Canyon Ranch Pumpkin Crunch

From Canyon Ranch Health Spa comes this very fast Pumpkin Crunch recipe.   Use it as a breakfast cereal, or eat out of hand or top your yogurt with it. We like to keep a baggie in the car on long road trips — it’s an excellent trail mix.   Pumpkin seeds are a rich source of healthy mono- and poly-unsaturated oils besides being a good source of fiber, iron, magnesium, and phosphorus.  Maple Syrup is a natural sweetener which turns a wonderful bronze color.  Use it to taste.  The cranberries add a tart flavor.  If you prefer something sweeter, tried dried cherries, blueberries, apricots, or even raisins.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups dried cranberries
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 300F.
  2. Lightly spray a baking sheet with canola oil spray.
  3. Toss seeds with oil in a small bowl. Spread the coated seeds on the baking sheet. Roast for 20 minutes, or until almost dry.
  4. Place seeds in a medium bowl and mix in maple syrup until coated.
  5. Combine spices in a small bowl and add mixture to the seeds. Stir to combine.
  6. Return seeds to the baking sheet and roast for 15 minutes, or until dry, stirring occasionally. Turn the pan several times to ensure even roasting, checking frequently—seeds burn easily.
  7. Set seeds aside until completely cool, about 30 minutes.
  8. Combine seeds and dried cranberries in a large bowl. Store in a tightly sealed container.

    This is another good granola recipe. I use dried cherries for a less tart fruit. Use it daily on my yogurt.
