More pumpkin granola


Who wants more granola?? ME ME ME!!! I've been chowing up all kinds of homemade granola as of late, tossing in whatever I have on hand! Seriously that's why I love granola so much, toss in whatever you like and you are good to go! Here's my latest version:

So this picture isn't of the below recipe granola... it's the batch previous... but I never took pics of this last batch... whooops!

This is my go to wet mixture:
Mix the following in a small bowl:
2 cups pumpkin puree
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cloves
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup brown sugar

Then this is my random whatever on hand dry mixture basics:
In a very large bowl toss together
5 cups old fashion oats
2 cups kamut puffs
1 cup sweetened coconut
1 cup chopped nuts of some kind

Mix wet into dry, toss to coat, bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes, tossing every 10-15 minutes so it doesn't burn. Let cool and then toss in raisins or other dried fruit.

I just love the pumpkin mix, and I LOVE LOVE the addition of the coconut.

CHOW!!!

I've never made granola. You have officially made me want to make granola. This looks like a great recipe for my first attempt!

I made something very similar with the pumpkin seeds from Halloween - its in the freezer now and I've been munching all month. Yummy!

I love granola but I have never tried it with pumpkin. Great idea!

Seems crazy that the pumpkin puree dries to a crisp like this. Perfect!

I love homemade granola. I have a couple of go-to recipes, but I really need to get creative like you do and just mix up some stuff I have on hand. Your recipes always look so good!

Pumpkin granola sounds excellent! I would love that for breakfast tomorrow morning, or for a midnight snack :)

YUM!! Looks great... I should go make ours right now... thanks for giving me a good kick in the butt :o) LOL!!!

Steph said...

There can never be too much granola! I still have to try your pumpkin version, but I have a feeling it will take a lot of patience with so much liquid from the pumpkin going into it. I always sneak pieces of granola during the baking process because it takes forever!!
