Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • ¼ cup uncooked quinoa
  • ½ cup chopped almonds
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 3 tablespoon nut butter of your choice
  • cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • ½ cup dried cherries, chopped

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, quinoa, chopped almonds, and coconut flakes. Stir to combine and set that aside.
  • In a small saucepan, combine maple syrup, nut butter of your choice, coconut oil, cinnamon, and vanilla. Cook that on low for a few minutes until everything is melted together and combined.
  • Add the maple syrup mixture into the oat mixture and toss to combine.
  • Pour the granola onto a cookie sheet and place it in the oven for 15 minutes. After the 15 minutes is up, stir the granola. Place it back in the oven for another 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, stir the granola again. At this point stay close to the oven. Put it back in for 5 minutes, and stir again. When the granola is done, it will smell nutty and look lightly browned.
  • When the granola is done, pour it into a large bowl. Add the chopped cherries and toss to combine. Allow the granola to cool and then store in an airtight container. This granola can be kept for up to 2 weeks in an air tight container.
