Pumpkin Granola

I've been making my own granola for about a year now and I can't believe how delicious it is.  I have several favorites, including Peanut Butter, and Vanilla .  My holiday granola recipe is this Pumpkin Granola.  Topped with dried cranberries and chopped dried apples it is a great addition to my granola recipe collection.

Pumpkin Granola

3 cups oats
1 c shredded coconut
1/2 c wheat germ
1 c rice krispies
1/2 c sunflower seeds
1/2 c  pumpkin puree
1/2 c honey
1 t vanilla
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4 t ground ginger
dash salt
dried cranberries
dried chopped apples

Stir together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl, stir together the pumpkin puree, honey and seasonings.  Add to dry ingredients and stir throughly, until well coated.

Spread on a large cookie sheet, bake at 250 degrees for an hour, stirring every 15 minutes. 

Remove from oven, cool.  Store in an airtight container.  Top with cranberries and apples before serving. 

Note- this is not my original recipe, however I don't remember where I found it.  My apologies to the original creator.
