Ingredients

3 cups rolled oats
1 cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup quinoa or millet
½ cup pecans, pieces or chopped

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 300 F.
In a large bowl stir together all ingredients until evenly combined.
Place mixture on a large baking sheet and bake for 30 – 45 minutes until crisped and browned to your liking. Toss every 10 – 15 minutes. (my pans were small so it took almost an hour)
Let granola cool to room temperature, then store in an airtight container.

My kiddos could not stop eating this even though it wasn’t really sweet, having the seeds and nuts in it made it so so yummy! If you love these recipes follow me on Facebook to see more and connect with me!

Paleo Pumpkin Cake

IMG_9039.JPGSo as I was looking through my 21 Day Fix book I noticed under the Green Containers it listed “Winter Squash”! Do you know what that means? Pumpkin can be used as a green container!

So for breakfast I decided to have Pumpkin Cake because I could and it would use one of my green containers. 🙂 Start to finish this take less than 10 minutes.

Ingredients:

1 Green Container of Canned Pumpkin

1 Egg

2 tsp of pure maple syrup or stevia

1-2 tsp of Pumpkin Pie Spice

Directions:

Simply beat ingredients all together and place in a ramekin or mug sprayed with coconut oil spray and microwave for 5 minutes or until set. Be careful when you remove it because it will be hot!  Enjoy!!!
