Pumpkin Pecan Easy Granola Recipe – No Refined Sugars!

Pumpkin Pecan Easy Granola Recipe – No Refined Sugars!

I worry a lot about what to pack in Evan’s school lunch box but that is not the only meal I run out of ideas for. Breakfast is an issue too! Options are easier in some ways but so many of Evan’s favourites have a ton of sugar. I love this yummy pumpkin pecan easy granola recipe that we can stir into yogurt for breakfast.

A little crunchy and sweet treat stirred into protein-packed Greek yogurt is a great way to start the day and it will keep him full until lunch. Not a fan of yogurt? Just pour over some milk like regular cereal. Easy peasy!

They are my favourite too! If there are nuts in a recipe on my site, it is usually pecans.
