A simple cupboard staple granola recipe with quinoa & buckwheat adds crunch and plant-based protein to your cereal. Dates are nutrient-dense and used as a sweetener by soaking and blending with other wet ingredients.
Currants have many great health benefits and are the perfect fruit addition as they get nice and chewy during baking & currants generally don’t have added oils + sugars, etc., as some dried fruits do.
The sandwiched sheet pan technique makes for hands-off NO stirring during baking and creates golden crunchy granola clusters. Due to the date-paste method, this recipe is left in the oven to cool when finished cooking.
I find myself eating this on its own with my hot cacao or coffee for a little afternoon pick-me-up treat or with Walnut Milk. I love it!
