A bowl of sweet, crunchy goodness!
This granola will satisfy most people's desire for a sweet, crunchy snack, though its taste and look are different from those of conventional granola. You can also have the granola as a cereal with milk. The oats (or quinoa) and dried fruit can have blood sugar consequences, but the quantities are modest and therefore likely to have limited blood sugar effects in most people.
Makes 6 servings:
1/2 cup quinoa flakes or old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup ground flaxseeds (can be purchased pre-ground)
1/4 cup raw hulled pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
1 cup chopped raw cashews
1/2 cup sugar-free vanilla syrup (DaVinci or Torani are good)
1/4 cup walnut oil
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup raisins, dried cherries, or unsweetened dried cranberries
