    Sounds divine! Going to add this to my “must try” list. 🙂

      Bloody hell …….1/4 cup wouldn’t keep a flea active for 5 minutes, let alone a working adult………

        I imagine the worst of it is the hazelnuts and oil! Use fewer hazelnuts I guess, or look for a healthier alternative, then have more!

    Wow, I have most of these as store cupboard ingredients, may sub the hazelnut for almonds & skip the coconut, but sounds lovely.

    Is the quinoa cooked first?

    Nice, I’ve been look for a granola recipe. There are healthier alternatives to canola oil though, I’ll experiment with one of those.

    I’m surprised to see Canola oil in the ingredient list. Hoping it’s a typo and should have said “virgin/unrefined COCONUT” oil!

    This sounds great but is a typical granola – high in fat and calories. The serving size is deceptive. I never eat just 1/4 cup of anything for breakfast. More like what is pictured above the recipe… around 1 cup. That would be a whopping 600 calories, 28 g sugars and 32 g of fat, plus milk.

    I agree with other comments here — 1/4 cup is either a typo or a joke, and canola oil plus lots of honey is really not healthy. Try again….

    Ive been making granola bars for years now. Heres my recipe:
    3Cups Old Fash granola
    1can(14oz) condensed milk
    1tblsp coconut oil
    1cup each of whatever I want to add to it (always healthy options)

    I then cook it at 350 for 20-25mins.
    These become granola bars. How do you make just granola, like able to scoop a handful of the creation.
    Also with my recipe, anyone have any more healthy options than condensed milk to hold the contents together???? Im looking for something with less sugar
