I haven't been a fan of quinoa, until I tried it out as a replacement for oats in granola. This works for me!
How to make it:
- 4 cups quinoa flakes
- 1/2 cup walnuts (or sliced almonds or pecans)
- 1/4 cup rice bran (or oat bran)
- 1/4 cup ground chia seed (or almond meal)
- 1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds, without the shell (or unsalted sunflower seeds)
- 3 Tablespoons flaxseed
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger (or nutmeg or allspice)
- 1/2 cup agave (or honey or maple syrup)
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil (or canola oil or coconut oil)
- 1/3 cup dried cherries (or raisins)
- 1/3 cup goji berries (or cranberries)
- about 1/4 cup crystallized ginger, optional
- In a large bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients.
- Drizzle with agave and olive oil;
- toss to coat.
- Spread in a 15 inch by 10 inch by 1 inch baking pan coated with cooking spray.
- Bake at 300 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring twice.
