Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1 Cup Uncooked Quinoa
    2 Cups Carrot Juice, apple/pear juice, soaked date liquid or water
    1 Tablespoon Flax Seeds, Ground
    1 Tablespoon Chia Seeds
    1 Tablespoon Olive Oil, coconut oil or melted butter
    3 – 4 Tablespoons honey or maple syrup
    1 1/4 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
    1/2 Teaspoon Ground Ginger
    1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    Pinch Ground Nutmeg
    Pinch Salt

Directions

Begin by cooking your quinoa in the carrot juice. Simply bring the carrot juice to a boil in a small pot, and add in the dry quinoa. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and let cook gently for 15 – 20 minutes, until the liquid has all been absorbed. Serve hot or you can bake it according to the recipe below:


Let cool completely before proceeding. You can speed this up by transferring the cooked quinoa to a large bowl and stirring it around a bit, to let it air-dry more quickly.

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees, and lightly grease a baking sheet with sides.

In a medium bowl, mix the cooled quinoa in with all of the remaining ingredients. Spread the mixture out on your prepared sheet, in as thin and even a layer as you can manage. This will help the cereal bake up nice and crispy, so take your time smoothing it out with either a spatula or lightly moistened hands.

Bake for 45 – 60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes or so, until lightly browned and seemingly dry. It may still have a little bit of “bounce” to it, but don’t worry; it will continue to crisp up as it cools.
