If you are looking for a healthy and tasty fall treat this Pumpkin Granola Recipe will be perfect. This week I purchased a bunch of plain yogurt for breakfasts and for baking. I really like adding granola to my breakfast yogurt to give an added crunch and flavor. Since it’s fall and my daughter and I LOVE pumpkin spice flavors I decided to make us some Pumpkin Granola to enjoy this week for snacking and for our yogurt. This recipe was perfect. I added in some raisins, pecans and almonds. You can add in some of your favorite additions. Next time I make this Pumpkin Granola Recipe I am thinking of adding in some dried cranberries (yum).

My teen boys even tried the Pumpkin Granola and really liked it. I packaged up a few packages for them to add to their lunches this past week. Amazing that my picky boys actually liked something healthy, ha ha!
