Gwyneth Paltrow's quinoa granola


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Whisk the oil and maple syrup in a large bowl. Then add the quinoa flakes and stir to thoroughly combine.
  • Line a large oiled baking tray with baking paper and evenly spread the quinoa mixture on top. Sprinkle with a good pinch of salt and cook in the oven for about 15-20 mins until the quinoa is quite dry, crunchy and golden brown, stirring now and again. Remove and set aside to cool completely.
  • When ready, transfer the toasted quinoa to a large bowl and add the walnuts, pumpkin seeds, dried figs and prunes. Toss well and gently mix in the nectarines.
  • Then serve the granola in individual bowls with a good dollop of goat’s milk yoghurt or a slurp of almond milk.
