Because it's October, and the leaves are starting to change and fall to the ground. Because Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner. Because I can't get enough of Fall and never want Winter to come. Because of all that, I am adding pumpkin spice to everything. First cookies. Now granola. I can't tell you when or where it will end. And granola it just wonderful in and of itself. Even without the pumpkin spice. You can have it for breakfast with milk or yogurt. As a snack on its own. Or over a creamy bowl of ice cream. Pumpkin spice granola just makes that much better. If for some reason you don't like granola or pumpkin spice, just make a batch of this granola and give it to a friend. While it slowly bakes, it will fill your home with the wonderfully warm scent of Fall.
