Healthy quinoa granola. Free from oils, syrup and refined sugars.


  • 10 tablespoons puffed quinoa
  • 5 Medjool dates soaked in half a cup of water (keep the date soaking water, I used 7 tablespoons of soaked date water to get the right consistency)
  • 3 tablespoons organic raisins
  • 3 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 2 tablespoons goji berries
  • 1.5 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 5 dried prunes, chopped
  • 5 tablespoons of mixed nuts such as cashews, almonds, Brazilian nuts and hazelnuts), very roughly chopped
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • optional: ½ tsp vanilla powder
  • 3 tablespoons almond butter (or any other nut or seeds butter such as tahini)


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C
  2. Mix the soaked dates (20 min soaking is already enough), almond butter (and a few spoons of date soaked water if needed) in a blender until smooth. It should be smooth, but not too thin. Like a very thick smoothie.
  3. Add all the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix it well with the blended dates and almond butter. All the dry ingredients should be coated.
  4. Spread the granola evenly on a parchment paper. Press with a spoon or flat hand to make it flat. Wet your hand or spoon if it is too sticky.
  5. Bake the granola for more or less 30 minutes, until golden brown and solid.
  6. Let cool, and break the granola into the chunk sizes you like. Keep in an airtight container.
