    I know I have been posting a lot of recipes with pumpkin in them lately, but that’s just because it’s so darn good. :) This granola is great! I love the sweetness of the dried cranberries and the pumpkin really does give it a wonderful flavor. I think I had one bowl of this with milk…..the rest of it we ate straight out of the container as a snack!

    Pumpkin Cranberry Granola
    Pumpkin Cranberry Granola
    2 1/2 C old fashion rolled oats (not quick cooking)
    1/2 C canned pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling
    1/2 C 100 % real maple syrup
    1/2 C golden raisins
    1 C dried cranberries
    3/4 C chopped walnuts
    1 T canola oil
    2 ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
    1/2 tsp salt

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat or parchment paper. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well until the wet ingredients are evenly mixed. Spread out mix onto a baking sheet. Bake about 30 minutes, stir and spread mixture in an even layer again. Continue baking about 15 minutes more. Let cool completely and store in an airtight container.

    Feel free to try pecans instead of walnuts or different dried fruits. Fruit and nuts may also be omitted. Add granola to plain yogurt to kick it up a notch. Whatev. :)
