If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know that I love me some granola! And since fall happens to be my favourite season (besides summer of course), this snack recipe was a great way to mash two loves together, so PRESTO – my Pumpkin Pie Spiced Granola was created.

If you like this Pumpkin Pie Spiced Homemade Granola, you can also check out some of my other delicious granola recipes – like Fall Granola or Simple Granola, but I have to say that this one is a new favourite. There’s something about the combination of pecans, dried apricots, oats and pumpkin seeds toasted in peanut butter and pumpkin pie spice flavours that makes for such a warming fall breakfast, snack or dessert- you pick!

Did I mention that the little chunks of dried apricot resemble bits of pumpkin throughout the granola? I think this is such a festive and tasty addition! This granola is packed with pumpkin spice; it’s crunchy, sweet, salty and best of all – gluten free.

The main reason I love granola SO much is the fact that’s it’s so versatile. I mean, what can’t you add granola to? I even layered it throughout my Pumpkin Cheesecake Mousse Parfait and it was heavenly! It adds the perfect crunch to balance out the richness of the other layers.
