Pumpkin cinnamon granola

Sometimes it's okay to bake with pumpkin when it isn't autumn.
Sometimes it's okay to listen to One Direction while doing said baking.
Sometimes it's okay to have four helpings of the crunchy delicious stuff. 

Today was one of those sometimes.

Pumpkin Cinnamon Granola:

3 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 Tb. oat bran
1/2 Tb. cinnamon 
2 Tb. olive oil
1/2 cup pure maple syrup 

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and spread on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven at 325* F for 30-35 minutes or until desired crunchiness.
  I recommend serving over honey Greek yogurt with sliced kiwi. Delicious AND healthy!

Much love, Vivi
