Directions

1. Preheat oven to 300°. Place the quinoa, oats, coconut, flax meal and cinnamon in a medium mixing bowl and mix thoroughly.

2. Combine the honey, maple syrup and oil, and pour over the quinoa mixture. Mix to evenly coat the dry ingredients.

3. Spread the mixture on a parchment paper lined large cookie sheet.

4. Bake for about 35 minutes, mixing every 10 minutes to evenly roast and prevent burning.

5. Remove and add the almonds, pistachios and pumpkin seeds.

6. Mix and bake for another 15 minutes, stirring once or twice more.

7. Remove from the oven and add the dried cranberries and raisins to the granola mix. The granola is now ready to eat.
