I have some delicious Pumpkin Spice Granola for you today because yep, I’m still not over pumpkin spice.
I also have a bunch of PAM Cooking Spray hacks because it literally my most used ingredient in the kitchen. I use it for everything from spraying a bowl for rising dough to prepping a baking sheet for chocolate chip cookies.
To illustrate how often I use it, I kept a tally one day of how many times I reached for it.
I make my husband eggs (6 of them!) every morning for breakfast and each time I start out by spraying my skillet with PAM Cooking Spray. It keeps the eggs from sticking and makes cleanup so easy! PAM leaves 99% less residue than margarine or bargain-brand cooking sprays too.
I also make him turkey bacon (6 slices!) to go with the eggs and I also spray that pan because turkey bacon has, like, no fat on it and tends to stick if you don’t spray it first.
For lunch that day, I baked up some acorn squash and mixed it with turkey sausage, maple syrup, and sriracha. Weird, I know. But I used the PAM Cooking Spray to spray both the baking sheet for the squash and the skillet that I used to brown the turkey sausage. Again, it made my cleanup so easy!
For dinner that night, I roasted off some veggies. But not before spraying my baking sheet with PAM Cooking Spray. There may or may not have been mini corndogs involved too but I decided it was a good idea to not photo document that.
I literally use PAM Cooking Spray for every meal and when I happen to run out before grocery day, it is the worst. I hate scrubbing dishes (especially egg skillets!) so I’ve really come to rely on PAM Cooking Spray to make my life a little easier.
My favorite PAM Cooking Spray hack, though, involves honey. I use a lot of honey when I bake things for my husband and really, is there anything worse than waiting for 1/4 cup of honey to slooooooowly drizzle out of a measuring cup?
So if you spray your measuring cup or spoon with PAM Cooking Spray before filling it up with honey, it slides right out. And! This trick also works for peanut butter!
I used my trick to make this Pumpkin Spice Granola. And yeah, I also sprayed the baking pan because who wants to scrub stuck-on oats? Not me.
This granola is so yummy! Perfect for all pumpkin spice lovers! I pair it with coconut yogurt and it was the perfect combo. It’d also be great with milk poured over top or just by itself!
- Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with PAM Cooking Spray.
- Put oats in a large mixing bowl.
- In a separate bowl, combine coconut oil, pumpkin puree, honey, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Pour over the oats and stir to coat all the oats.
- Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Stir in pecans and bake for another 15 minutes.
Cool completely before serving.For recipes and cooking tips, follow PAM Cooking Spray on Facebook and Pinterest, or visit pamcookingspray.com.
