Great Grains Maple Cranberry Granola



I love a good granola.

While most of my recipes are inspired by my want to make healthier versions of my favorite foods (for Ethan's sake), this one was a happy lil' accident.

I was throwing a baby shower and forgot the granola for the yogurt parfaits. I didn't remember until 10pm the night before and I WAS NOT going to the store the next morning. I was also short on ingredients for the granola I wanted to make so, I improvised... and it came together quite splendidly.


TIP: Stir every few minutes or else it may burn. You can cook at a lower temperature for longer time but you will have to play with your own oven.

What you'll need:

  • 2 cups oats- I used Trader Joe's Rolled Oats (not quick cooking)

  • 1.5-2 cups cooked quinoa

  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds

  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

  • 2 tbsp. fat (oil of choice or butter)

  • 1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup (I used 1/4 cup but sweeten to taste)

  • Couple tbsp. of chia (or another seed)

  • Pinch of salt

Put it together:

  • Combine wet ingredients until mixed well

  • Combine dry ingredients

  • Pour wet over dry and mix well

  • Spread on tray sprayed with cooking spray

  • Bake at 350F until golden- about 25-45 minutes

Enjoy!
