Gluten-Free Quinoa Granola

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup high-quality maple syrup
  • 3 cups quinoa flakes
  • Pinch of coarse sea salt
  • 1 1/4 cups roughly chopped raw walnuts
  • 3/4 cup roughly chopped dried figs
  • 3/4 cup roughly chopped pitted prunes

PREPARATION

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Whisk together the olive oil and maple syrup in a large mixing bowl and add the quinoa flakes, stirring to combine thoroughly.
  3. Evenly spread the quinoa on a parchment-lined baking sheet and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  4. Roast, stirring now and then, until the flakes are dried and crunchy and a lovely golden brown, about 25 minutes.
  5. Let the quinoa mixture cool completely before mixing with the remaining ingredients. Store in a glass jar for up to 2 weeks.

Makes 12 half-cup servings.
