Extra crunchy granola made with actual pumpkin, toasted pecans, and a hint of maple syrup. It’s basically fall in granola form and you’re going to want to sprinkle it on everything this season!

I’m going to be honest here. My absolute favorite part about making granola at home is the smell it creates while baking in the oven. Move over Anthropologie candles, we’ve got a new addicting scent in town!

For real though, is there anything better than the smell of pumpkin, fall-flavored spices, and roasted nuts on a brisk fall day? I live for these moments.

Now let’s talk granola. I’m a bit of a granola drama queen. If my granola doesn’t contain clumps of crispy oats & roasted nuts held together by a not-to-sweet base, I’m not interested. Those granola brands that basically roll their oats in sugar are what is wrong with the world. They are trying to be something they aren’t. They’re kina a wanna-be healthy, nutritious snack but end up just like the other candy bars (not to say there’s anything wrong with that but let’s tell it how it is).

Okay, granola rant over.

On to my favorite granola this season - Fall Spiced Pumpkin Granola. It’s made with REAL pumpkin (yes, I’m talking pumpkin puree straight outta the can) and some nut butter which forms those oat & nut clusters I dream about. Spiced with all the fall feels like nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves, all you need is a warm fuzzy blanket and Michael Buble’ and yo'’re good.to.go!
