All the dry ingredients in the bowl

I took some Pumpkin Grain-Free Granola along for a weekend away with girlfriends to the Oregon coast. Of course, I didn’t tell them the granola was a test to see if it was tasty enough for the blog.  It was gobbled up quickly. So that was a vote, yes.

My friends and I having a fabulous time on the Oregon coast.

By the way it was a fun, fun weekend! I’d do it again in a moment!

Pumpkin Grain-Free Granola is yuumy to eat plain or as a parfait with plain or vanilla yogurt and with either chopped crunchy apples or sliced pears.

You will want parchment paper or a silpat mat to place on the baking pan to bake your granola.

Easy way to spread out the granola

I used a silpat mat, which is an environmentally friendly decision.   Because the Pumpkin Grain-Free Granola is baked at a low temperature and if you are like me and toast your pecans and almonds in large quantities to munch on during the week, you may chop your already toasted nuts and the added baking time will not burn them. You don’t have to use already toasted nuts…

See the granola is done!

This is yummy enough to use as bottom crust layer for a Mascarpone tart too!  Ok, get your utensils ready, on your mark  get set go!   Let me know what creative options you come up with for this recipe, ok?

    Mixture will be thick, put granola onto Silat/parchment lined baking sheet pat it out with the bottom of measuring cup or large mixing spoon to spread granola out as thin as possible.
