Description

I love using canned pumpkin to make oil-free granola, so I decided to pull together some classic dessert flavors to make this Healthy Pumpkin Pie Spice Granola Recipe. Whip up a batch for your family or to give out as gifts to friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers. Serve with milk or my favorite way – over yogurt.
