Description

This chocolate granola only takes one bowl and 10 minutes of prep work! It’s studded with cherries and health boosted with chia seeds and quinoa.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups quinoa, cooked
  • 2 cups oats
  • ⅓ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup dried cherries
  • ¼ cup mini chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Stir together all the ingredients EXCEPT the cherries and chocolate chips.
  3. Spread out, as much as possible, on a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Stir and return to oven for another 10 minutes.
  6. Keep stirring and baking at 5-10 minute intervals, until the granola just starts to crisp up. Be careful not to burn it. Once the granola cools down, it crisps up even more.
  7. Allow to cool and then transfer to an airtight container. Stir in the dried cherries and mini chocolate chips.
