  • Mix quinoa, steel-cut oats, almonds, cranberries, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, coconut flakes, chia seeds, flax seeds, cocoa powder, and cinnamon together in a large bowl.

  • Combine honey, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and stevia in a microwave-safe bowl. Heat in the microwave until melted together, 30 seconds to 1 minute.

  • Pour honey mixture over the quinoa mixture; mix well to combine. Spread in an even layer on the baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 30 minutes. Let cool completely before breaking into pieces, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For every optional item used, add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or honey or 1/2 of each in step 3.
