Carving pumpkins this weekend? Don’t waste the seeds! They’re a brilliant little extra to mix up your breakfast granola with a little autumnal twist.
Once you’ve dug all the seeds out of the pumpkin, remove the flesh, wash them and leave them to go dry on a plate – this may take a couple of days.
This recipe is super simple and will take you literally 5 minutes.
You will need:
- Live Yogurt
- Rolled Oats
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Dried Fruit
- Mixed Nuts
- In a bowl, layer the bottom with live yogurt, a product renowned for its probiotics and good bacteria for your gut. Even a spoonful a day can be beneficial.
2. On top, sprinkle a small handful of rolled oats, followed by a handful of pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are apparently ‘nutritional powerhouses’ full of nutrients such as magnesium and zinc.
3. I used a mixed bag of dried fruit and nuts, including crunchy walnuts. These add flavour and extra crunch to your granola.
4. Finish by topping the bowl with runny honey, grab a spoon, and enjoy!
