First, gather all of your ingredients. You can add in or take out certain nuts or dried fruit to fit your tastes. The original recipe called for dried cherries in addition to the raisins.
Combine all of the nuts in the food processor. Blend for about 15-20 seconds until all nuts are thoroughly chopped. If you don't have a food processor, look for pre-chopped nuts at the grocery store.
This is what the nut mixture should look like once you're all done.
Combine all other dry ingredients (oats, quinoa, chia seeds, raisins) in a large bowl.
Add the nut mixture to the ingredients in the large bowl. Stir.
Add olive oil (3 tablespoons) and honey (2 tablespoons) to dry ingredients and stir thoroughly. If you tend to like sweet-tasting granola, add slightly more honey.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper (this is not necessary, but makes everything easier), then pour granola all over the baking sheet.
Spread out granola so it's one even later. I recommend using a rubber spatula to minimize stickiness.
Place baking sheet in the 350-degree oven. Bake for about 20 min. Check granola about halfway through -- if edges look like they're burning, stir the granola, then continue baking
After about 20 min, granola should be golden. Take granola out of the oven and let sit for about 1 hour so it can fully dry and get its crunch. Store granola in ziplock bag or sealed container. Enjoy!
