Pumpkin Spice Granola

Pumpkin Spice Granola

What’s super easy to make, healthy and also makes a really tasty snack? GRANOLA!

I really can’t understand why I ever spent money on granola in the past. I guess just always assumed I couldn’t make it at home. Well, you already know what happens when you assume. That’s right. I’m a total ass for never making this before. There’s a whole heck of a lot less sugar in my version then there is in the store bought stuff. Plus, you know all the ingredients that are going into it and it’s totally customizable. Oh AND it’s WAY cheaper! My grocery store charges almost $7 per pound for the pre-made stuff. My version probably costs around $2! It really doesn’t get much better than that.

Pumpkin Spice Granola

• 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (not quick cooking)
• 1/2 cups nuts or seeds
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1/3 cup honey
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 3 tablespoons pumpkin spice
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 cup dried fruit or chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine the oats and nuts or seeds. Add in all ingredients except dried fruit or chocolate chips. Spread out on a rimmed baking sheet covered in aluminum foil. Bake for 30 minutes, stirring every 15 to make sure all pieces bake evenly. Remove from oven and allow to completely cool before adding dried fruit or chocolate chips.

Spicy Sweet Potato and Ham Hash

Spicy Sweet Potato and Ham Hash

This dish is a bright and colorful take on the traditional breakfast staple. Plus, sweet potatoes are loaded with beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin E and potassium. Bonus! Tastes great and healthy! I wish I could say that about everything.

Here I used some frozen leftover honey baked ham that I defrosted the night before. I also used frozen poblano peppers from my farm share from over the summer. Sigh. I really miss our weekly bag of fresh veggies. I also miss those long summer days. This whole dark-when-I-go-into-work-dark-when-I-get-home thing is really cramping my style. First world problems. I know, I know. That’s what lack of sunshine will do to you!

Spicy Sweet Potato and Ham Hash

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups diced ham
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 poblano pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, add all ingredients and mix until well combined. Spread mixture onto a large rimmed cookie sheet and bake in oven for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. Top with an over easy egg or, since I was out of eggs, a sprinkle of feta cheese.

Make-Your-Own Pizzettas

This weeknight meal is a great way to please a few different palates. Just pick up a few toppings and the naan flatbread bases, and keep in the fridge for when the pizza mood strikes. Here are two delicious options to get you started!

Smoked Salmon Pizzetta

  • 1 Garlic naan flatbread
  • 2 ounces smoked salmon
  • pecorino-romano cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon dried or fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon dried or fresh chives
  • thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon capers

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees with your pizza stone inside. In a bowl, mix together the yogurt, mayo, dill and chives. Once the oven is preheated, remove the pizza stone and place your naan flatbread in the center. Spread the yogurt mixture over the entire base; top with the salmon, capers, and red onion and shredded cheese. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the cheese on top begins to brown and the crust looks a little crispy. Enjoy with a nice glass of crisp white wine for best results!! And for the meat eater in the bunch:

Hot Olives, Turkey and Bleu Pizzetta

  • 1 Garlic naan flatbread
  • olive oil
  • 2 slices deli-sliced turkey breast
  • pitted hot olive mix
  • sundried tomatoes, sliced
  • crumbly bleu cheese
  • pecorino-romano cheese, shredded

Same deal—preheat the oven to 425 degrees with your pizza stone inside. Once the oven is preheated, remove the pizza stone and place your naan flatbread in the center. Drizzle with olive oil, then top with the sliced or torn up turkey breast, halved olives mix, sundried tomatoes, bleu cheese crumbles and a little shredded cheese for good measure. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the cheese and turkey begins to brown and the crust looks a little crispy. Enjoy! –Jordan
