The Pumpkin Assault Begins

I have become obsessed with pumpkin(s).

Okay, so really I’m obsessed with pumpkin all the time, I just let loose my craziness in all its splendor come fall.

This year it’s no different. It began with a slice of Starbucks’ famed pumpkin loaf, transitioned into pumpkin muffins for a camp out, and most lately has emerged in the form of pumpkin pancakes. (This morning, topped with maple syrup. Mmm…)

And now I’m munching on a big batch of homemade pumpkin granola – with big, crispy orange chunks of spiced goodness, mixed with craisins, almonds, pepitas, chopped dates and wheat germ. It’s amazing with [pumpkin] yogurt or on top of [pumpkin] pancakes, a la this a.m.

But I would say it’s best enjoyed with a bowl of ice cold vanilla soymilk. It enhances the crunch.

Read my article for the recipe – it’s so easy, and this is good for you and equally delicious.

(And expect more pumpkin obsession around here. Nothing can stop the madness!)
