I feel like pumpkin and squash have overtaken my kitchen lately.

It’s found it’s way into squash patties, refrigerator oats, bread, and now granola.

And you know what? I’m 100% okay with that.

There is just something so satisfying about a bowl of home cooked granola.

Easy, delicious, and so much more budget-friendly than the store-bought variety.

But the best part is how amazing it makes your house smell when it’s cooking.

Know what else is amazing?

That my newest obsession for oats has nothing to do with a refrigerator.

Seriously, it’s too cold for that.

  1. Reply […] This was nice, & must be incredibly healthy as it contains hardly any oil, but we all adored prefered the maple pecan & peanut butter honey versions, so probably won’t be making this one again. […]
