*Ancient Harvest Traditional Whole Grain Quinoa, 1 serving =.25 cup dry, 1 cup cooked according to pkg. This will make about 4 cups. Then chill & fluff.
Coconut Oil, 2 tsp
Raisins, .5 cup (not packed) You can substitute other dried fruit of your choice like dried cranberries
Apples, fresh, 1 cup, quartered or chopped
Pecans, .5 cup, chopped You can use walnuts or almonds if you like
Cinnamon, ground, 1 tsp or to taste
**Truvia (Zero Cal Stevia) 1 packet, 1 serving or any 0 calorie sweetener you like
If you make this it will be a lot unless several people are eating it right away. Left overs can be eaten cold & I think are just as good. Sometime I add a little fruit juice (cranberry is good) and stir to fluff it up when it is cold.
Stir in sweetener and serve.
Serving Size: This makes 4 hearty servings. I often get 6 servings of about a cup each so that is how I figured it.
Number of Servings: 6
