Anything pumpkin is a favorite fall treat, so I created this delicious and wholesome Pumpkin Granola to get my pumpkin fix. This recipe is simple in that it requires just 35 minutes.
Because it’s loaded with protein, fiber, and healthy fats, this granola makes the perfect breakfast or snack. I love mine Greek Yogurt, with a little almond milk or just on its own as a snack.
This recipe makes a great fall gift for a fun token of your love, for birthdays and other special occasions. Enjoy this favorite fall recipe and have a terrific weekend!
