I cannot believe how much I’ve truly dug into pumpkin spice this year.  I don’t know if it’s the colder weather we’ve had since early October or just really getting into the spirit of the season but I am Team Pumpkin Spice!

You know what else I love?  Granola!  One day I was craving some so I got out my usual ingredients of olive oil, honey, and oats. I had my coffee going and was thinking about some pumpkin recipes I could make for the blog and then immediately thought of the perfect substitute for my regular cinnamon that I add to the granola – pumpkin spice!

Then, what could be more ‘fall’ than dried cranberries Nothing!  Add my usual walnuts for that good brain health and voila! Breakfast is ready.

This Pumpkin Spice Granola recipe is so easy to make and ready in less than 25 minutes.  I do like it a little on the warm side so I eat a big bowl of it right after making it.  Such a great wholesome way to start the day.

How to make Pumpkin Spice Granola:

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

In a bowl mix the olive oil, honey, salt, pumpkin spice, and turmeric.  Stir to combine.

To the liquid ingredients add the oats.  Stir to combine completely.

Step-by-step directions of how to make Pumpkin Spice Granola.

Add parchment paper to a 9×13 pan.

Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.  Take the pan out of the oven and stir the granola, level back out and bake an additional 10 minutes.

Take out of the oven and let cool.

Once the granola *has cooled completely* add the dried cranberries and walnuts.

Serve with milk or yogurt.

Tips & Variations for Pumpkin Spice Granola:

  • Do not add the dried cranberries and walnuts until the granola has cooled all the way.  You will end up with burnt nuts and hard as rocks cranberries if you add them any earlier. 
  • Do you like crunchy granola?  Follow the same recipe just use a 12×18 sheet pan instead and spread out thinly over the whole sheet.
  • How to store the granola:  Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

And here you are…..

      I hope you enjoy it Stephanie! I like adding turmeric to anything sweet to kind of ‘hide’ the taste from my kids. It works great.

    I want some of this granola over a bowl of yogurt for breakfast… or over ice cream for dessert! It looks SO GOOD. Actually, I might just eat it by the handful!
