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!

Oatmeal coconut cookies

Magic cookies – they always disappear the first day you bake them. I know that Forelle has cookies alike, just even better – with nuts. But now I”m ok without nuts 🙂

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.

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.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Sweet cookies with the mild taste of peanuts. And a little bit healthy because with oats 🙂 In original recipe used sugar for me was too much, so I used only white sugar and still for me cookies were too sweet. But my children ate have of cookies at once and hubby said that sweetness of cookies it just right.

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…
