Pumpkin Spice Granola - YUM!

Oh my goodness, I have found the best fall inspired snack. Where? Pinterest, of course!!! It is called Pumpkin Spice Granola and it is oh so yummy.  Please visit Joyful Healthy Eats for the original recipe.
 The recipe is super simple and I had everything on hand (which rarely happens).  I only made two minor adjustments.  I used walnuts instead of almonds and added extra dried cranberries.  I also think pistachios would be tasty.

We host Thanksgiving every year for both sides of our family.  I always like to send something home with everyone.  A couple of years ago I sent everyone home with a small loaf of homemade bread.  Last year, our guests received a bag of ingredients to make fresh stove top potpourri (see here).  I think this granola may be the gift to receive this Thanksgiving. :)
