When autumn rolls around, pumpkin spice everything pops up everywhere. And honestly, it's easy to overlook recipes flavored with the spices of pumpkin pie when every other food blogger is posting recipes about said spices. So do yourself a favor and  bookmark this incredible granola recipe for the fall before your overwhelmed with pumpkin spice recipes. You'll be so glad you did.
