Quinoa Granola




Protein-pack your granola by using quinoa instead of oats!



  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together quinoa flakes, quinoa, sliced almonds, coconut, cinnamon, and sea salt.
  3. Add melted coconut oil, honey, and vanilla. Stir until all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  4. Spread onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave some packed together to create clusters.
  5. Bake for 1 hour, gently stir the granola, and then bake another 20-30 minutes depending on how crunchy you like the granola. It will get a little crunchier as it cools, too.
  6. Once the granola is cool, stir in any add-ins if you want, and store in an airtight container for 2-3 weeks.
