Well, this recipe was suppose to go out on Monday. But if you watched my instagram story you’d know that I had a horrible migraine from Friday to Monday. The worst part of it was on Sunday when I felt super nauseous. I didn’t have the energy or the stomach to sit in front of the computer to write a post.

So Wednesday it is!

Our family goes through granola like nobody’s business. There are definitely times I buy bags of it when it’s on sale but it’s more because I can’t keep up with the demand at our house.

One of my favorite brand’s of granola is Love Crunch … more specifically the Dark Chocolate & Red Berries kind. So yummy! But incredibly addicting. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

When I’m not “cheating” and buying granola I’m testing out new ones. And todays recipe is filled with all the goods.

And by “goods”, I mean. Nuts. Seeds. Quinoa and Coconut.

Is anyone else obsessed with toasted coconut or is it just me?

I always find myself picking out the chunks of coconut from a bag. Kinda like I do the rye chips in a bag of Gardettos.

Anywho. Back to the granola.

This bad boy is completely gluten free and  is naturally sweetened with maple syrup then warmed up with spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. Once it’s all tossed together this granola goodness is put in the oven and toasted which makes it absolutely delicious!

If you haven’t had toasted quinoa before you’re going to love it. It’s a crunchy treat that’s filled with fiber.

I found myself just snacking on it during the day. After all this granola is just nuts. But beyond just snacking, this granola is great with yogurt and berries. Drizzle a little chocolate on top and you have yourself a tasty dessert!

  1. Yes, yes, PERFECT! I love how this granola is made with quinoa instead of oats. Not that I don’t like oats, but it’s a great change! Would it be okay if I included this recipe in a granola round-up on my page? I would also love to try making it myself!
