Pumpkin Spice Granola

This recipe is a winner! The thing I love best about this recipe is the fact that since pumpkin puree is used, there is no need for oil! This recipe is from Baking Bites and is one the whole family enjoys.

Pumpkin Spice Granola
2 c. puffed brown rice cereal (or rice krispies)
4 c. oats
2 t. pumpkin pie spice
pinch of cardamom
3/4 t. salt
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. pumpkin puree
1/4 c. pure maple syrup
1/4 c. applesauce
1 t. vanilla
3/4 c. chopped almonds
1 c. raisins

Combine all ingredients except almonds and raisins and combine well. Bake at 325 on cookie sheets for 25 minutes. Stir well. Sprinkle almonds and return to over for 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. After granola has cooled, add raisins and store in airtight container.
