Hi-Energy, Homemade Quinoa Granola

by FitMenCook

Ingredients to make at least 6 cups (or 24 servings):

  • Dry
    • 5 cup rolled oats (uncooked)
    • 1/3 cup quinoa (uncooked)*
    • 1 cup chopped almonds
    • 1/3 cup chopped pistachios*
    • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
    • 2 tablespoon chia seeds
    • 1 tablespoon flax seeds*
    • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
    • 1 tablespoon maca powder*
    • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • Wet
    • 1/2 cup coconut oil
    • 1/3 cup organic, raw honey

( * ) – denotes optional ingredient



  1. In a bowl, dump all of the dry ingredients and mix together. If you purchased raw, whole nuts, break them into coarse pieces using a mallet (or similar object). You can also try to carefully pulse-blend the nuts in a blender or food processor, just be careful not to pulverize them.
  2. Pour in the wet ingredients and mix. If either the coconut oil or the honey is hard, simply it in the microwave for a few seconds to melt and then pour into the large bowl with the dry ingredients.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and dump the granola mixture on to it. Evenly spread it out using a spatula and pat it down so that it is packed in tightly.
  4. Bake in the oven for 50 minutes at 300F.
  5. Once it has finished baking, allow it to cool to about room temperature, before breaking it apart.
  6. Grab the parchment paper by the ends and the granola should peel off the paper.
  7. Store the granola in an airtight container to preserve the freshness. I’ve had granola last for up to 1 month, depending on the type of container and the ingredients, such as the ones listed here. Making granola with fresh ingredients – such as fruit – will reduce the amount of time the granola will stay fresh.
