Pumpkin Quinoa Granola wBanner

I realize it’s not typically the time of year reserved for all things pumpkin filling up your Instagram and Pinterest, but hear me out. Is it ever really a bad time for this awesome orange squash? I didn’t think so! Which is why I was ecstatic when I realized I still had some canned pumpkin in my pantry that needed to be used up.

Among other things I found in my pantry were all of the ingredients to make granola. This is seriously a pantry clean out recipe and can be altered to include whatever you have on hand. I just happened to have leftover goji berry trail mix, so I threw that in the mix, but any combination of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit will do the trick.


The final product is a combination of soft clusters with sweet and crunchy bits that make the perfect snack or topping anytime, anywhere! Added bonus: It’s cheaper and healthier to make your own. A lot of store bought granola has a lot of added oil/sugar, so by creating your own, you can enjoy this version that much more!

What do you put in your granola?
