Found this recipe and thought it would be very BD friendly. Made it today and will definitely use it on tomorrow's oatmeal. I'm guessing at the number of servings and count.

  • 1 c. quinoa, white, organic
  • 1 c. oatmeal, cooked, organic
  • 1 c. almonds, organic, raw
  • 1 c. walnuts, raw, organic
  • 1 c. cranberries, dried, organic
  • 1 tbs. cinnamon, ground, organic
  • 1 tsp. sea salt, unrefined and pure
  • 1 1/2 c. maple syrup, pure, organic

  1. Begin buy cooking the quinoa. In a large sauce pan, bring 2C water and 1C quinoa to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer for ~15 minutes or until all of the water is absorbed. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the rest of the dry ingredients. Then toss in the cooled quinoa. (This is where you would want to add the brown sugar)
  3. Next, cover a large baking sheet with wax paper and evenly on spread mixture on mixture. Drizzle on agave nectar and toss.
  4. Bake at 325F for 40-50 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes or so. You know it is done with it starts to brown and hardens. *note: the thinner the layer of granola, the quicker it will toast!
