Pumpkin- hands down one of my favorite foods. And can I just tell you how incredibly good for you it is? Low calorie, full of fiber, healthy carbs, beta-carotene, anti-oxidants and did I mention just how super filling it can be!
One of my friends was crying about missing granola earlier this week. Sure thing, store-bought varieties are full of sugar and excess not-so-healthy fats. But it can be good for you!!!! Make it at home, lighten it up and lay on the sweet spices in a hefty way that will have you falling back in love with FALL PUMPKIN GRANOLA. oh yes!
- 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 1/4 cup golden flaxseeds
- 1 to 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (I like lots, but use less if you want)
- 4 packs stevia
- 2 tbsp pure maple syrup (grade b ideally)
- 1 egg white
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
Preheat over to 275 degrees F. Spray a non-stick baking sheet with cooking spray.
Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack until totally cooled. Store in an air tight container.
This is so yummy sprinkled on thick greek yogurt with roasted apples or sliced figs.
