Quinoa is incredibly nutritious, high in fibre and a great source of protein to kick start your day. I love to use flakes as an alternative to oats, as they are gluten free. You can use any of your favourite nuts and seeds utilising the quantities mentioned below. Top with some berries or bananas and serve with almond or coconut milk.
YOU WILL NEED:
2 cups organic quinoa flakes
1/2 cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1/3 cup organic virgin coconut oil
1/3 cup almonds (raw)
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/3 cup cashews (raw)
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup walnuts (raw)
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup organic maple syrup
1 tsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 300F/150C. Line a large flat baking tray with baking paper.
In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients.
Spread out evenly on a tray and bake for 30 mins.
Check your granola regularly to ensure the outside edges are not browning. Stir granola for more even baking.
Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks, but I seriously think this will be all consumed before then!!
