Nutty vanilla-cinnamon granola

Don’t have all the nuts or seeds I mention in the ingredients? Substitute away! But I do highly recommend using lots of seeds and nuts. Do a quick Google search to check out the nutritional facts of your ingredients — you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see that pepitas have lots of iron and how flaxseed is a good source of omega 3. Not a bad way to start the morning!

I've never made pumpkin seeds with butter before (usually with just oil), but the butter made these ones nice and crispy.

  • 3 cups seeds (from 2  large carving pumpkins), rinsed and patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

Spread out the seeds so they don't overlap!

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Place the  pumpkin seeds in a medium bowl, and pour the butter over, using a spatula to toss the seeds. Sprinkle the garlic salt and pepper over, and toss seeds again.

On two rimmed baking sheets, spread out the seeds in a single layer.

Bake 35-45 minutes, or until the seeds turn golden brown.

Makes 3 cups.

Happy Halloween!
