By: Cox's Honey
Servings: 8

Ingredients

  • 3/8 cup coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 4 cups oats
  • 1 1/2 cups almonds sliced or slivered
  • 1/2 cup white quinoa (uncooked)
  • 1/2 cup sprouted pepitas (can use regular, unsalted)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup goji berries (optional)

Directions

Mix together honey, coconut oil and vanilla. Melt in microwave in increments of 20 seconds until just melted/combined. Set aside.

 

Mix together oats, almonds, pepitas, quinoa, salt and cinnamon. Pour wet ingredients over, mix until all parts are coated – can use hands.

 

Spread mixture onto a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Toast in oven on 325 degrees Fahrenheit, for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown, rotating pan once halfway through.

 

Let cool completely. Break up into bowl and toss in goji berries, if desired.

 

Tip

For added flavor, toast quinoa before adding to granola: Toast on dry pan over medium heat for 5-7 minutes, until you hear popping/smells like popcorn. Remove immediately from heat and let cool.

 

1 cup coconut flakes can be added to dry mix before baking for added crunch.

 

Add in 1/4 cup dried goji berries for an extra superfood boast AFTER granola has baked. After granola has cooled, break into chunks into a bowl and toss together before serving. Do not bake goji berries or they’ll become hard as rocks!
