Granola Tuesday!

granola (2)

I don’t make granola very often but I made this last week and I liked it enough to share the recipe. I put it on top of plain Greek yogurt and salads but you can eat it with milk too. It is high in nutrients, fibre, and calories so 1/3 cup will do it for a serving (unless you are my mom who trains for super triathlons…in which case, fill your boots!)


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds (the green ones)
  • 1/2 chopped apricots
  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  1. Mix everything together in a glass baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 20min.  Let cool before enjoying.
