Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325ºF and line a baking sheet (or 2, if they're smaller) with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the rolled oats, uncooked quinoa, sliced almonds, pecans, and chia seeds.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, coconut oil, cinnamon and kosher salt.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and stir until all the dry ingredients are coated. Spread the granola mixture into an even layer on the prepared baking sheet(s).
  5. Bake for 40 minutes to an hour, turning the pan halfway through and mixing gently to ensure it doesn't burn.
  6. Remove from the oven and press down slightly to help form clusters, and then let cool completely without disturbing to help the clumps form. Toss in the dried cranberries.
  7. Store in a sealed container or bag at room temperature for about a month.
