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

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sprouted quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  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?

Any ideas what to substitute for cocoanut oil for those allergic to cocoanut?

This looks very healthy and delicious! What are you serving it with in the picture above? Ice cream and raspberry sauce?

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.
