You guys know how much I love granola. So far i’ve shared my Maple PecanPeanut Butter Chocolate ChipCoconut and Nutella Skillet Granola. Now we can add this Pumpkin Pecan Granola to the list!

I always have granola on hand because it makes a super healthy snack or breakfast. Granola provides fiber and nutrients like iron and potassium. For extra fiber I added nuts, pumpkin seeds and flax seeds.

This granola is loaded with tons of pumpkin flavor. It smells wonderful when it is baking in the oven. Perfect for Fall!

I love to serve the granola with milk or on top of greek yogurt!
