Pumpkin Spice Granola with Chia & Almonds

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.
