Meatless Monday – Merci me

For shame. First of all, I completely forgot World Vegetarian Day last week (October 1). And secondly, this:

McDonald’s is trialling a vegan burger… the McVegan

Seems McDonald’s is riding the meatless wagon. Never mind them. It’s Canadian Thanksgiving today and this year I made pumpkin pie granola bites. Here’s the blueprint recipe:

Wet ingredients: ¼ cup each of pumpkin purée, maple syrup and oil; ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

Dry ingredients: 1 cup rolled oats; ½ tablespoon protein powder; ¼ teaspoon each of salt and tapioca starch; 2 tablespoons each of pumpkin seeds, chopped pecans and dried  cranberries; 1 tablespoon of flax seeds; ¼ teaspoon of cinnamon; 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger; a dash each of clove and nutmeg

Simply mix wet and dry ingredients thoroughly. Press into individual muffin cups or baking pan. Bake in a preheated oven (250ºF) for 45 minuets. Let cool, then devour.

  1. Sounds very delicious. I have some frozen pumpkin puree, a sack of rolled oats, cornstarch (will that do instead of tapioca?_and I don’t have flax seeds but I can probably omit them? I shall be throwing some in the oven, very soon. Thanks for the recipe!
