Quinoa Granola

Oh my granola! It’s been so long since I got creative with granola recipes so I’m super excited to share this one with you!

This granola has the perfect balance of sweetness, spice and crunch! I have never baked quinoa before so was intrigued at how well it turned out. Matched up with some mixed nuts, oats and maple syrup creates a delicious crunchy topping for yoghurts, smoothie bowls or even in a bowl with some milk!

This recipe has only 6 ingredients! Less than 5 minutes to throw it altogether then another 15-20 minutes for baking! Dairy, oil and refined sugar free!
