Super-easy Homemade Granola Recipe

The other day when I was at the store I was searching for some granola. I wanted something without old dry raisins, without freeze-dried fruit, without artificial-taste and too much sweetener.

The flavor, the consistency ... the price.

I've noted that Libby's is the main brand available with the store brand sections of the shelves empty -- and our local discount stores don't have any canned pumpkin at all. Since I was making a pumpkin pie for our holiday get-together and had half a can of pumpkin left (I bought the big 29 oz. can), I decided to make pumpkin muffins too.
