Homemade granola makes a healthy and delicious snack or breakfast! Most store bought granola is high in sugar and contains unhealthy added ingredients. By creating your own you are able to control the amount of sugar and quality of ingredients, while still being able to add in the flavours you love. You will get added nutrients and extra protein by adding in nuts, seeds and quinoa flakes and still maintain great taste. The perfect way to enjoy this granola is by pairing it with a rich, full fat yogurt!
3 cups quinoa flakes
½ cup almonds, chopped in half
1⁄3 cup sunflower seeds
1⁄3 cup pumpkin seeds
¼ cup flaxseeds
¼ cup hemp seeds
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup dried cranberries
½ cup shredded coconut
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup coconut sugar
½ cup maple syrup
1⁄3 cup coconut oil butter ghee
Combine coconut sugar, coconut oil butter ghee and maple syrup until mixture is blended over medium heat. Combine all the remaining ingredients and pour the maple syrup blend over. Coat well. Lay mixture out on 2 parchment-lined cookie sheets. Bake at 325˚F for 20 minutes. Stir gently and cook for 20 more minutes, stirring twice.
