"Quick and easy. Sprinkle a few tablespoons of this nutty-tasting granola on yogurt. Quinoa is high in protein." — CRAZY4SUSHI

pure maple syrup
This recipe wasn't designed for the omega3's that ground flax offers. It is more for fiber and to add a nutty flavor to the granola. However, if you chew the flax seed, you are grinding them, breaking them down and getting the benefits they offer.
Very poor recipe. Flax seed must be ground in order to benefit from the nutrients. Quinoa is a wonderful grain but not like this.
Has the consistancy of something like bird food, but has a good flavor. I added more cinnamon and some dried apples as well.
Thanks for a healthy topping to plain yogurt!
Me and my kids love this!!
I like this because there are no oats which I react to. It is very granular though. I did change it a lot. I used mostly puffed quinoa but the rest was red quinoa, liquid honey rather than maple syrup, organic coconut oil to have a softer taste & I used sesame seeds in place of flax seeds for calcium and because that is what I had on hand. DD1 (years old and I liked it sprinkled over yogurt & bananas with extra liquid honey drizzled on top.
Tasty, but not much too it.
I used this as cereal and loved it. I substituded the flax seed with walnuts and added a ripe peach. It's filling and very crunchy wich is a win win for me.
