Pumpkin & White Chocolate Granola Bars

October 25, 2013

Homemade Pumpkin and White Chocolate Granola Bars

This recipe is loosely based on my Pumpkin Spice Granola Recipe. This recipe, however, includes pumpkin puree, bumping the delicious pumpkin flavor up a notch. It also includes white chocolate chips, giving it a little more of a dessert feel. You can certainly swap any of the dry items for other items {i.e. if you don't want chocolate chips, substitute with dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, etc.} and the oil with any liquid oil as well as the sugars with equal amounts dry and liquid sugars.

Pumpkin and White Chocolate Granola Bars
Makes 1 - 13"x9" pan of bars

1/2 Cup Canola Oil
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Pumpkin Puree
1/2 Cup Honey
4 Cups Instant/Quick Rolled Oats
1/2 Cup Pepitas
1/2 Cup unsweetened {or sweetened if you prefer}, shredded coconut
3/4 Cups chopped walnuts
1/4 Cup Flax Seeds, optional
1 1/2 Cups White Chocolate Chips {semi-sweet chocolate chips or carob chips would work well}
2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1/4 teaspoon Allspice

Heat the oven to 325 degrees and place parchment in a 9x13" baking dish.

In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix together the oil, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, and honey until warmed. Stir to combine.

In a large bowl, mix together the oats, pepitas, coconut, flax seeds, chocolate chips and spices. Stir in the warm oil mixture and stir until all ingredients are coated. Press the mixture into the parchment lined baking dish and bake for 30 min.

Remove from the oven and using a heavy spatula or the bottom of a measuring cup, press down on the granola bars. Bake for an additional 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before cutting.

Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

Real Food Meal Plan - Week of January 21, 2018

January 22, 2018

If you’re just tuning in, this is an ongoing series in which I share our weekly meal plan as I (attempt) to convert us to a Whole/Real Foods lifestyle. I actually meal plan monthly but share it here weekly because it makes more sense to do so. Meal planning is my way of controlling the grocery budget (read as a LOT of dollars saved), ensuring there is no food waste for the week, as well as saving...

January 18, 2018

Simple Living

As a follow-up to “What Is Simple Living”, these are steps (goals) that I’ve been using and will continue to use this year on my own path to a simple, homemade life.  I shared that I come from a family of collectors and that was my first challenge – purging the collections.  It was emotional and difficult at times but I can honestly tell you that I am thrilled that I did it.

So the collections are...

The BEST Deviled Eggs

January 17, 2018

When we first purchased chickens we hadn't thought through the fact that we were 2 people with a dozen laying hens. That meant 12 eggs about every 26 hours. We certainly had no trouble finding people we could gift our beautiful eggs to, but we also wanted to come up with delicious ways to use some of the excess ourselves. I've always loved deviled eggs but when I came across this recipe and...
