Ingredients
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats*
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed
  • 1/3 cup uncooked white quinoa
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
  • 1 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup or honey
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or craisins
  • 1/2 cup dried apple chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 340 degrees F.

  2. Combine oats, flax, quinoa, nuts, spices, and salt to a large mixing bowl.

  3. Stir together oil, applesauce, and maple syrup in a medium mixing bowl. Pour wet mixture over dry ingredients and stir well.

  4. Arrange mixture on a large baking sheet and spread into an even layer. Bake for 20 minutes. Then remove from oven and toss the granola around on the sheet pan. Bake 5-10 minutes more. Watch carefully as to not burn. When the granola is done it should have a golden brown color.
