Home made Maple Quinoa Cereal

This cereal contains twice the amount of protein of regular cereal grains, far less carbohydrates, more healthy fats, fiber, iron, phosphorus, AND.. Because the carbs contained in quinoa are slow-releasing, it will have you feeling full for hours and hours after your breakfast!  Quinoa is considered a complete protein, just like any other good source of protein; such as eggs, meat, and dairy, which makes it a perfect protein-source for vegetarians/vegans too :)

Homemade Maple Quinoa Cereal

  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
    • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    • In a bowl mix all ingredients together
    • Pour onto a sheet of parchment paper lining a baking pan
    • Flatten smooth with a spoon until quinoa mixture is a thin sheet (~1/2 inch thick)
    • Bake for 40-50 minutes, checking halfway and flipping in order to bake evenly on both sides
    • Remove from oven when cereal is slightly golden brown. Allow to cool.
    • Enjoy it as a cereal or even as a healthy cracker!
