Store bought granola usually contains extra unnecessary sugars, salt, and other additives that our bodies do not need. Homemade granola has a simple formula that makes it so easy to make in a jiffy. The concept of a "Compost Granola" is that you can follow the basic formula but add whatever you have at home and infuse it with your own favourite flavours. —Dee
What You'll Need
whole rolled oats
uncooked quinoa, rinsed and dry
of your favourite nuts (I used hazlenuts and raw almonds, chopped))
seeds, unsalted (I used sunflower and sesame)
unsweetened coconut flakes
toasted coconut (large) flakes, (optional)
coconut oil, at liquid form (heat if still solid)
Preheat oven to 275 F
In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients together until well mixed.
In a smaller mixing bowl, mix wet ingredients together. (Prior to mixing, make sure honey and oil are in liquid form- if they aren't heat them until liquidized).
Combine both mixtures and pour a thin layer onto 2 well lined sheet pans. Cook for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes to achieve an even color.
Remove from oven and transfer into a large bowl. When cooled, store in an airtight container.
