Quinoa Granola Recipe

Last Update: June 28, 2023

Good granola is all about the crunch. Whether you sprinkle a handful on top of Greek-style yogurt or enjoy a bowl with a splash of almond milk, you want the texture to hold up. We added uncooked quinoa to this recipe for even more bite—plus a healthy dose of protein.
