About this Recipe
Pumpkin puree is a great ingredient to use during the autumn/fall season. It can be bought in stores or you can make it from scratch Click here for my homemade healthy pumpkin puree recipe.
I love adding pumpkin puree my recipes and this snack has to be one of my favorites.
The pumpkin puree was made the night before so this snack was very quick to make. I added granola to the base of this snack, then pumpkin puree (mixed with honey/maple syrup to taste), Greek yogurt, another layer of pumpkin puree, more granola, pumpkin seeds and dusted cinnamon powder on top.
I always save my pumpkin seeds because they are very nutritious. They are high in fiber, antioxidants and magnesium. I also add pumpkin seeds to my oats, toast and more.
