Try this: Quinoa Granola

IMG_0681

I guess I could have included this recipe in yesterday’s post about healthy breakfast variations, but oh well! Like many people I get tired of eating the same foods all the time so trying out new recipes like this is a good way to change it up. This was my first attempt at making homemade granola, but it was pretty quick and easy. The granola came out tasting crunchy and delicious. I found the recipe on Treats With a Twist.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 C uncooked quinoa
  • 1/2 C raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 C chopped almonds
  • 1/4 C whole flax seed
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions: Combine all ingredients except honey, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Warm honey in a microwave safe bowl for 20 seconds, stopping halfway to stir. Mix cinnamon and salt into warm honey and pour over dry ingredients in mixing bowl, stirring to combine. Cook mixture on a baking sheet for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Stir every 10 minutes throughout the baking process. Let cool & enjoy 🙂
