pumpkin granola recipeI know that it is most important meal of the day, but I am not much of a breakfast eater. I like to snack on things, but not eat a whole meal.  Plus, I do not drink milk.  I have never had a glass of milk in my entire life. I think that if I did, cereal would be what I would eat.  It is sweet, crunchy, and easy to make first thing in the morning. I am not exactly what one would call a “morning person”. Granola is my go to breakfast.  It is so easy to make, keeps for awhile, and I can put some in a Ziploc bag and run out the door.  I like this version for fall because it is spicy and sweet, and of course has pumpkin in it.  I cannot seem to get enough pumpkin these days.  I also like to make granola because you can use whatever you have in your pantry to spruce it up.  Pepitas, pistachios, walnuts, peanuts, any kind of dried fruit you like.  I also used this pumpkin granola to make granola bars for my son’s preschool snack.  So versatile!

  1. LOVE homemade granola! This looks heavenly!

  2. Good morning! My nephew just told me about your website via Facebook. He visits here often and thought I would like it too. I do! I used to keep homemade granola on hand all the time. Lately I haven’t made any and your Granola post has got me energized to get some in the oven. Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’ve been wanting to try pumpkin granola since Maria posted it. I’ll have to try it soon. I love eating breakfast. I could eat it twice a day.

  4. Whenever I make homemade granola I end up eating the whole lot. And not just for breakfast- it becomes my snack and occasionally my dinner too! Perfect for the fall season!

  5. I was honored to feature you on my site Bree….maybe some day we will share a glass of milk. ;)

  6. Sounds delish. The only problem – I can’t be trusted around granola!!

  7. Julia says:

    This looks awesome! I make granola about twice a week (it disappears quickly in my home), and am psyched to find an oil-free recipe that uses pumpkin. I’ll make this tonight. Would you also share how you made the granola bars?

    I am such a big fan of granola…so easy and healthy, not to mention delicious and extremely addicting… I have a few posts about it up as well. I love throwing in some ground flaxseed and/or wheat germ for a little health kick too!

  11. LB says:

    this might be a silly question…. how do i go from granola to granola BAR?

  12. This looks great and so easy to make. I have to admit that I carry a bag of dried cereal into the car with me every morning. This would be so much tastier.

  13. Maria says:

    Glad you liked the granola! It is one of my favorites!

  14. Valentina says:

    beautiful! i’d be snacking on this all day long!

  15. Great combination of flavors in this granola recipe. Sounds so good and healthy too. Your pictures look so pretty too!

  16. Denise @ TLT says:

    It’s been such a long time since I made my own granola and after seeing your wonderful version, I really don’t know why;) It’s about time to change that!

  17. Natalie says:

    This looks so healthy and delicious. I love granola with milk, in my yogurt and on its own. I will definitley try this recipe!

  18. Kelly Gill says:

    This sounds AWESOME! I’m going to make a few batches and share with my neighbors. Thanks!

  19. Dixie says:

    I just made this and it’s wonderful!!! I know my family will love it, too. As an added bonus, my house smells like fall from baking it!

    • bakedbree says:

      I am so glad Dixie, it smells like fall doesn’t it?

      • Dixie says:

        My daughter (9) had the brilliant idea to toss in a handful of chocolate chips, so it’s pumpkin chocolate chip granola. Very yummy!! She has requested I make a nut free batch this weekend so she can take it to school for her snacks next week. So, you know what I’m doing this weekend!!

  20. I can’t get enough pumpkin right now, and now I NEED this too. I got some ideas for some tweaks that will customize for “loves”. Looks great!

  21. I love the idea of “seasonal granola.”

    LOVED this! I made a double batch and shared it with my neighbors. It’s great with Greek yogurt- my fav breakfast (I’m not a huge breakfast girl either). Thanks!

  31. I just pulled a batch out of the oven and, man oh man, does it smell great! Thanks for the wonderful recipe :)
