Fall has officially arrived! And around here that means it’s “pumpkin time” – one of my favorite times of year for baking! I get so excited when I see the market brimming with sweet pumpkins fresh from the field, and of course, the shelves filled with canned pumpkin puree too. I can’t help but turn on the oven and start baking up lots of delicious pumpkin treats!
This week alone, I’ve already made my popular grain-free Pumpkin Muffins twice to bring to various breakfast meetings, since they’re always a huge hit! And this morning, I just had to make my personal favorite – Pumpkin Pie Porridge – the ultimate warm and creamy breakfast for cool Autumn mornings!
Another breakfast favorite around here is granola. We adore it solo with a splash of almond milk, as a sweet and crunchy addition to Fruit & Yogurt Parfaits, and it also makes a wonderful afterschool snack. In fact, you might say we’re just a little nuts about granola!
That’s why when I started thinking about sharing a new fall-inspired recipe with y’all, the first one that came to mind is my scrumptious Pumpkin Spice Granola! This delightful granola is not only gluten-free and grain-free – it’s also dairy-free and egg-free as well.
This crunchy pumpkin pie flavored treat is a delightful spin on my popular Vanilla Cinnamon Crunch Granola. If it’s your first time making granola, be sure to check out my “How to Make Grain-Free Granola” photo tutorial to learn just how easy (and delicious!) it is to make your own homemade granola.
In fact, I should probably warn you … with just one bite, you may find yourself becoming a little nutty over homemade granola, too!
