Pumpkin Granola

This is the second time I have made a pumpkin granola, but the first one only contained pumpkin seeds. This recipe from the website Buried Carrots contains a can of pumpkin. I made a half recipe but added three cups of rolled oats instead of 2 1/4, cut the maple syrup to 1/4 cup and replaced the cranberries with dried sour cherries. It's the kind of recipe that just begs to be customized. I was really pleased with the results. It's crispy and not too sweet. Mine came out to 200 calories per 1/2 cup (darn those nuts), but nutritionally, they're pretty healthy calories.
