Pumpkin Spice Granola: the weight loss snack

eat healthy with Training aspects personal training

‘Tis the season for pumpkin spice EVERYTHING! Last week I promised a pumpkin spice recipe, and I like to make good on my promises, so here it is…Pumpkin Spice Granola.  The vast majority of store bought granola has tons of unnecessary sugar added to it, making what should be a healthy treat a nutritional nightmare.  This recipe cuts back on that sugar but is still satisfying and delicious.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats (not quick-cooking oats)
  • 2 cups chopped nuts (pecans, almonds, walnuts. Or whatever you have on hand)
  • 1 cup chopped dried fruit of your choice
  • 1/2 cup seeds (pumpkin, chia, flax, or a combination of all 3)
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 1/8 cup honey
  • Spice: 1 Tablespoon Cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Method

Preheat oven to 325 F. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin with spices, and salt.  Next, stir in nuts, fruit, seeds, and oats. Drizzle and toss with Coconut oil and honey until evenly coated.

Spread on baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every fifteen minutes, or until golden brown.
