Healthy pumpkin pecan granola sweetened with maple syrup and loaded with fall spices! I’m taking a timeout to enjoy the flavors of fall. Lightly sweetened homemade granola topped on yogurt or with my favorite milk as a cereal, is a wonderful way to-do so!
Crunchy bits of oatmeal loaded with pumpkin seeds and pecans. Once the granola turns golden brown, remove it from the oven and let cool completely. During the cooling process it will crisp up making it a lovely snack or breakfast topper! The kids enjoy it as is, and I enjoy topping it on yogurt or in a bowl with our favorite milk.
