By Amity Warme

Savory Pumpkin Granola

Yield: About 6 cups

Ingredients: 

  • 4 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup millet
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree 
  • ¼ cup olive oil (or melted coconut oil)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 scoops Enduro Bites Vanilla Recovery Protein Powder
  • ¼ - ½ cup honey, depending on desired sweetness 
  • Add ins of choice:
    • Dried fruit: cranberries, cherries, currants, apricots, etc.
    • Nuts and seeds: pumpkin seeds, pecans, walnuts, etc.

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 325 and line two baking sheets with parchment paper
  • Mix dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well combined
  • Add wet ingredients and desired add-ins then stir thoroughly
  • Spoon granola evenly onto the baking sheets, using your hands to form small clusters
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then stir granola on the pan and bake for another 10 minutes
  • Do not over-bake as the granola will continue to crisp after it is removed from the oven
  • Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container

Tips and Tricks for Granola Success!

  • Bake at a low temperature to avoid burning parts of the mixture like nuts, seeds, and coconut before the batch has a chance to dry out and crisp up
  • Gently stir the mixture part way through baking to help it brown evenly
  • Don’t make your clusters too large or they will not crisp all the way through
  • Add nuts and seeds before baking but wait to add dried fruits until after baking
  • Use whole oats rather than quick cooking oats for better texture
  • Try alternative grains – oats are a great base but feel free to add other flaked whole grains such as rye, spelt, or quinoa
