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.

Sodos duona

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.

Oatmeal with banana and nuts

This morning was cloudy so it was a good time to cook this oatmeal. My kids don”t like simple oatmeal (or I just think that I still didn”t learn to cook it tasty), so I decided to make a little bit sweet but still healty version. Banana gives mild sweetness and nuts adds some crunchy texture. In the original recipe walnuts are used, but we don”t like them so I changed them to hazelnuts. At the end my little one asked next time not to add nuts at all. So decide by yourself to use or not to use nuts in your oatmeal.

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.

Kama flour cookies with chocolate

This time I used whole spelt flour, just because whole wheat four I couldn’t get in our store. And measured everything in grams because it’s more convenient for me. I was surprised that I had to use more flour that it was noted in original recipe. Maybe it’s because of spelt flour. So I suggest to add spelt or wheat flour gradually and to see if more is needed.

Puffed rice with Mars bars

Puffed rice with Mars bars

I use less and less ingredients to do something sweet 🙂 Now I used only three ingredients. Next time I’ll try to use breakfast crisp balls. Mars bars is very good when you don’t want to waste time unfolding butter scotches. And it gives the taste between butterscotch and chocolate. But we likes this sweet a lot – disappeared in minutes.
