Makes about 4 cups


Nupboards like to eat Nuggets—a clumpy, bumpy cross between nut brittle and trail mix, made out of items you can find in your cupboards.


  • 2-1/2 cups uncooked oatmeal (not quick-cooking)
  • 1 cup green pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup whole almonds
  • 1/2 cup light cooking oil, such as canola or sunflower
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract


1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, combine the oatmeal, pumpkin seeds, almonds, oil, honey, brown sugar, cinnamon, and almond extract and mix well, using your hands if necessary.

3. Spread the mixture on a large baking sheet and bake until browned, stirring from time to time to prevent burning, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

4. Remove from the oven. Using a fork or spatula, push the mixture together. Let cool completely, then break up into clumps. (There will be some unclumped bits that you can use for granola or trail snacks.) May be stored in an airtight container for up to three weeks.
