Move over packaged granola! You’ve got to try my Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Granola recipe.
I started making my own granola last year in a Crock Pot (I use this one) and haven’t looked back since. I started with a traditional Almond, Vanilla and Cranberry combo and then moved onto a cute Christmas Granola. Both of those seemed well received by you guys, so this year I decided to expand my Crock Pot Granola repertoire with a Pumpkin Spice version!
After a few tests, my Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Granola recipe could NOT be easier or tastier!
I know the world seems to be on a bit of a pumpkin spice overload lately… but this is the real deal. It tastes good, the flavors actually fit into the granola well and it’s made with actual pumpkin.
I’m not obsessed with pumpkin spice, but when it makes sense like this, I’m ALL IN. And you should be too!
The flavor comes from some good old fashioned pumpkin pie spice and real pumpkin puree, which is a must have in the kitchen this time of year. I put it in my smoothies, overnight oats or even these No Bake Pumpkin Pie Bites.
The whole thing comes together with only 8 simple ingredients, which makes it such a fast recipe. The only trick is to leave the Crock Pot lid slightly cracked when cooking so the moisture will escape and the granola will not be soggy.
I thought about adding some cranberry to the mix to add color, but at the end of the day I wanted to keep more with the traditional pumpkin flavors. Instead I did real pumpkin puree, pecans and pumpkin seeds… which are all so authentically pumpkin spice.
And by golly… my Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice Granola recipe turned out so perfect! I can’t wait for you to try it.Love this #pumpkin treat from Running in a Skirt - Healthy Crock Pot Pumpkin Spice GranolaClick To Tweet
