Perfectly Clumpy Vegan Granola w/ Sprouted Quinoa (Grain-Free)

This is a recipe I’ve been sitting on for over 6 months (!) but haven’t posted until now because, like a huge doofus, I lost the recipe before I could write it here. And actually, thinking about it now, I can’t even remember where I found my notebook the other day! It was probably buried amongst my three million cookbooks / recipe printouts from online. I have this habit of printing out all the recipes I like from other bloggers, and I have a few big binders full of them.

But ANYWAYS.

There are two types of people in the world – people who like clumpy granola, and people who like loose granola. I’m sorry loose granola-ers, but this post is not for you. This granola recipe is the ultimate grain-free, clumpy granola recipe – it bakes in one huge clump, so you could (in theory) just eat thisΒ one baking-sheet sized clump of granola. Perfect!

Perfectly Clumpy Vegan Granola w/ Sprouted Quinoa (Grain-Free)

This is the ULTIMATE clumpy vegan granola recipe; plus it's gluten-free and grain-free!
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Total Time 18 minutes

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Cups Sprouted Quinoa
  • 1/2 Cup Sprouted Sunflower Seeds
  • 2/3 Cup Pepitas
  • 1/2 Cup Sliced Almonds
  • 1/3 Cup Shredded Coconut
  • 2 Tbs Ground Flaxseed

Wet Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs Coconut Oil melted
  • 5 Tbs Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tbs Honey or more maple syrup
  • 1/8 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/8 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Tbs Water

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix dry ingredients - sprouted quinoa, sunflower seeds, pepitas, almonds, coconut, and flaxseed. Mix until evenly combined.
  3. In a smaller bowl, mix wet ingredients - coconut oil, maple syrup, honey, vanilla water, and spices - until evenly combined.
  4. Mix wet and dry ingredients until everything is evenly coated.
  5. On a baking tray lined with parchment paper, spread out granola so it is about 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick.
  6. Bake in the oven for 12-13 minutes WITHOUT stirring. This will ensure the granola bakes in one huge clump.
  7. Once the granola is done and slightly cooled, break up granola into clumps. I liked mine served with coconut yogurt and berries, but the granola is delicious on its own as a snack!
  8. Enjoy!

    This looks beautiful!!! I simply have to try it. I guess, if I would reduce the amount of maple syrup/honey, the granola will lose its clumpiness, right?

      Thank you!! :) I think you could reduce it the amount of maple syrup/honey a little bit, but if you omit it altogether, it won’t clump as well.
