Pumpkin Granola is a a mixture of old fashioned and steel cut oats with pecans and pepitas to give it a little extra crunch, making it a delicious way to start your day!
I love oatmeal when I was pregnant with my first child I ate it every day! The only thing I like more than oatmeal for breakfast is granola, because it’s so crunchy and delicious.
This pumpkin granola is sure to please the pumpkin lover in your or your household this fall, enjoy and happy baking!
- 1 c old fashioned oats
- 1/2 c steel cut oats
- 1/2 c chopped pecans
- 1/4 c ground flax meal
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 6 Tbs pumpkin puree
- 1/4 c Dixie Crystals Dark Brown sugar lightly packed
- 1/4 c water
- 2 Tbs pure maple syrup
- 1/4 c peptitas lightly salted
Preheat your oven to 325º F and line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.
In a large mixing bowl stir together the oats, pecans, flaxmeal and cinnamon.
In a medium sized mixing bowl whisk together the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, water and maple syrup.
Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until thouroughly coated. Spread the mixture onto the baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes.
After the first 20 minutes, gently stir the granola so it will evenly bake. Check the granola in 10 minute increments until desired crispness is acheived, I prefer mine crunchy so about 40 minutes baking time total.

PRIZE#2 SWEETS & TREATS
We believe in flavor for all and opportunity for all. In the beginning, Rinaldo and Ezilda Torre visited family in Lucca, Italy.

A lot has happened since then, but our belief has remained the same: Flavor for All, Opportunity for All. It means that not only are the products we make inclusive and approachable, but so is our success. We believe everything starts with people, and the only way to truly succeed is to succeed together. Today, you can use more than 100 of our naturally flavored syrups, sauces and beverage bases in coffees, sodas, teas, smoothies, cocktails and more.

Cabot is giving one winner a gift box of assorted Cabot cheeses.
The farm families that own Cabot Creamery Co-operative love what they do. And they’ve been doing it for a long time—every single day since 1919. Almost 100 years later, we’re proud of our thriving farms, strong communities, and happy, healthy cows that produce the rich, buttery milk that we use to make Cabot’s award-winning cheese and dairy products. We like to think those awards mean we’re doing something right. Of course, you’re a big part of this too. If you love eating our cheese as much as we love making it, then we’ll get to keep doing what we do for generations to come.
