Granola is a great staple to have in the kitchen. It can be made in advance and makes for a very nutritious breakfast with some natural yogurt or almond/rice milk. Or, for a quick snack, it is perfect to serve with a couple of slices of apple.

This version with peanut butter, nuts and quinoa is completely up my alley and very delicious!

Makes a large jar

1 cup oats

1 cup quinoa

1/2 cup desiccated coconut

1 cup almonds, chopped

1/2 cup sultanas

2 tbsp raw cane sugar or dark muscovado sugar  (or substitute honey)

1 tbsp peanut butter

1 tbsp coconut oil


1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

2. Spread oats, almonds and quinoa onto a lined baking sheet and toast for about 10 minutes in the oven.

3. In a small bowl, combine the coconut oil, peanut butter and muscovado sugar. If your kitchen is cold and the ingredients are not easily combined, place them in a little saucepan over medium heat until they come together.

4. In a large bowl, combine the toasted oats, almonds and quinoa with the sultanas and coconut.

5. Stir the wet ingredients mixture into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon to combine.

6. Spread this mixture onto a lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

7. Wait for the mixture to cool down completely before storing it in an airtight container for about a week.

8. Serve with some yogurt or almond milk for a nutritious and delicious breakfast.
