Pumpkin Granola

Years ago, I discovered granola in the bulk section of my favorite health food store. Our entire family fell in love with it. Until, I read the label and noticed the atrocious amount of sugar present in my store-bought granola! I quickly set out to create my own granola recipe that the entire family would love. This one is a fantastic basic granola recipe. The pumpkin does not add any flavor, but instead allows us to cut back on the amount of oil used in the recipe while adding the nutritional wallop that pumpkin brings to the table. Cooking at …

My dad brought me a few bushels of apples from the apple tree that my husband and I were married under at my family farm. After hemming and hawing about what to make I decided on our favorite fall comfort dish—Apple Crisp. The recipe from my childhood which was handed down to us by my mom is delicious but it’s mostly butter and sugar. From my granola making experience I knew I could change things up and make apple crisp quite nutritious and very delicious! At the time of the apple drop­off my husband was at Ft. Gordon doing some training for the National Guard. We …
