INGREDIENTS:

½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
½ cup good-quality Maple Syrup

Quinoa Granola - A Home is Made - Snack RecipeINSTRUCTIONS:

– Preheat oven to 400°F
– Whisk together maple syrup and extra virgin olive oil in a large bowl
– Add quinoa flakes and stir to combine thoroughly
– Lay parchment paper on a large baking sheet and make sure you have an inch of the parchment paper coming up the sides of the baking sheet as well
– Spread the quinoa mixer onto the baking sheet evenly
– Sprinkle your pinch of salt over mixer before adding to oven
– Let cook making sure to stir every 5 minutes so not to burn the edges
– Cook until golden brown in colour
– It says to cook up to 25 minutes but it only takes 18 minutes for me so make sure to keep a close eye on this
– Let the quinoa mixer sit to cool completely
– Add quinoa mixer to the rest of your roughly chopped ingredients (I like to keep my cuts a little larger)
– Store in a glass jar for up to 2 weeks
