Quinoa is a really easy way to add some extra protein to your favorite snack. This granola is only seven ingredients, and half a cup gives you nine grams of protein. It’s a perfect addition to yogurt in the morning, or to eat by the handful throughout the day.

1/2cup Uncooked Quinoa
2cups Raw Almondsroughly chopped
1tbsp Coconut Sugar
3 1/2tbsp Coconut Oil
1/4cup Agave Nectar

Dried Cranberriesto taste
Preheat oven to 340 degrees Fahrenheit.
Add oats, quinoa, almonds, coconut sugar, and salt to a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
In a small saucepan, stir together coconut oil and maple syrup. Warm over medium heat for two to three minutes, whisking frequently until totally combined with no visible separations.
Immediately pour over dry ingredients and stir to combine until all oats and nuts are thoroughly coated. Arrange on a large baking sheet and spread into an even layer.
Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and stir/toss. Turn the pan around and bake five to 10 minutes more. Watch carefully to prevent burning. Granola will be a deep golden brown and very fragrant when done.
Let cool completely before enjoying. Store in a sealed bag at room temperature.
