Gorp Sundae

Cardamom, the exotic spice that gives Chai tea its unique flavor, is a fun addition to this snack mix. If you can’t find it, substitute cinnamon or nutmeg. Be sure to store the granola-style gorp in an airtight container to keep it crisp.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 12 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 12 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons plus 4 teaspoons honey, divided
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 18 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups vanilla Greek yogurt


  1. Preheat oven to 325˚.
  2. Combine oats, pumpkin seeds and walnuts in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Combine remaining ingredients in a small microwave safe glass bowl, whisking to blend. Heat on HIGH for 20-30 seconds or until honey melts; pour mixture over dry ingredients and toss until well blended. Pour mixture onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes at 325˚ or until mixture begins to brown lightly, stirring a few times to keep it browning evenly. Cool until ready to use (yield: 2 cups).
  4. To assemble sundaes, scoop 1/2 cup yogurt into each of four sundae cups. Drizzle each with 1 teaspoon honey and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons gorp.
