    I know what you’re thinking — pumpkin season is over, let’s move on to the holiday stuff.

    Hear me out here: I just could not resist making this. I love granola. I eat it in cereal, I eat it as a snack, I put them in my Greek yogurt, I just love love love granola. Not to mention, I still had pumpkin pie spice leftover so I really did have to make this (it also made my apartment smell guh-lorious!). It’s great to have this around the house — AND most importantly, it makes a great gift ;) You can put this in mason jars and tie a nice ribbon around it (with the recipe, of course) and you have a beautiful and delicious homemade present!

    There is nothing I don’t love about this granola. It’s got my favorite dried fruit, it’s got pumpkin spice covered oats, and it’s crunchy. I can’t stop picking at the tray. It’s going to be so unbelievably good in cereal or just a snack at work. Have I convinced you enough yet that even though the pumpkin season may be over, it’s still not too late to make this for yourself..or some coworkers..or family..or neighbors..you get the drift ;)
