Pumpkin Walnut + Maple Granola

Granola is a fantastic source of protein, fiber and healthy fats. It’s also a healthy option if you’re craving something sweet or crunchy. If you’ve never made granola before, trust me, this recipe is fool-proof! It’s the perfect compliment to homemade almond milk — or to snack on with your autumn latte. The fun thing about making granola is that you can customize any recipe to your liking. Try adding oats, a variety of nuts & seeds, and toss in dried fruit once its cooked & cooled. Here are a couple of my favorite combinations, but play around & have fun with it!

1-2 cups chopped walnuts

1 cup slivered almonds

1 tsp. vanilla extract
