This granola is delicious, full of good fats and protein and is super healthy. You can mix it with some fruit or yogurt for breakfast, use it as a topping for your smoothie bowl or ice cream or just snack on it when you feel like something sweet.
1/2 cup quinoa (uncooked)
3/4 cup oats
1 cup walnuts crushed up
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup maple syrup (or honey)
Preheat the oven to 170°C.
Mix all ingredients aside from the coconut oil, vanilla and maple syrup in a bowl until well combined.
Melt the coconut oil with the maple syrup and vanilla in a saucepan and whisk until well combined.
Make sure you turn off the heat as soon as the oil melts otherwise the maple syrup will burn.
Pour the coconut oil mixture onto the granola mixture and stir it through until he coconut oil has coated the whole mixture.
Take a lined baking tray and spread the mixture onto the tray so it’s spread out thinly and evenly.
Pop it in the oven for 10-15 minutes, making sure to keep an eye on it as it can burn quite quickly.
Once the granola is nice and golden remove it from the oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes.
Once it’s cooled it is ready to eat right away or you can store it in a glass jar for up to 2 weeks.
