Amy's Vegetarian Pemmican


Courtesy of Amy Crowell

I couldn't bring myself to blend raw meat and lard, but I loved the idea of creating my own modern version of pemmican. I decided to create a wild, vegetarian version of the traditional food, and the result was more akin to a granola bar, delicious and very kid-friendly.

Super easy

Amy's Vegetarian Pemmican


For 8 Person(s)


  • 1/2 cups pecan meal (ground pecans)
  • 1/8 cups mesquite meal
  • 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cups dried fruit (use almost any fruit—good wild fruits include mulberries, blackberries, agaritas and dried mountain grapes)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Amy's Vegetarian Pemmican Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°.
  2. Mix the pecan meal, mesquite meal, oats and fruit together in a bowl.
  3. Blend the egg, butter and honey in another bowl and slowly pour over the dry mixture, stirring well to completely coat the dry ingredients.
  4. Press the mixture into muffin tins—filling each cup about half-full. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Let cool and store in airtight containers.
