There is NOTHING better than a fresh bowl of crisp, warm, pumpkin pecan flavored toasted oats with just a hint of cinnamon - especially during this time of the year! This granola is like one giant bowl of fall. I absolutely LOVE the flavors of pumpkin, pecan, and cinnamon mixed altogether combined with the warm, nutty texture of crunchy oats right out of the oven. It makes for the perfect breakfast, mid-day snack, or even dessert!
I have always loved granola, but store bought granola often includes way more sugar and processed ingredients than we are aware of. The average serving of granola from a store bought package can contain around 12g of sugar! I love making my own granola because I know exactly what ingredients are inside. This homemade pumpkin pecan granola only has 4g of sugar per 1/2 cup.

This is definitely one of my fall favorites and pairs great with a bowl of vanilla greek yogurt, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, or even alone as a grab and go snack. It is super easy to make and uses ingredients that are fairly common.
If you eat a gluten-free, dairy-free diet, this recipe is for YOU! Check out the ingredient list below. If you want to add a little extra protein in this granola, you can easily throw in 1/2 scoop of protein powder without affecting the recipe's consistency.
I use UNICO Nutrition's APOLLO protein powder. They have TONS of different flavors, but for this recipe I would recommend using the vanilla. You can use the code "BOWERS20" for 20% off on www.uniconutrition.com to try it for yourself.
