Pumpkin Granola

…and so begins The Great Pumpkin Dilemma.

You cook or bake something with pumpkin and end up with leftover pumpkin.  What to make…what to make?

I think you’ll be seeing a lot of “pumpkin dilemma” posts here in the next few weeks 🙂

Pumpkin Granola
from Baked Bree

5 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Combine oats, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and brown sugar in a large bowl.  In another bowl, combine pumpkin, syrup, applesauce and vanilla.  Pour wet mixture into dry mixture, and toss until oats are all coated.

Spread granola evenly onto a foil lined baking sheet.  Bake for 20 minutes, then remove from oven and stir around.  Bake for another 20 minutes or until granola gets crisp.  Take out of oven and let cool for 2 minutes, then add cranberries and almonds and mix.
