I don’t love all kinds of granola, but this one is my total fave. This is Pumpkin Spice Granola made from a recipe I came across on Everybody Likes Sandwiches. It’s just a little bit sweet, has kicky spices and is not dry and icky. And how cute is this batch housed in my new Daiso orange topped jar? 100 yen baby ($1.50)!
Ok, back to the recipe. This recipe is adapted from The Sprouted Kitchen: A Tastier Take on Whole Foods which I don’t own but will look for, based on the yummy granola. I make half the recipe on the Everybody Likes Sandwiches site because I only have one jelly roll size pan and half fits perfectly. I use rough chopped almonds (not walnuts), skip the sesame seeds and use dried cranberries. I don’t know what pumpkin pie spice is but I use 1/2 t cinnamon, 1/8 t cloves and 1/4 t each of nutmeg, ginger and cardamon. I bake it for about 40 to 45 minutes stirring it around every 15 minutes until the almonds are good and toasted. So good.
Back to my knitting now that I’m fortified with granola.
