Pumpkin Granola

Granola Simplicity
Granola is simply defined as a combination of rolled oats, nuts and honey. Over the years it has reinvented itself into many combinations including rice, dried fruits, such as raisins and dates, ground flax seed, and coconut. Baked granola is the most popular, but there is a "muesli" style, which is a no-cooked type of granola. Granola is great for breakfast, snacks and even desserts and parfaits.
There is also the invention of the granola bars that have maintained the reputation of being a healthy snack even though the majority of them are actually loaded with sugar and salt. So be careful of the granolas, or even better, make your own. It's extremely easy to make granolas, you will save a lot of money, and it will be a lot healthier for you than the sugar powered, chemical laced granolas that we find in the grocery stores.

General Granola Recipe Guidelines
The basic process is to take a combination of dry products, mix #1, and mix them with a wet combination, mix #2. Then we need to spread thin the combined ingredients on sheet pans and place in a 250 degree oven for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours, stirring about every 15 minutes until golden brown. Then place in a bowl and mix with the #3 mix ingredients. And that easy, you have granola.
