Pumpkin Granola

March 1, 2013 § 1 Comment

Have you seen the show Parenthood? I’m obsessed. It’s about four grown siblings with families living in Berkley. Yes, I realize that sounds super boring but really, it’s human drama. And I want to be a little like the matriarch when I’m elderly. She paints and over accessorizes and has an amazing house.
It’s about real life without being awkward. Bottom line is that I have watched a season and a half in about two weeks. If you’d like to join in my obsession it’s on Netflix.

You know what else I’m obsessed with? Granola. I really enjoy having homemade, non processed, delicious breakfast options and I’ve been on a total kick lately.

And this one? It’s pumpkin flavored with all the delicious spice flavor that comes along. I realize its the end of February but since it’s not the fall it means you don’t have to fight anyone else for the canned pumpkin. HOORAY.

Pumpkin Granola


  • 5 cups rolled oats
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup almonds
To Make:
1) Preheat oven to 325* F. Combine oats, spices and salt into a large bowl. In another bowl combine pumpkin, syrup and vanilla. Pour into dry ingredients and mix well.
2) Spread out evenly onto a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring once. Once it’s done, take out of oven and add cranberries and almonds.
3) Store in airtight container for up to two weeks. Enjoy!
