Pumpkin Pecan Granola

I liked the apple walnut granola {made with applesauce en lieu of oil} so I decided to try it with pumpkin puree.  I spiced the pumpkin puree with pumpkin pie spices and filled the granola with pecans and pumpkin seeds roasted with brown sugar, cinnamon and ginger.  Instead of honey I used maple syrup in keeping with the rich, autumn flavors of the granola.  Due to its similar consistency to applesauce the pumpkin worked great and added even more vitamins and nutrients to the already nutrient-loaded granola.  This pumpkin pie-spiced granola makes the perfect seasonal granola for autumn but it is appropriate all year long because the pumpkin flavor is not overpowering.  As with the apple walnut granola, you can use all pumpkin or you can use a mix of oil {a couple Tablespoons} and the rest pumpkin.
