Pumpkin Spice Granola

When I found this recipe , I knew I had to make it. Spicy Pumpkin Granola is one of my favorite cereals and I have not had it in so long and besides, I love pumpkin anything. I was not sure that it would work out for me because my previous attempts to make Pumpkin Granola at home ended in failure, but then I am a much better cook now. I made this recipe last night and added in some Craisins that I happened to have in the house. It is very easy to make and I highly recommend it. I love the fact that this granola has no added fat (like oil or butter) in the actual recipe. I don't think that it needs any nuts but feel free to add them if you make it. I had mine with some vanilla yogurt this morning and it was delicious. Crunchy, slightly sweet and just sweet enough at the same time, and heart healthy. I didn't place it on parchment paper and it didn't stick. I know that you are all envying my Hello Kitty bowl =^ ^= If you have no Pumpkin Pie Spice, make your own
