These days everybody’s all runnin’ around gettin’ their PSLs from Starbucks.  So I had this idea to make PSY (Pumpkin Spice Yogurt).  Healthy and yum.

I made a lot because I took it to the elementary school for a teachers’ brunch.  You can adjust the recipe to make fewer servings or just store leftovers in the fridge. Don’t add the granola until the last minute, though, or it might get soggy.

Pumpkin Spice Yogurt


32 oz container plain fat free Greek yogurt
1 15 oz can pumpkin
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
2  teaspoons vanilla
1/4-1/2 cup brown sugar (more or less depending on how sweet you like it, and I’d use Splenda brown sugar if I were making it for myself to cut calories)


Whisk all the ingredients together and serve with granola on top.

Maple Spice Granola


4 cups oats (not quick cooking)
2 T brown sugar
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup maple syrup (not pancake syrup)
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup craisins


Combine oats, nuts, brown sugar, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Mix canola oil and maple syrup with vanilla in a large measuring cup and pour over dry ingredients.  Mix well and spread on a cookie sheet.  Bake at 300 degrees for 20-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes or so until brown.  Let cool and then add craisins.
