Snack Time: Quinoa Cruch Parfait

We’re crazy for quinoa in this house. We also love a good yogurt parfait. So when we found this awesome Quinoa Crunch Recipe [1] we were ready to give it a go! The result was a crunch-tastic snack that I will be having for breakfast, lunch and dinner… and everything in between.

It’s starts with dry quinoa. You can use red or white.  Then you add a little canola oil and agave.

Then you spread it out on a Silpat (or just a non-stick cookie sheet) and bake it until it’s crunchy. It’s perfectly sweet and adds just the right amount of texture to a bowl of fruit and yogurt. Now for the recipe…
