Home made granola is simply a mixture of rolled oats, nuts, seeds and spices, which are mixed along with oil or melted butter and honey or maple syrup and baked in oven until they turns golden brown..While my shopping to the organic shop, i found the popped quinoas and immediately i bought two packets of those popped quinoa for making out either muesli or to have them simply as breakfast with honey and milk..finally i prepared those popped quinoa as home made granola with rolled oats, seeds, dry fruits, cinnamon powder, salt and with honey,baked everything in oven until they turns golden brown....Healthy, delicious, prefect breakfast to enjoy without any guilt as i used honey to prepare this beautiful home made granola..Everyone at home had this homemade quinoa granola today for our breakfast and we loved it..Gonna prepare with few more variations and with maple syrup next time..

1cup Rolled oats
1/4cup Almonds (chopped finely)
1/2cup Sunflower seeds & pumpking seeds
1/2tsp Cinnamon powder
3tbsp Melted butter
1/2cup Dry fruits (i used raisins, dates, cranberries )
Preheat the oven to 325F..line a baking sheet over a baking tray, mix the rolled oats, popped quinoa, nuts, seeds,dry fruits,cinnamon powder and salt...In an another bowl stir together the melted butter and honey, pour this mixture over the already mixed mixture, mix well..make sure all the dry ingredients are well coated..Spread this mixture over the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25minutes until they turns golden brown..
This granola may be sticky once removed from the oven, but it will became crispy and dry once it gets cool..Break the large clumps of granola while the mixture is still warm, once the granola get completely cooled, store in an airtight container and serve as breakfast...
