Grover Arnold and me, taking a break from serving up Spicy Brown Sugar and Pumpkin Granola at the Junior League Tour of Kitchens 2012
Homemade granola is so easy to make. I love this version with pumpkin puree. Don’t like pumpkin? Try replacing the puree with applesauce.
Preheat oven to 325º F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat.
In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients; mix well.
In a small bowl, whisk together wet ingredients.
Combine wet with dry ingredients; mix until well coated and combined.
Spread mixture out onto baking sheet, creating an even layer.
Bake 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes, until golden brown.
Cool in the pan on a rack for 20-30 minutes.
Store in an airtight container.
