Quinoa adds extra crunch and nutrients to this crunchy, tasty granola recipe!



  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup quinoa (uncooked)
  • 1 cup slivered or roughly-chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp. melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup shaved coconut (or 2/3 cup grated coconut)
  • 6 oz. dried apricots
  • 6 oz. dried cherries or cranberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together oats, quinoa, almonds, honey, coconut oil, salt and cinnamon until combined. Spread the mixture out on a foil- or parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring once halfway. Remove sheet and sprinkle the shaved coconut evenly over the top of the granola. Bake for an additional 3-5 minutes (watch closely) until the coconut is toasted. Remove and let cool, then stir in dried fruit and toss to combine.
  3. Serve immediately or store in a sealed container for up to 2 weeks.
