Crunchy Grain Free Granola

Serves 8
by Tenina Holder

That's right, quinoa is not a grain, rather it is a seed. A protein packed little seed at that. And given that I am not big on breakfast, and that it sounds way too healthy for the start to my day...I loved it! And it was totally gone within the day it was made. Of course it is easy to double up, triple up on this recipe, so go for it. You may be glad you did.

You can of course add as many dried fruits and nuts as you need to bulk it up. Or even add grains! What am I saying??? Whatever takes your dietary fancy...this can fit the bill.
