A delicious, crunchy and nutritious addition to your breakfast
- 2 c old fashioned oats
- 1/2 c quinoa (uncooked)
- 1/2 c pure maple syrup
- 1/4 c canola OR coconut oil
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 c chopped pecans
- 1 c chopped walnuts
- 6 tbsp chia seeds
Cook the quinoa as instructed on the packaging.
In a medium size mixing bowl combine the oats, cooked quinoa, walnuts, pecans, chia seeds, salt and cinnamon.
In a separate small mixing bowl, whisk together the syrup and oil until emulsified. Pour liquid into the medium size bowl and stir together the oats and liquid until everything is coated in the liquid.
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour the granola onto the parchment paper and press down with the back of a spoon to create a thin layer. Place in the oven at 300 degrees for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven, stir up granola to allow for even cooking and place back in the oven for 30 more minutes.
You could really use any kind of chopped nuts that you prefer.
