Jillian Michael's Quinoa Crunch Yogurt Topping (135 cals per 2 Tbsp)

Introduction

Taken directly from Women's Health, May 2010 issue, page 44. This recipe comes straight from Jillian's MASTER YOUR METABOLISM COOKBOOK. The only thing I added was 1 Tbsp of cinnamon because I LOVE that flavour!

Jillian suggests a 2 Tbsp serving atop 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt with berries and finished with a honey drizzle.

  • Fanfrickintastic. This is one of my new favorite breakfasts. The only thing I changed is adding a dash of pumpkin pie spice on top (next time I'll probably add it in the quinoa crunch before I bake it). The cinnamony flavor really makes it pop! - 5/16/11

  • This is sooo incredibly yummy! The quinoa burned when I followed the baking instructions, so I lowered the heat to 350 degrees and baked only 18 minutes. - 6/12/10

  • I have this one too, it is yummy and very crunchy. However, I found it only made 6 servings when I made it. So that upped the calories a bit. I will try the cinnamon next time! - 6/2/10
