I had such high hopes for this, but alas it really didn't work for us. I tried adding raisins, sunflower seeds, and a healthy amount of cinnamon, but there was just something "off". I am giving three stars for the concept, though--what a great and creative way to eat quinoa! I will try it again some day and see what I can do to make it more our style. Thanks for the idea! Made for PAC Spring 2011.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a large bowl mix quinoa and boiling water.
  2. Add remaining ingredients.
  3. Spread mixture evenly on a large cookie sheet.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees stirring every 10 minutes for about 30 minutess or until slightly brown and crunchy. It's important the it is not still moist or it will not keep well.
  5. When the granola is properly cooked you can store it at room temperature in a covered container just as long as you would regular cereal.
  6. You can double or triple this recipe if you have a lot of mouths in your house. Just remember you'll have to bake it in several batches then because the layer you spread out should be fairly thin to bake through.
  7. Also if you are interested in making a "raw" version of this you can dehydrate it instead of baking it until the desired crispiness is achieved.
