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!

Chocolate chip cookies with nuts and apricots

The first time I baked these cookies with my daugther. They were very delicious and very sweet. So next time I used less sugar, but they spread less while baking. Here I give you proportions with less sugar because I like when cookies are cookies and not candies 🙂 By the way, when I used hazelnuts my hubby said to leave them at home (didn’t let to take them to my work) 🙂 So it says everything about the taste of these cookies.

Soda bread

Somehow I forget to set my breadmaker to bake the bread or remember only very late in the evening. If there was no bread the next day my hubby would be starving 🙂 So I had to do something. And have to say that hubby very liked the bread with cheese.

Chocolate-Coconut Granola

A few weeks ago I started to think that it would be good to make chocolate granola. And one day it was time for that. Although it’s more cocoa granola than chocolate, but anyway, it was good combination with coconuts.

Edible playdough

My kids like to play with homemade playdough. Every weekend they play in the kitchen while I’m preparing something tasty. But one time when I saw my kids sitting and smiling with green mouths, I understood that something was wrong 🙂 So I made decision – prepare edible playdough. The recipes was selected long time ago, but time to prepare it came only now. It’s very easy to make and tasty to eat – if you like peanuts and sweetness. But don’t do my mistake, don’t prepare full amount, devide in half or even more. We ate a lot, but it still is on my pantry. Now it hardened, but we break some chunks and eat like candies. After a great play you can make small balls and dip in the melted chocolate – and you will have great candies.

Zucchini Cookies with Chocolate Chips and Dried Cranberries

A little bit not ordinary cookies. You can’t taste zucchini, just it’s green skin says that cookies has a secret in side. Next time I will use quick cooking oats, because now I used old fashioned and eating cookies I could feel hard oats.
