Total Time1 hr 5 mins
Servings: 28 1/4 cup servings
- 2 1/4 cups regular or gluten-free rolled oats
- 1 cup quinoa, uncooked
- 3/4 cup whole raw almonds
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/4 cup hulled hemp seeds
- 1/4 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
- 1/4 cup raw pecans, chopped
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/2 cup light agave nectar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/3 cup dried cranberries
- 1/3 cup dried cherries
Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the rolled oats, quinoa, almonds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, coconut and pecans. Mix well. In a smaller bowl combine the maple syrup, light agave nectar and vanilla. Add the liquids into the dry ingredients and stir well to make sure everything is evenly combined.
Spread the mix in an even, thin layer on the baking sheet. Sprinkle the cinnamon evenly on top. Bake for one hour.
Remove from the oven and allow the granola to cool down. The granola will stick just slightly to the parchment but should be easy to remove with a spatula. Once cool, stir in the dried cranberries and cherries.
Store in an airtight container for up to 4 weeks.
