Pumpkin Spice Granola

IMG_3772

This is a simple recipe you can make ahead and store in an glass jar as pictured to take with you all week.  It makes a great breakfast on the go or just a snack.  There is a salty/sweet factor that pleases adults and kids alike.  I eat it alone, but you can surely add it to milk or yogurt.  It’s completly grain free and completely flavor-FULL! Happy noshing!
