Autumn, Breakfast

Pumpkin granola

This comforting breakfast recipe will see you through October - and even possibly November if you don‘t eat it daily!

The pumpkin purée can be from a tin of unsweetened - not the pie filling variety - or, you can make your own by purifying a couple of leftover roasted wedges.

Easy to adapt, just swap in the nuts and seeds as you wish. You could try using a 750g bag of muesli base that includes barley, rye, oat and wheat flakes.

As a real treat, serve with sticky warm cinnamon and maple apple wedges. Also delicious with raw or baked fruits.
