Preheat the oven to 160ºC.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
Roughly chop the nuts and put them into a bowl.
Add in the wheat and bran germ, oats, quinoa flakes and all the seeds and mix everything together.
In a small saucepan over a low heat, combine the oil, molasses, cinnamon, ginger and vanilla extract stirring all the time until dissolved.
Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients mixture and mix well until everything is well coated.

Allow the mixture to cool completely in the tray and then store in an airtight jar or container.

Mais uma fantástica receita do blogue da Helena, esta granola, recheada de produtos fabulosos, é o pequeno almoço perfeito para toda a família.
Substitui alguns produtos, sendo eles, o farelo de aveia em vez de farelo de trigo, usei castanha caju em vez de castanha de baru, nozes pecã em vez de nozes e óleo de côco, em vez do azeite.
