multi-grain granola with millet and amaranth

i don’t think there’s a wrong way to make granola. you can throw anything in; oats, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, and grains. add some chocolate too. the options are endless. this multi-grain granola is packed with nutrition and loads of crunch.

making granola at home is so easy, i should do it more. store bought granola is too sweet and typically loaded with fat and calories. by making it at home i control what goes in and what doesn’t.

stella is sticking to her vegan diet, so now more than ever i want to make sure she’s getting all the nutrients her body needs. by adding millet and amaranth,  this granola is packed with protein and i love the crunchy texture. i kept it simple with almonds and pumpkin seeds, but coconut and dried fruit would be delicious too.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats (i used these Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats [5] )
  • 3/4 cup uncooked Millet [6]
  • 3/4 cup uncooked Amaranth [7]
  • 1 cup raw almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
 

Directions:

  • line a Rimmed Baking Sheet [8] with parchment paper
  • preheat the oven to 300°
  • in a large bowl combine the oats with the millet, amaranth, almonds, seeds, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg
  • in a small saucepan over medium-low heat warm the coconut oil with the maple syrup and brown sugar
  • once melted, remove the saucepan from the heat, stir in vanilla and pour over oat mixture, stir to evenly coat
  • press mixture into an even layer on the baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown
  • cool completely before storing in an airtight  Container [9] (can be kept for up to one week)

we LOVE granola clumps. to get more granola clusters, do not stir the granola  while it bakes. i like to let is sit for a few minutes after baking, and then gently stir to keep the clusters in tact.

i skipped the fruit, but adding dried apples to this multi-grain granola would be delicious too. enjoy!
