savory granola with avocado dressing

My oil free savory granola with avocado dressing. Lately I have been seeing savory granolas popping up on Instagram and on blogs, so I wanted to create my own granola bursting with flavour and perfect on top of salads, soups, stews or just as it is. I have paired the granola with a delicious herbs and avocado dressing. The pair will make a simple crispy lettuce into a festive salad. Try it and you will be hooked.


  • 1 cup of glutenfree oat flakes
  • 1 cup puffed quinoa pops
  • 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup of black sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup of white sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of spicy Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons of tamari or Nama shoyu
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup or coconut syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of flaxseeds
  • 3 tablespoons of water

Preheat oven on 180 C or 350 F. Prepare a flax egg by combining 1 tablespoon of flaxseeds with 3 tablespoons of water, mix well. Set aside. Combine all dry ingredients. Mix all the wet ingredients, including the flax egg until smooth. Combine all ingredients and put onto  a baking paper lined tin. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown mixing regularly to prevent burning. Let it cool completely and store in a airtight container. 

This granola is delicious sprinkled on salads, soups, stews or just a quick snack.
