Pumpkin Spice Granola


Pumpkin, pepitas and cranberry bring a fall spice to breakfast granola for a brand new version of pumpkin spice.

It’s finally here! Pumpkin season, y’all! Does anyone else overload on pumpkin during October and November every year or is it just me? Hopefully I’m not alone.

Besides the amazing fall food (pumpkin, candy corn and apples, oh my!) and the fall fashion, I’m really loving decorating for fall now that we have our own place. I picked up some mums, white pumpkins and a few traditional pumpkins the other day for our front steps. It makes me so happy each time I come home now! I also  grabbed a few of these cute knit chevron pumpkins from Target to add a little bit of fall inside too.

If you are all about the fall vibes like me, you’ll love the recipe in today’s post. Not only is homemade granola easy to make, but this version is full of fall flavors like pumpkin, cinnamon and cranberry. Check out the below recipe for my Pumpkin Spice Granola- it’s the yummiest way to celebrate the season!

    I was just at Trader Joes and I can not get over how many pumpkin spice flavored items that had! I have yet to get a PSL, need to step up my fall game! This granola looks amazing and so easy to make, yumm!

    love how simple this recipe is! So many granola recipes just have way too many “things” in them. Clean & simple is where it’s at- definitely going to try this, especially since I have an open jar of pumpkin after some weekending pumpkin baking I did 😉

      Yay! Glad you are going to try! Let me know what you think. I tried to narrow down on the sugar in it too since there is so much other stuff going on. Let me know your thoughts or any tweaks 🙂
