Sour Cherry & Blackberry Breakfast Scones

My basic breakfast scone recipe has been my go-to for a quick weekend breakfast treat. It uses oats, whole-grain flour, and coconut oil instead of butter – so you can really justify it as a healthier alternative to the traditional (and delicious) cheddar and chive. You can also substitute out the milk for oil and water, making this a scrumptious and easy vegan treat!  Advertisements

Pumpkin Seed Chocolate Clusters

So I’m 23 and I’ve never roasted pumpkin seeds before. Better late than never right? Instead of roasting any old seeds from a pumpkin at your grocery store, we went all out and picked our own pumpkin. We spent the day at a family farm and spent an hour wandering the pumpkin patches searching for the best looking pumpkins.  We spent three hours carving the monsters, but at the end were left with a massive bowl of slimey pumpkin seeds. Once washed and roasted with a tad of salt these quickly became my favourite afternoon snack. Such a satisfying crunch and saltiness. Having so many seeds I sought to find a way to use them… That naturally included dark chocolate. My weakness! If you like Turtles than these will be your jam.

Maple Walnut Granola

Myth #1: Granola is too difficult to make at home, so I try to pick out the best at the grocery store. Granola is as easy as you want to make it! It’s versatile enough that you can gather ingredients you already  have in your pantry. (ie. oats, seeds, dried fruit, coconut etc.). Then, add in a little sweetener (honey, maple syrup, blended medjool dates, brown sugar etc.) and watch it crisp up in the oven for an hour. We’re not harvesting our own oats here!
