I love making Granola! I make it all different kids of ways with healthy ingredients. This granola is loaded with great things! My favorite addition to this one is some quinoa. Gives the granola a great crunch, texture, and great added nutrients.
1\4 cup almonds
1\4 cup walnuts
2 tablespoons chia flax seed mix
2 tablespoon dry quinoa
2 cups oatmeal
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup honey
1\4 cup coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
Place nuts in a plastic bag to crunch up. I used the bottom of my canning jar to smash them up or a rolling pin would work well.
Add all dry ingredients in to a large bowl. Put peanut butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and honey into a microwave safe bowl (I used my large measuring cup). Put wet mixture into microwave for 1 minute. Stir wet mixture in to dry ingredients and stir until well blended.
Poor mixture on to wax paper. Press mixture together and let cool in the fridge for a couple of hours.
This is great to eat anytime! Easy for a snack on the go or when I need a little dessert. I break off a piece and put some cool whip on top yum!
