Nourishing Vegan Autumn Granola

Nourishing Vegan Autumn Granola is what you are going to want to have on repeat all fall long! i know that we’re not quite there, but if you want to get a head start on some fall goodies, this is a great place to start!

Nourishing Vegan Autumn Granola is really delicious and as per the title, nourishing!

with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and REAL pumpkin puree, you can’t go wrong.

the granola is sweetened with maple syrup and given a delicious seasonal flavor with pumpkin spice and real pumpkin puree.

if you’re anything like me, you’re going to have so many cans of half used pumpkin puree on hand this season, so finding ways not to waste any of it is key.

since Nourishing Vegan Autumn Granola calls for 1/3 of a cup, this is a fantastic way to use up leftover puree.

so, since Nourishing Vegan Autumn Granola calls for using real pumpkin puree and not just pumpkin spice, it’s not going to be super crunchy, particularly in the center.

the outsides will get pretty crispy but the center will be more chewy due to the moisture. i don’t mind this at all because i still love the texture, BUT, it’s an easy fix.

take the center clusters and bake them in the oven a few minutes longer! if they’re broken up into small clusters, a few min should do the trick.

also, Nourishing Vegan Autumn Granola is fabulous as a cereal. i do have a habit of turning my granola into cereal, whether it’s store-bought or homemade, it’s just so good.
