what you'll need

  • 3 cups oats thick-cut or old-fashioned, uncooked
  • 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar light or dark

let's do it

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, mix together oats, quinoa, chia seeds, almonds, cinnamon and salt until evenly distributed. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, stir together vanilla, oil and brown sugar until well combined. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients then stir until everything is well coated.
  • Spread evenly over prepared baking sheet, pressing slightly so granola sticks together, forming clusters after they are baked.
  • Bake for 40–50 minutes or until golden brown and completely dry, stirring occasionally for even browning. Remove from oven then cool completely on the pan. Break up any large chunks but leave smaller clusters intact. Transfer to an airtight container or zip-top bag and enjoy for up to a month.
