PUMPKIN SPICED GRANOLA
We love pumpkin spice year round but especially during the fall. This granola mixture is one of our families favourites all year long. We eat it on vanilla (vegan) yogurt, with almond milk and even by itself. My kitchen is my favourite place to be during the cooler days and holiday seasons so I would LOVE to hear some things you would want me to prepare or create. Please comment so I know, it’ll help guide my content creation and hopefully show you how absolutely anything can be made vegan. Look forward to hearing from you and hope everything is having a beautiful fall. I also have to note that my family couldn’t wait for me to photograph it (you should see Harlow eat it! I DIE!) so it’s basically crumbles in the photos. Yours should be a little more dense with lots of seeds and nuts. Heavenly little treat for fall.
