pumpkin spice granola

This recipe will knock your socks off.

It probably is a bad idea to eat too much of it before going to boot camp at the gym…

…I’ll let you know in an hour…

You know when it is a good idea to eat a lot of it?

Any chance you get (besides before boot camp).

Enjoy.

Pumpkin Spice Granola [My recipe]

  • 1 1/2 C oats
  • 1 1/2 C puffed rice (or wheat)
  • 1/4 C chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 C chopped pecans
  • 1/4 C raisins
  • 1/4 C dried cranberries
  • 1/2 C pumpkin
  • 3 T sugar free maple syrup
  • 3 T applesauce
  • 1 t pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 C chocolate chips
Do this: Preheat oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper; you can also just give it a good spray of non-stick spray, if you prefer.
Combine oats, puffed rice, nuts, raisins, and berries. In a separate bowl, combine pumpkin, applesauce, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix well.
Pour wet mixture over dry and combine until evenly coated. Spread mixture evenly on baking sheet.
Bake for about 45 minutes, stirring regularly.
Remove from oven and let cool. Mix in chocolate chips.
Indulge.
