As promised, a continuation of my previous granola post with this healthy homemade granola (part 2) that you will also
love L O V E! It’s super easy to make and awesome to have readily available to top your favorite yogurt with, sprinkle in your salads or just munch on throughout the day.
This one has so much CRUNCH in it!!! Loaded with protein, large chunks of toasted coconut chips, pepitas (aka pumpkin seeds), quinoa, and chia seeds. I know, drool, right? It’s amazing and making homemade granola is just the easiest thing on the planet.
We have a couple of Amish communities nearby and the store in Jamesport carries bulk products. I get to stock up on oats, seeds, quinoa & chia at really great prices y’all, so much cheaper than in grocery stores. Let me share this deliciousness with you!
Healthy Homemade Granola (Part 2)
A bit of a background on the creation of this combo granola. You know quinoa and chia are all the rage and for good reasons. They are super foods and are full of nutrients, fiber and antioxidants. Why not combine them in granola form and get a jumpstart to your mornings? That’s exactly what I did and the combination is amazing and I feel I can tackle anything afterwards. Well, except the pile of dishes in the sink!?
The added cinnamon, coconut oil and syrup just gives it a light amount of sweetness and helps with the baking part as well as holding the mixture together. Give it a go and let me know what you think.
Hope you have a blessed weekend and thank you for reading and following along!
