A healthy way to start the morning with the flavor of pumpkin pie! Yummy!
Here is a great way to use up your pie pumpkin and their seeds! My last post describes how I roasted pumpkin. This pumpkin pie granola is made with oats, almonds, roasted pumpkin and pumpkin seeds and a little sweetness from pure maple syrup. The special ingredient is flavoring it with pumpkin pie spice!
Pumpkin Pie Granola
4 C old fashioned oats
1/2 C sliced almonds
1/4 C roasted pumpkin seeds
2 TB butter
1/4 C pure maple syrup
4 heaping TB fresh roasted pumpkin or pumpkin puree
1 TB pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp salt
In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, almonds and roasted pumpkin seeds. In a small mixing bowl melt the butter, then add pure maple syrup, roasted pumpkin, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Mash up the roasted pumpkin into the mixture. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until all of the dry ingredients have been coated evenly. Spread onto two cookie sheets.
Bake in a 350° oven for 10 minutes, then stir. Bake for another 10-15 minutes until they start to turn golden brown.
