How to Customize This Recipe For Pumpkin Granola
Customizing this pumpkin granola recipe is super easy. While I don’t usually recommend making too many changes to a recipe, here are some that will satisfy and ensure you get the yummy results you deserve.
Change up the Nuts + Seeds
For the 1 ½ cups of nuts called for in this pumpkin granola recipe, I used ¾ cup pecans and ¾ cup pumpkin seeds. You totally do not have to do this! You can use any combination of seeds and nuts to your liking. Just make sure to keep it to 1.5 cups. 😉
Swap Some Nuts for Dried Fruit
Not a fan of nut- and seed-rich granola recipes? You can swap some of the nuts/seeds for chopped dried fruit. Some lovely add-ins would be dried cranberries, raisins, cherries, or even dried apricots (no one will see this coming haha).
Switch up the Spices
When developing this recipe, I leaned toward more traditional pumpkin-enhancing spices, such as pumpkin pie spice and ground cinnamon. You might feel like going a little saucier. You could add in a pinch of ground black pepper to enhance the pumpkin flavor or go a bit bolder with ground ginger. It’s up to you!
Add in Chocolate!
After you finish baking your granola, pour the still-hot granola into a heatproof mixing bowl. Then, add in about ½ cup chocolate chips (white chocolate chips can be a fun addition). Stir and fold the chocolate into the pumpkin granola. The chocolate will melt and coat the granola, cooling into sweet granola clusters.
