Quinoa crunch



I’ve been on a bit of a quinoa crunch kick, if you can’t tell. The quinoa cookies were so good, I did a bit of investigating to see what else I could find.

This one is from Jillian Michael’s Master Your Metabolism Cookbook, and it’s like making a crumble for a tasty morning yogurt parfait.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 cup quinoa
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fresh berries
  • 1/2 teaspoon of honey

1. Rinse the quinoa in cold water. Add to a bowl and mix with flaxseed, honey and olive oil.

2. Lay on a pan and spead out.

3. Cook for 15 mins in preheated, 375 degree oven until lightly browned.

4. Use 2 tables spoon of quinoa with yogurt and top with berries. Drizzle with honey.
