  • 200g Almond, skin on, coarse chopped
  • 100g Walnuts, coarse chopped

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C
  2. Mix the quinoa, nibs, oats, sunflower, pumpkin & sesame seeds, almonds, walnuts, salt & spices together well in a large bowl.
  3. Heat the butter in a large saucepan to melt and add the honey. Bring to a boil and pour onto the dried ingredients mixing well with a wooden spoon, spatula or paddle attachment in a mixer.
  4. Spread the granola 1cm thick and evenly onto baking trays lined with baking paper and bake for 18 minutes or until golden brown. Make sure the granola is cooked sufficiently to ensure you get crunchy clusters.
