Hi-Energy, Homemade Quinoa Granola

Hi-Energy, Homemade Quinoa Granola


* Optional Substitution Note

Ingredients to make at least 6 cups (or 24 servings):

  • Dry
    • 5 cup rolled oats (uncooked)
    • 1/3 cup quinoa (uncooked)*
    • 1 cup chopped almonds
    • 1/3 cup chopped pistachios*
    • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
    • 2 tablespoon chia seeds
    • 1 tablespoon flax seeds*
    • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
    • 1 tablespoon maca powder*
    • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • Wet
    • 1/2 cup coconut oil
    • 1/3 cup organic, raw honey

( * ) – denotes optional ingredient


Step 1

In a bowl, dump all of the dry ingredients and mix together. If you purchased raw, whole nuts, break them into coarse pieces using a mallet (or similar object). You can also try to carefully pulse-blend the nuts in a blender or food processor, just be careful not to pulverize them.

Step 2

Pour in the wet ingredients and mix. If either the coconut oil or the honey is hard, simply it in the microwave for a few seconds to melt and then pour into the large bowl with the dry ingredients.

Step 3

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and dump the granola mixture on to it. Evenly spread it out using a spatula and pat it down so that it is packed in tightly.

Step 4

Bake in the oven for 50 minutes at 300F.

Step 5

Once it has finished baking, allow it to cool to about room temperature, before breaking it apart.

Step 6

Grab the parchment paper by the ends and the granola should peel off the paper.

Step 7

Store the granola in an airtight container to preserve the freshness. I’ve had granola last for up to 1 month, depending on the type of container and the ingredients, such as the ones listed here. Making granola with fresh ingredients – such as fruit – will reduce the amount of time the granola will stay fresh.

Serving size is approximately 1/4 cup.
