I was long overdue to make my wife some homemade granola. I wasn’t in the mood to make my Cranberry Granola or my Pumpkin Chocolate Granola so decided to make this Pumpkin Flaxseed Granola.

Just like most homemade granola recipes, this one calls for simple ingredients that you most likely already have in your pantry. Except possibly the ground flaxseed.

If you don’t have ground flaxseed on hand you can substitute for about 1/4 cup of whole flaxseed. You can also substitute the slivered almonds in this recipe for some chopped walnuts or pecans.
