Apricot Quinoa Granola Recipe


  • 2 c. old-fashioned oats
  • 1 c. quinoa (uncooked)
  • 1 c. roughly-chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 c. dried apricots, chopped
  • 1/4 c. honey (or maple syrup to make it vegan)
  • 2 T. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


  1. Combine and mix the oats, quinoa, pecans, salt, apricots, and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  2. Stir in the honey and coconut oil
  3. Bake on a parchment-lined baking sheet for 20 minutes at 325F. Stir once halfway. Sprinkle coconut over and return to oven for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool on baking sheet. To create clusters in your granola, when it is still warm, press handfuls of granola gently together.
  5. As with all of my granola recipes, this recipe is completely customizable and flexible! Swap our your favorite nut instead of pecans, or use a different dried fruit than apricot. I’m always changing the recipe based on what I have around the house!
