I’m all about making something yummy in the morning for my kids. They’ve always loved granola (as have I throughout the years, too!). The second I heard about this Pumpkin Spice Granola recipe, I knew I needed to try it out! I’m not a big baker or cook, so I love anything that’s easy, peasy. I also know that my kids don’t usually go for anything off what they’re used to – but this Pumpkin Spice Granola was a win win for them!
