pumpkin granola // pistachio + coconut

Pumpkin Cranberry Granola // pistachios + coconut
Before November is up Imma going to squeeze one last pumpkin recipe in before we are hit with the onslaught of all things Christmas.

A recipe over thanksgiving only called for a bit of pumpkin puree- I found myself with leftover puree and decided to put it to good use. First with this granola and second with an awesome pot of soup which I posted over on instagram.

Homemade granola is too simple not to make and way cheaper than store bought. A few simple ingredients and you have yourself a custom granola in an under an hour.

Coconut oil is a must for me- along with a dried fruit, some type of nut and of course seeds.

My sweetener varies- maple syrup, orange juice, agave.

Chia or Flax are my typical go to, but hemp seed hearts are my favorite seed to add in when I have them on hand.

You could totally stir this up without the wet ingredients and have yourself some pretty awesome mueseli!

  1. I don't use pistachios very often, so this looks like a good way to use some. I might have to add some sort of chocolate as a variation :-)

  2. I would make a cinnamon maple granola and use it to top ice cream!

  3. The coconut would be perfect for a toasted coconut granola, plus I would add dried mango for a tropical twist.

  4. your version looks pretty darn good so I would probably make that with the addition of some dried cherries.

  6. I would start by making this version - I love making my own granola (so far, my favorite is a maple kind) and think pistachios are the perfect salty / nutty compliment to spiced granola. Thanks for the opportunity to win!
