If you’ve been looking for a fall recipe that makes you feel all warm and cozy, this granola will hit the spot! It’s sweet and cinnamony (it’s my blog so I’m allowed to take any word and add a -y to the end and it’s okay).
I love granola on top of yogurt, smoothies, even oatmeal!
This granola is packed full of almonds and pumpkin seeds. There are only natural sugars from honey.
Of course, all granola should be eaten in moderation… but I wouldn’t blame you for sitting down and eating the entire batch 😉
2 cups oats
1 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup safflower oil
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1 TBS pumpkin pie spice
1 TBS cinnamon
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Mixture should be gooey and pretty sticky. If you feel it is too dry, add more honey or oil to your liking. I like A TON of spice, so I added more pumpkin pie spice until I felt like it was saturated in a cinnamon, nutmeg bath of fall wonder.
Preheat oven to 250F. Spread mixture onto a baking sheet so a tin layer covers the baking sheet.
Bake for 45 min. Each 15 minutes, stir the mixture around so each oat browns evenly. At 45 minutes, if the mixture looks browned and the seeds are soft, it’s done! If you think it could go another few minutes that’s fine- each oven is different.
When granola is still hot, pour into a bowl and allow to cool. It will cool into one huge chunk- then you can break it up into big clusters. If you let it cool on the pan, you won’t get those great clusters 🙂 We all know the clusters are the best part!
