You know that Fall has arrived when EVERYTHING is pumpkin! Granola is not an exception. When I found this recipe from The Healthy Maven (www.thehealthymaven.com), I thought that the granola was pumpkin SPICED but for my surprise, it actually contained pumpkin puree. I advertise you, DO NOT BE SKEPTICAL! This granola is sweet and crunchy. I added walnuts (my favorite nuts) and raisins.
You’ll be asking yourself why is this granola so yellowish? Besides the pumpkin puree, what gave this granola the yellowish color was a bland of turmeric and ginger powder. So this Pumpkin Spiced Granola can be determined as medicinal too!
