Healthy Pumpkin Granola #heathy #vegan #autumn

October is almost over and I havn’t been making a single autumn-ish post yet. That’s a disaster!

I really don’t know why. I mean – autumn is my all time favourite season. And I love pumpkin, apples, pears and everything spiced. Good thing I have a couple of autumn-ish ideas to make while it is still autumn.

I know what you think. Another granola recipe?

Yes, I decided to make one more. I simply love homemade granola. I really love the big crunchy pieces of nuts and oatmeal. And the reason why I always make granola myself is (as I’ve said before) that the ones you buy are always way too sweet (and often un-healthy as well). Yeah, I might lack a sweet tooth.

Despite the small amount of sweetener in this recipe (compared to other recipes) this granola still tastes heavenly and quite sweet.

BTW – The quest post over at Hello Healthy Eating! should be up sometimes during next week. So exited!

  4. I like the sound of this recipe. I bet pumpkin adds such a nice twist to this granola.

    I am someone with Fructose Malabsorption so I changed your recipe around a bit to have lower fructose Butternut squash instead of Pumpkin and to use plain raw sugar rather than maple syrup. I made a few other adjustments and I really liked the results. I posted it on my FructMal blog (https://jointhypermobilitysyndrome.wordpress.com/2016/06/07/low-fructose-vegan-pumpkin-granola/) and gave you credit for original idea. I really am enjoying your recipes. Thanks!
