Though Vitamin D is necessary for health, overexposure can lead to sunburn and premature skin aging. Take care of your skin by using organic and mineral sunscreens or covering up. You only need about 10 minutes of midday sun to get your daily dose of the vitamin so use that umbrella for the rest of your time outdoors!

Time to break out the flip flops and shorts! Created with our favorite ingredients to exfoliate dry skin, this clean concoction will leave you with soft, glowing skin that smells divine!  Shop our Fir honey 325g here.

Seasonal Satisfaction – Pumpkin Spice Granola with Manuka Honey

granola recipe

Ever a fan of the ubiquitous fall pumpkin spice latte, this year I’ve begun exploring other non-caffeinated ways to appease my seasonal pumpkin cravings. So, when our resident kitchen maverick, Haley, concocted this Pumpkin Spice Granola using our newest Limited Edition KFactor 22 Manuka Honey, I was thrilled. Not only is this granola delicious and healthy, it’s also an incredibly convenient snack perfect for keeping your energy up while you enjoy the last of these beautiful autumn days! Eat up!

Ingredients:

-2 cups old-fashioned oats (use certified gluten-free oats if making this GF)

-1 cup raw pecan halves

-1 cup raw pumpkin seeds

-1/4 cup Wedderspoon Raw Manuka Honey KFactor 22

-1/4 cup melted coconut oil

-1/4 cup pumpkin puree

-1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

-1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)

-1/2 cup shredded or shaved coconut

Directions:

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray, or line it with parchment paper. Set aside.

Combine the oats, pumpkin seeds and pecans in a large mixing bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the Manuka honey, melted coconut oil, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, and salt together until smooth.

Pour the Manuka Honey syrup mixture over the oats mixture, and toss until everything is evenly mixed.

Spread the granola mixture out evenly on a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and add in the coconut (if using) and give everything a good stir.

Return the granola to the oven and cook for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the mixture is golden. Remove and let the granola cool until it reaches room temperature.
