This month I had the opportunity to write about another blog for The Secret Recipe club. In addition to Mostly Food and Crafts, I picked up an orphaned blog, That’s Some Good Cookin’. I didn’t even know where to start to narrow down a choice…there’s so many recipes I want to try!
I wanted to get this post up as soon as possible so I had to look and see what I had in my pantry and I settled on Terri’s recipe for Pumpkin Pie Granola. I was actually looking for a new granola recipe over the last couple of weeks and this one did not disappoint. I omitted the shredded coconut in Terri’s recipe but kept everything else the same. It was the perfect addition to a bowl of vanilla bean Greek yogurt. I’ll need to hide the container from my daughter – she’ll eat the entire thing if I don’t!
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup canola oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
In a large bowl, mix together the oats and pecans. In a small bowl, add the remaining ingredients. Stir until smooth. Add the wet ingredients to the oats and mix until all the oats are well coated. Pour the granola onto the prepared baking sheet. Spread the granola in the pan.
Allow the granola to completely cool before adding in any dried fruit or chocolate chips.
