. It is full of spicy, crunchy, seedy goodness. With just a touch of sweetness. I love to eat it straight up, with banana slices and a bit of almond milk. You could also sprinkle a tablespoon on top of a Sweet Potato Spice Smoothie bowl. Give a little crunch to a salad. Or sneak a handful straight from the jar.
