Author Notes: This morning, I invented this delicious tasty nutty quinoa-oat granola, all home-made of course! :) This is also Vegan & Gluten-free too! I added lots of good stuff to it, just wait & see!
This granola is not so sweet, just the way I like it. My husband thought this was the best granola, I ever made! He gave it 10/10! xxx This would be an ideal food gift!
I love it with cold hemp milk, straight from the fridge. Yum yum yum!

Serves: for a whole lot granola

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup gluten-free medium-sized oat flakes (not instant!) (100 gr)
  • 1/2 cup
    1 teaspoon white uncooked quinoa (100 gr)

  • 1/4 cup
    1 teaspoon red uncooked quinoa (50 gr)

  • 1/4 heaped cups whole hazelnuts (50 gr)
  • 1/8 cup
    1 teaspoon sunflower seeds (20 gr)

  • 2 tablespoons broken flaxseed
  • 2 teaspoons black chia seeds or white
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup, grade C (125 ml)
  • To add after roasting: 1/2 cup jumbo red raisins (85 gr)
  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350 F ) for 10 minutes. Take a chopping board & a big knife. Chop your hazelnuts into smaller pieces. Take a large bowl & add all the dry ingredients, so add oat flakes, white quinoa, red quinoa, chopped hazelnuts, almond flakes, sunflower seeds, broken flaxseed, chia seeds & cinnamon. Do not add more cinnamon!!! You want a hint of it not full on cinnamon, otherwise it is too overpowering! Mix well with a larger spoon.
  2. Add wet ingredient aka maple syrup grade C to the bowl of dry combined ingredients. Mix well with a spoon. Take a larger non-stick oven pan & dot with vegan butter, on the bottom & on all the sides. Press your baking paper in it. Divide your granola all in 1 layer in it. Spread it all evenly out. Roast into the hot oven for about 13-15 minutes. After each 5 minutes, take the tray out of the oven & stir everything round into the pan for an equal bake & to prevent burning. Do this again after 10 minutes. Watch your granola carefully! You don’t want it to burn! My granola was ready after 13 minutes. Your house will smell amazing & your granola will be golden brown! With oven gloves on, take it out of the oven. Place it on a rack to cool down. When it is cooled off, add your dried jumbo red raisins & stir everything round. When cooled off, store in a lovely pot with fitted lid. My husband & I ate a bowl o granola when it was still a bit warm , with cold hemp milk, straight from the fridge! Very yum too! x
