Almond Cranberry Quinoa Granola



If you are looking for super crunchy granola clusters, then look no further! I always seem to be making a fresh batch of granola every week as it just does not last in our household! It’s great as a topping for fresh fruit, yoghurt, chia puddings, bircher muesli, smoothie bowls or just munch on them as a snack! Here, I have used quinoa flakes as a gluten-free option, but it can be substituted for oats if you don’t have quinoa flakes. Crunchy granola clusters are the best!

    What’s vanilla bean paste? If I don’t have it, can I use something else or just not use it?

    Hi Tenisha,
    I would substitute the banana with 2 tbsp coconut oil and I would substitute the honey with 2 tbsp maple syrup or agave syrup xx.

    Hi Ivory,
    If you don’t have vanilla bean paste, I would use vanilla extract or you can just simply leave it out 🙂

    Hi Jinan,
    I do most of my shopping at Organic Foods & Cafe on Sheikh Zayed Road, Holland & Barrett and Milk & Honey.
    Hope that helps xx.

    I am wondering about what Shani said. Are quinoa flakes different from the regular quinoa that you buy at the store before it is cooked?
