Pumpkin Spice Granola

Homemade granola is the best, and it’s fun to make seasonal variations of it—like this Pumpkin Spice Granola! This autumn-themed granola is made with oats, hulled pumpkin seeds (pepitas), chopped pecans, and dried cranberries. And it’s spiced up with cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice. You can also add in other things like coconut flakes or sunflower seeds if you like. The hulled pumpkin seeds I used were already roasted and lightly salted, which worked really well in this granola. If you use raw hulled pumpkin seeds, you may want to add an extra 1/4 teaspoon salt to the recipe.

Banana Oat Muffins with Maple Syrup

I always seem to have ripe bananas in the kitchen and these muffins are a wonderful way to use them!

The batter has some healthy ingredients mixed in, like Greek yogurt to make them moist, canola oil or light olive oil, and quick-cooking oats. Cinnamon and nutmeg give these muffins a light spice flavor and the maple syrup drizzle adds the perfect amount of sweetness on top! And for any maple syrup overflow that drizzles onto your plate, you can dip your muffin in it as you’re eating it, which is a yummy thing to do!
