This is a brand of quinoa flakes, which I think is a hunter superfood.  I'd use this as a base, maybe adding some ghee, walnut oil, puffed brown rice, chopped walnuts, pumpkin seeds, honey, a bit of plain molasses, a pinch of salt and a dash of cinnamon.

Mix well, spread on a baking sheet, leave on low heat, turning a few times as it lightly browns, taking it out before it gets hard.  Then mix in some chopped dates and/or dried mango and pineapple.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.

That sounds great Victoria!

Andrea, I thought hubby was a gatherer?

This is not granola, but a Hunter compliant treat. Good on occasion for "on the go."

I can buy this at Wegmans.

Did you see the recipe I posted in the recipes called Quinoa Granola?  He might like that if the ingredients are okay for him.  I have changed it a bit to include more nuts and less quinoa flakes, and the latest batch has only molasses in it.

That's the same quinoa that I use in my granola.

This is what my latest batch of granola contained.

Combine the following in a large bowl:
About 3 cups of quinoa flakes
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 or 1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup rice bran
1/4 cup flax seed meal
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

In a smaller bowl, combine:
1/2 cup hot water
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup unsulphured molasses
1/4 cup agave or honey (I was supposed to add this, but I didn't; you could use some of each)
Stir these combined ingredients into the dry ingredients and spread out on a 10" by 15" by 1" baking pan.  
Bake at 300 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring twice.
Remove from oven and place pan on a cooling rack.
Sprinkle dried fruit over and cool completely, stirring occasionally.
I keep my granola in the freezer.

Sounds good, md!  

I'm curious why you add the hot water to the oil and sweetener.

to give the grains a quick steaming, maybe?

I saw that in another recipe, so I tried it.

My hunter hubby loves a version of this so much he makes it himself! He uses quinoa flakes mixed with chopped compliant nuts, chopped dates & raisins, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, and cinnamon. Then he mixes agave with rice bran oil and tosses thorugh the whole mixture. He bakes it for only about 20 minutes on 160 deg C. When it has cooled, he then mixes in rice flakes (they are already very crisp, so baking them just turns them hard!) We keep it in the fridge.
