Ingredients:

Quinoa flakes – 1 cup or 250 gm

Activated cashews – 1/4 cup

Activated sunflower seeds – 1/4 cup

Activated pumpkin seeds – 1/4 cup

  1. Preheat oven to 160 degree C and line a baking tray with baking paper
  2. Roughly chop the activated nuts and seeds
  3. In a clean and dry bowl, combine dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients to it. Combine well to ensure uniform coating.
  4. Spread this mixture on the baking tray, making sure you are pressing it firmly to help the granola stick together & get crunchy.
  5. Cook for 12-18 minutes ( depending on the heat distribution in your oven) or until the mixture turns slightly golden. Keep an eye on the tray as it is easy to burn a granola mix.
  6. Take out of the oven and set aside to cool.
