Raw Butternut Granola

I am loving the fall and all the new flavors that comes with it. Sticking with my butternut and pumping spice theme I made a raw granola. I love how soothing and comforting this granola is, I would suggest eating it with warm milk to really bring out all the flavors. Although it tastes great with a quick splash of cold milk as well 🙂

The sweetness level is very low here, so I would suggest adding more syrup if you prefer to have a sweeter breakfast. I like it this way since I often feel like adding sliced bananas to my granola and that creates the perfect amount of sweet for me.

  • 1 TBS fresh ginger
  • 1 cup butternut squash
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
