This is my "Big Batch" Granola that I make when we run out. Granola is one of the things I learned to make years ago when I realized how much sugar is in the store-bought stuff. Pumpkin has it's own sweetness and is a good source of Vitamin E, Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron, Magnesium and Phosphorus and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Riboflavin, Potassium, Copper and Manganese. Chia Seeds are added as they are rich in fiber, heart-healthy omega-3 fats, protein and vitamins including manganese, phosphorus, copper, selenium, iron, magnesium and calcium. 1/2 cup over our favorite yogurt or just with some Almond Milk is a family favorite and a highly satisfying start to the day. It's great for a quick breakfast as you're headed out the door too! I add the chia seed and chopped almonds to the liquid ingredients so they better stick to the oatmeal. Otherwise they often end up at the bottom of the granola bin.
