All right every body! It is time for #pumpkineverything ! It is all over facebook, pinterest, everywhere. I’ve been holding onto this recipe for gluten-free pumpkin granola for awhile now because I had to wait until it was almost fall so that it would be acceptable for me to jump on the pumpkin wagon.

I’m a sucker for homemade granola. When I was a little girl we always had homemade granola for breakfast. It just brings back so many good memories. I remember helping my mom measure the honey and oil, pouring it over the oats and stirring it until everything is all sweet and sticky. It is even better with pumpkin!

Just a hint of cinnamon, with the sweet honey and the crunchy oats and everything all enveloped in pumpkin. I also threw in some chia seeds, ground flax seeds, dried cranberries, and some pumpkin seeds. I had to add pumpkin seeds..because pumpkin! You can add different mix-ins if something else tickles your fancy. I love coconut in my granola!

      Hi Simone,
      Oats actually do not have gluten in them by nature. The problem is cross contamination in processing. The good news is that certified gluten-free oats are now readily available and are pretty easy to find. I even see them at wal-mart. There isn’t anything that I can think of that would be a good substitute for the oats, but if you think of something let me know.
