I’m a huge fan on homemade granola – it is so easy to make and well worth the effort. This is a nut-free granola with quinoa, seeds and goji berries and it is delicious. So good that I have eaten it for breakfast and dessert for the past week!
The quinoa adds l lovely nutty taste and ensures it stays super crunchy once it has been added to your yoghurt or milk – I cannot stand soggy cereal. Serve topped with fresh seasonal fruit. Enjoy xx
To make, add the dry ingredients to a large bowl, add your coconut oil and maple, that you have warmed slightly, and mix to combine well.
Spread out on a tray and bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Add your chia seeds and goji berries and you are done.
It is a very adaptable recipe so skip the oats entirely and sub nuts to make it a grain-free granola. Add spices such as cinnamon, all spice, and vanilla and whatever dried fruit you like.
Store in an airtight container for a couple of months, but its unlikely it will last that long…
