Quinoa Breakfast Crunch

May 14, 2019

 

This recipe is nice for variety.  It's a welcome change from the typical rolled oats used in granola.  Go ahead and substitute other nuts in place of the seeds, if desired.  

 

Quinoa Breakfast Crunch

 

  • 1 cup quinoa

  • 1/4 cup nut butter

  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup or honey

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds

 

1.  Heat oven to 300. 

 

2.  Toast quinoa for 20 minutes. 

 

3.  Stir and cook another 15-20 minutes. 

 

4.  Mix hot quinoa with nut butter.

 

5.  Mix in sweetener and seeds.  

 

6.  Store in the fridge and use as you would granola.  

 

 

NOTES

 

Make sure you either buy pre-washed quinoa, or rinse/soak and dry it yourself.

 

Add unsweetened coconut, if desired.  

 

The quinoa will be a little hard right after you mix it up, but it will be perfect after sitting overnight in the fridge.

Use organic ingredients.

 

Use sprouted and dried quinoa.

 

Use nut butter made from sprouted or soaked nuts.
