This homemade maple quinoa granola recipe is loaded with cinnamon, warm vanilla, pumpkin seeds, chia and crunchy pecans and is naturally sweetened with maple syrup and blackstrap molasses. This addicting and delicious blend of oats and quinoa make a perfect Autumn harvest cereal that’s gluten free and vegan!
This is the first recipe I’ve created (for my blog) since we moved to Atlanta! Yay for finally utilizing my new kitchen which is actually not so new. I’m pretty sure Tony Soprano has the same kitchen as I do. But it cooks food so that’s all I care about for now because I have so many delicious recipes planned this month. My big recipe test this week: S’mores Pumpkin Cupcakes with Toasted Meringue Frosting–sounds so good and I’m hoping I pull it off so I can finally utilize my kitchen torch/cigar lighter.
Maple Quinoa Granola–a perfect gluten-free granola to top a bowl of Greek yogurt, or enjoy as a bowl of cereal to top with your favorite Fall fruit. Now if you say, “Ciarra, blueberries are not a Fall fruit.”
I will tell you that, “They are amazing and you can find them year round which makes them perfect for an Autumn Harvest bowl.” 😛
