Oil-Free Autumn Granola - Good Idea!

Oil-Free Autumn GranolaHow smart is this? Diana, blogger at The Chic Life, dreamed up another way for us to eat pumpkin (which we can't seem to get enough this time of year) that's smart and super healthy, to boot. Bake up a pan of your favorite granola, but replace the oil used to coat the oats and nuts with canned pumpkin puree. Clever, right? We love that this method nips some of granola's usual calories in the bud while still striking a perfectly seasonal note. If you're not into the all-pumpkin-all-the-time moment happening right now, you could also use applesauce instead.
