If you have followed my blog for awhile you know I love granola. If we don’t have a tupperware of granola in our pantry my family doesn’t know how to function. They forget that you can eat yogurt without granola in it. I have to admit, I am the same way though. Granola is not only awesome on yogurt (or in these pretty Yogurt Parfaits) but it is a healthy snack. I usually have a ziploc bag of granola in my purse for those times I need a high protein and fiber snack to grab and go. The great thing about this granola is that it is chuck-full of lots of healthy whole grains. Have you tried chia seeds yet? They are such a fun new way to add fiber and nutrition to your diet. I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for ways to add fiber to my diet (it must be an old-lady thing. Ha!). Between the chia seeds, flaxseed, quinoa and oats, this is an excellent recipe to add to your repertoire. I LOVE this new recipe and hope you do too.

Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together all of the wet ingredients. Once combined, pour this mixture evenly over the dry ingredients. With a large wooden spoon, combine together until all of the dry ingredients are moist with the wet ingredients. The more wet and sticky the mixture, the larger the clumps/pieces the granola will have when it's done being baked. On two cookie sheets, place a large piece of parchment paper. Spray the top of the paper heavily with cooking spray. Spread evenly the granola mixture over both cookie sheets. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Place both of the cookie sheets into the oven and let bake for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, remove the granola and stir with a spatula. Place the sheets back into the oven and bake another 20 minutes. Remove from the oven again and stir both of the pans of granola around. Place the pans back into the oven, turn off the heat and let the granola sit in the oven, drying out for 2-3 hours. If you are in a hurry you can also continue baking for 15-20 minute increments until totally dry. You will want to make sure that the granola doesn't become to golden brown or it will have a slight burned flavor. I like the leaving it in the oven method because then there is no chance of over cooking the granola and it works out perfect every time 🙂
