We have a few days left of pumpkin week and I have another fabulous recipe for you, Pumpkin Granola. It is so delicious. I personally love to eat it with some vanilla yogurt breakfast or just plain for a quick snack. I discovered this recipe from Maria over at Two Peas and Their Pod who adapted the recipe from Baking Bites.
This granola is very easy to make. Mine turned out on the softer side which I don’t mind at all. However, if you want a crunchier granola, I’m sure you could just cook it longer to dry it out. I think this would be perfect to make as a gift to give your Thanksgiving hostess. I’m sure she would really enjoy the day after the big meal. You just need a cute container or a cellophane bag tied with a pretty bow.
The pumpkin granola recipe calls for pepitas or raw pumpkin seeds. They are a light green color. I was able to find them in the bulk food section in the health food area of my Smith’s Marketplace. However, you can easily substitute the pepitas with almonds, walnuts, pecans, or even sunflower seeds if you can’t find them.
