- Preheat oven to 350°F. Place quinoa in a small bowl and cover with water. Set aside and let soak. Once most of the water is absorbed, rinse and drain quinoa removing as much water as possible.
- Combine coconut oil, syrup, vanilla and salt in a large bowl and mix until well combined. Add oats, quinoa, nuts and dates and toss until everything is evenly coated.
- Spread granola mixture across two baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 25 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
- Divide coconut amongst pans and place back in oven for an additional 10-15 minutes, tossing once, until granola is lightly browned. Allow to cool completely before storing.
