Cooking dish: 30x38 cm


Ingredients

  vegetable oil spray, or butter , for the baking sheet    
500 g quinoa flakes   5 1/2 cups
1 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes   120 g
1 1/4 cup almonds, coarsely chopped   180 g
1/3 cup canola oil   85 mL
1/4 cup honey   90 g
1/3 cup maple syrup   85 mL

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F. Lightly oil a large baking sheet (about 30 x 38 cm).
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Pour the oil, honey, and maple syrup into a small bowl, then warm it up about 30 seconds in a microwave oven. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients then toss well. Spread the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 25 to 30 min or until golden brown and crispy. Stir every 10 min to brown evenly and avoid burning the mixture.
  4. Let the granola cool down: It will become crispier and dry as it cools. Make sure to break up any large clumps of granola while the mixture is still warm. Once it has completely cooled, transfer it to an airtight container or plastic bag.

Remarks

The granola will keep for several weeks in the refrigerator; up to 3 months in the freezer.
