Take one can of pumpkin and make...
- 7 cups old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup flax seeds or wheat germ
- 1 cup nuts (I use walnuts or pecans.)
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 2 T. cinnamon
- 1 t. salt
- 1 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 3/4 cup canned pumpkin (not pie mix!)
- 1/4 cup cinnamon apple sauce
- 1 generous T. vanilla
- 1 1/2 cup craisins
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix liquid ingredients and pour over dry. (I usually measure and mix the liquid ingredients in a 2-cup measuring cup.) Stir until well coated.
Place granola mixture into two lightly sprayed 9×13 baking dishes. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes; stir and add craisins. Bake another 20-25 minutes or until evenly browned. Cool and store in an airtight container.
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
Use the the other half of the can to make ...
Quick Pumpkin Pancakes
2 cups Aunt Jemima Original Pancake Mix (May contain traces of milk so use
1 1/2 cups Almond milk
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 t pumpkin pie spice
Mix all ingredients and cook on griddle until golden and cooked in the center.
Optional add ins: 1/4 c milled flax seed and/or 1 cup DF chocolate chips.
Hopefully, I will have enough left to not HAVE to cook again until I'm feeling 100% again.... or at least not so germy. :o)
