Quinoa Granola

Quinoa granola.  I’m not sure why I have never tried this before.  It’s crunchy, chock full of healthy fats, complex carbs and a bit of protein.  It’s really easy to make, and super tasty. 

Serve it with 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt or Kefir (at least 2% fat) and 1 cup fruit for a complete meal.

  1. 1 cup quinoa (uncooked)
  2. 1/2 cup each: chopped cashews, almonds, pumpkin seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes
  3. 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  4. 1/2 tsp. salt
  5. 1/4 cup coconut oil
  6. 1/4 cup honey
  7. 1/2 cup dried fruit
  1. Heat oven to 350F. Mix quinoa, nuts, other ‘add-ins’, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Heat coconut oil and honey together until it’s more ‘liquidy’. Pour into the bowl and mix well. Spread over a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for about 25-30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes. Granola should be a golden brown when it’s done. Stir in dried fruit when it's done. Let it cool and store in an airtight container.
  1. Be creative with the 'add ins'. Other ideas: hemp hearts, sunflower seeds...
