Pumpkin granola with chocolate chunks


Author: Aušra

Date:

Usually I make granola in summer, when it’s hot outside and no one wants to eat porridge. But when last week I tried new recipe for granola bars and I had only crumbs, my kids ate it just like usual granola for breakfast. And then they asked to make more granola. So I make my favourite at this moment granola. Kids’ favourite granola will have to wait a little bit. They enjoy this granola too, just for them I had to add chocolate with more sugar.

Pumpkin granola with chocolate chunks

Time needed:
Yields: 10 servings
Calories: 239 kcal / serving

Ingredients:
1 cup = 237 ml

  • 4 cups oat flakes
  • 2 tsps. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. dried ginger
  • pinch salt
  • 8 tbsps. pumpkin puree
  • 8 tbsps. honey or agave nectar (if honey is hard, first warm it)
  • 2 tbsps. coconut oil or oil of your choice (or just skip it)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract (I used vanilla sugar)
  • 100 g chocolate

Directions:

  • Turn oven on and set 150°C temperature.
  • In a bowl mix oats, cinnamon, ginger and salt.
  • In another smaller bowl mix pumpkin puree, honey, coconut oil and vanilla extract.
  • Pour wet ingredients to the dry ingredients bowl and mix. No dry oats should be left.
  • Pour mixture in a baking tray, lined with baking paper. Put baking tray into the oven.
  • Bake about 30-40 minutes mixing every 10 minutes. Baking time depends on your oven, so bake till oats will be mild brown colour.
  • Let cool granola and only then mix chopped chocolate.
  • Enjoy!

Sesame candy

I put a star on this recipe long time ago in Google Reader, but only Tasty weeks encouraged me to try to make my first candy 🙂 They were delicious – disappeared in a few minutes (maybe because I make only a quarter the recipe). Nice! 🙂 Tomorrow I have to look for another candy recipe. And meanwhile I can say that these candies are like kozinaki with a mild flavour of honey. And they are not very hard (in a fridge they became crunchy).

Quick oat cookies

Autorius: Aušra Data: 2009-06-15 Again I make oat cookies 🙂 Also tasty, with a little bit of orange flavor. They”re not very crumbly, just the real biscuits as I imagine 🙂 Again made without raisins, …

Chocolate cake with apples

This recipe waited for a year because last year somehow I was late – apples were gone, and I didn’t want to buy them. So this year this is my first (and the only) apple cake. And it was a really good cake! I baked only half of the recipe, but I got only one slice – my kids ate almost half of it at once. I could treat my parents only with the small slices… The cake is very moist and in reality it looks better than in the book. And I won’t judge my photos 🙂

Mini pie with pumpkin and prunes

These mini pies are very good way to use pumpkin or pumpkin puree. I and my hubby like them very much, but the kids do not. My mother asked to bake them because she wanted to take them to her work and that is the best proof to me that they taste great 🙂

Puffed rice with sunflower seeds and honey

It’s a very quick dessert or snack. It’s my style 🙂 And the ingredients are only a few. But it’s a pity that in Lithuania we can’t find puffed rice, only in Poland…
