Granola made with rolled oats, popped quinoa, coconut flakes, cashews, pepitas, raisins. Coconut oil, honey and some spices (cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg) round off the ingredients. Perfect for breakfast or snacking.

This does look great! Query tho re: popped quinoa -- I'm not familiar with this. Is this a variety to buy or something I do to the uncooked quinoa in my pantry. Again, thanks.

It's just regular quinoa that you cook dry until they start popping. Stir regularly so you don't burn them. Just the same method as roasting nuts or sesame seeds on a skillet.

Thanks so much. I've read several different methods for granola, including one in the crock pot, and didn't know which would be best. This sounds amazing and I can't wait to try. I may even try the crock pot version with this. Thanks again!

You're welcome. I've never made granola on a crockpot. Let me know how it turns out!

any chance you'd be generously willing to provide the proportions for this granola? it looks so beautiful and seems to be one of the rare ones that would work with my tree nut allergies!

I adapted this from a NYT recipe. Didn't use oat bran so I increased the amount of quinoa. And I used honey instead of agave and added about 1/2 cup raisins. I did use cashews which won't work for your allergy but I say just omit that and add more pumpkin seeds and/or raisins.

INGREDIENTS

½ cup quinoa (do not use red or black quinoa)
4 cups flaked or rolled oats
1 cup oat bran
1 cup coconut chips
1 to 1 ½ cups coarsely chopped nuts (preferably a mix of almonds, pecans and cashews), to taste
¼ cup pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds
½ to 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons coconut oil
3 tablespoons grapeseed or canola oil
½ cup agave syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Combine all dry ingredients including spices. In another bowl whisk the oil and sweetener you are using then mix it well into the dry mixture. Spread it evenly on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake without stirring in a 300F oven for about half an hour. Let cool then break up into clumps.

So how do you make it? It's just a list of ingredients. How do you put it together?
