Home-made nutty quinoa oat granola! Vegan & Gluten-free!


This morning, I invented this delicious tasty nutty quinoa-oat granola, all home-made of course! πŸ™‚ This is also Vegan & Gluten-free too! I added lots of good stuff to it, just wait & see!

This granola is not so sweet, just the way I like it. My husband thought this was the best granola, I ever made! He gave it 10/10! xxx This would be an ideal food gift!

I love it with cold soy milk, straight from the fridge. Yum yum yum!

Recipe :For a whole lot granola


Dry Ingredients:

1 cup gluten-free medium-sized oat flakes (not instant!) (100 gr)

1/2 cup + 1 teaspoon white uncooked quinoa (100 gr)

1/4 cup + 1 teaspoon red uncooked quinoa (50 gr)

1/4 heaped cup whole hazelnuts (50 gr)

1/2 cup white almond flakes (50 gr)

1/8 cup +1/2 teaspoon sunflower seeds (20 gr)

2 tablespoons broken flaxseed

2 teaspoons black chia seeds or white

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Wet Ingredients:

1/2 cup maple syrup, grade C (125 ml)

To add after roasting:

1/2 cup jumbo red raisins (85 gr)


1. Preheat your oven to 180Β°C (350 F ) for 10 minutes.

2. Take a chopping board & a big knife. Chop your hazelnuts into smaller pieces. Take a large bowl & add all the dry ingredients, so add oat flakes, white quinoa, red quinoa, chopped hazelnuts, almond flakes, sunflower seeds, broken flaxseed, chia seeds & cinnamon. Do not add more cinnamon!!!Β Β You want a hint of it not full on cinnamon, otherwise it is too overpowering! Mix well with a larger spoon.

3. Add wet ingredient aka maple syrup grade C to the bowl of dry combined ingredients. Mix well with a spoon. Take a larger non-stick oven pan & dot with vegan butter, on the bottom & on all the sides. Press your baking paper in it. Divide your granolaΒ all in 1 layer in it. Spread it all evenly out. Roast into the hot oven for about 13-15 ,minutes. After each 5 minutes, take the tray out of the oven & stir everything round into the pan for an equal bake & to prevent burning. Do this again after 10 minutes. Watch your granola carefully! You don’t want it to burn! My granola was ready after 13 minutes. Your house will smell amazing & your granola will be golden brown!

4. With oven gloves on, take it out of the oven. Place it on a rack to cool down. When it is cooled off, add your dried jumbo red raisins & stir everything round. When cooled off, store in a lovely pot with fitted lid. My husband & I ate a bowl o granola when it was still a bit warm , with cold soy milk, straight from the fridge! Very yum too! x

  1. Wow! I would have to make a double batch of this because I would be eating it all day. What a brilliant granola recipe Sophie. Divine!
    Have a wonderful day.

  2. Love that you like it sweet, Sophie πŸ™‚ We have that in common. Smart to use quinoa–fun to vary the textures of the ingredients. Yum!

  3. I love homemade granola! This looks fantastic, Sophie.

  4. you gave me a lightbulb moment with this granola- red quinoa! of course it will not only taste great but look great. i make a lot of granola and chuck in anything i fancy from the cupboard but my hand has not hit the red quinoa YET!

  5. So it’s ok to eat the quinoa uncooked, just heated in the oven?

    1. Ooh yes, grade C is the most healthy one & has all the healthy vitamins & minerals in it & is less sweet, way less sweet! x

  6. It’s always so encouraging to get an enthusiastic response to our own recipes. Looks like a great granola xx

  7. I’m not really good at quinoa as I don’t think it tastes of anything. but adding it to granola sounds like an excellent idea to sneak in some of that healthy stuff in a diet:)

    1. I thought the same thing as you, my friend! Biut here it is very nutty when roasted & crunchy too! xxx
      I love quinoa because it can absorb other flavors too, in cooking & stirring! x

  8. We do not get quinoa here :/ I would love to make this. This will be good to munch for unreasonable hunger pangs πŸ™‚

    1. hahahahahhahahahahahahahha! xxx Maybe, you can use buckwheat kernels & grind them up a bit & then use them in here to roast! πŸ˜‰

  9. We made it this morning & it is the best granola we have ever made! So delicious too! x

  10. I made your tasty granola yesterday morning & the whole house smelled amazing while roasting in the hot oven! That quinoa mix in it is pretty fantastic & so crunchy too!

    I love the fact that you didn’t use any oil!

    Maple syrup, grade C makes all of the difference too! Healthy & not so sweet! xxx
