When it’s time for pumpkin spiced everything, make this delicious fall recipe for pumpkin spiced granola. It’s a great way to make your house smell like fall, and it tastes delicious on all sorts of things from yogurt to ice cream.
Two weeks ago I posted my new favorite pumpkin spiced muffin recipe, this week I’m continuing the trend and posting my latest pumpkin spiced recipe for granola.
It’s no secret that I love granola. I probably post new granola/ granola bar recipes about 2-3 times a year. It’s one of the cheapest and easiest snacks to make at home. Have you seen the prices of granola at the grocery store? A small 8 ounce bag can cost as much as $8. It’s crazy. I find it so crazy because granola isn’t much more than oats, nuts and spices. The most expensive ingredient is nuts, but that shouldn’t make a bag of it cost $8. Needless to say, I never buy granola.

After making the pumpkin spiced muffins I was in the mood for more fall themed food. Can you believe that? Even after eating 4 batches of muffins, I wanted more. I’m telling you, I love fall. The funny thing is that I don’t even like the pumpkin spiced latte from Starbucks. Blasphemy, right? I love all things Starbucks, and I love all things fall. Why don’t I love them together? Even I don’t get it.
What I do love is for my house to smell like a pumpkin spiced latte. Which is exactly what my house smelled like after making this pumpkin spiced granola. Even Tom walked into the house and said, “Oh, it smells like fall in here”. I hate to sound like a boring old housewife, but that made my day.[bctt tweet=”Make this pumpkin spiced granola and your home will smell just like fall!”]
