Pumpkin Spice Granola

Yes, it is official. I am obsessed with fall flavors. Especially pumpkin, so expect to see a few more pumpkin recipes before the season is over.

I love granola and have been meaning to make my own for quite sometime. So of course I take the plunge when I come across Pumpkin Spice Granola!! This was a great snack, I enjoyed some with a homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice Granola
Recipe from Seconds for Satisfaction

You will need:

3 cups of old-fashioned oats
1 cup almonds, roughly chopped
1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
1 cup dried fruit
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 t salt
2 t cinnamon
2 t pumpkin spice
1 egg white, whisked


Preheat oven to 300 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the everything except for the dried fruit. Mix thoroughly so that all of the dry ingredients are evenly coated with the wet ingredients.

In a small glass, whisk the egg white until it becomes frothy and foamy (about 2 minutes). Mix into the granola mixture.

On a greased baking pan, spread the mixture out in an even layer. Bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, to get evenly browned.

Remove from heat and let cool completely. As it cools, it will begin to harden and form into one large piece. Once it is cooled, using your hands, break up the granola into clusters of your desired size.

Add in the dried fruit.

Store in an air-tight container or resealable plastic bag.
