Happy Sunday friends!
Here’s the recipe I posted a few days ago on my Instagram account. This is totally delicious, easy to make, oil free and super healthy! The granola is packed with tons of nutrients, including protein from quinoa, iron, vitamin C and folic acid! It is super flavorful and can be raw or baked. As you wish!
Gastrawnomica’s Raw (or baked) Quinoa Granola
Makes around 1 cup of granola
1/2 cup sprouted red quinoa
2 Tbsp dry shredded (unsweetened) coconut
1/4 cup chopped nuts of choice (I used almonds, cashews and pecans)
3 dates, chopped
2 Tbsp raisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup date paste (honey or maple syrup can be used)
Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until everything is evenly mixed and the fruit, quinoa and nuts are coated with date paste and vanilla. Bring mixture to dehydrator at highest temperature and dehydrate overnight or until the granola is dry.
Alternately, you can bake at 160ºC for around 30 minutes until crispy and dry. I served my granola with coconut yogurt, bananas and a pinch of cinnamon. It was delicious!
Enjoy and let me know what you think!
