Harvest Granola

The next granola I made for Becky is really a compilation of my favorite fall flavors - pumpkin, maple, cranberries, pecans, and cinnamon. I also added pistachios for some extra color and crunch. Again, so easy to make, you can throw in whatever you'd like and make it your own!

Harvest Granola

4 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup pistachios
1 cup dried cranberries
2 tbsp. canola oil
1/4 tsp. salt


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl, toss to evenly distribute.
Pour into a parchment lined baking sheet in an even layer.
Bake for 20 minutes, toss with a fork, bake for another 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven, cool for 4 hours at room temperature, store in an air-tight container.

I think I like this one the best of all of your granola variations. Canned pumpkin just does something to me...it moves me.

This one sounds particularly delicious...I know that sometimes granola has a lot of calories/fat...do you know approximately how much this one has?
