This Double Pumpkin Granola is packed with sweet fall flavors and is a simple way to spruce up yogurt, breakfast cereal, and oatmeal.
*So this was a learning point for me. Basically you can use either the whole pumpkin seeds or the pepitas (the little greenish innards). Here are your options:
1) If you have pumpkin seeds straight from a pumpkin and want to use the whole seed, boil them for 10 minutes then let them dry on a paper towel. This method is going to be a bit chewier and way higher in fiber.
2) If you have whole seeds and want to use only the pepitas, gently roll them with a rolling pin to crack the outer shells. Place them in boiling water for 30 minutes. Shells should float to the surface while the seeds should sink (you may also need to pinch out those remaining in their shells.
3) You can also just buy pepitas.
