Author Notes: Quinoa is baked with maple syrup, coconut oil and cinnamon for a slightly sweet, crunchy, healthy snack. Krissy @Make It Naked

Serves 4

  • 1/2 cup sprouted quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix all ingredients until quinoa is coated and wet.
  3. Spread into a thin layer on baking sheet and bake for 14-20 minutes or until quinoa starts to brown. The longer you bake, the crunchier it'll be.
  4. Remove and let cool. Break into pieces. Top yogurt or add milk for a gluten-free cereal.

How is "sprouted" quinoa different than what I buy to cook? And do I cook the quinoa or use it as it comes in the package?

It should be 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. I'm unsure why it's not showing the measurement as it's selected on the recipe entry page.
