Pumpkin Pie Granola

It's now that day after Thanksgiving and the last thing you want to do is cook a full meal for your out of town guests. But guess what? You don't have to! Not only will nobody have room left in their stomachs for a big breakfast, but they're not going to expect you to put on a whole other production (they shoulnd't at least). But, if you REALLY want to surprise them, make a pumpkin pie granola! It is SO easy and you'll definitely have some left over pumpkin from the pies you were planning on making but gave up on (its ok, it happens to the best of us). I found the original recipe from Dashing Dish and it was a total hit with the kids at school (9 times out of 10 they're my guinea pigs).

What you'll need:
4 cups
Old fashioned rolled oats
2 tsp
Ground cinnamon
2 tsp
Pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup
stevia or other sugar replacement
1/2 tsp
Salt kosher
1 tsp
Baking powder
3/4 cups
1/2 cup
Applesauce (unsweetened)
3 tbs
agave nectar
1/2 cup
white chocolate chips

1. Preheat your oven to 325*. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
2. Mix together the dry ingredients in one bowl and the wet ingredients in another (NOT the chocolate chips). Mix together and spread in a single layer on the sheets.
3. Bake for 20 minutes, stir around, then back for another 20 minutes. Take out and let cool (it may feel a little mushy but as it cools, it'll harden).
4. Break up and once cooled, mix with the white chocolate chips!

enjoy :)
