I once made a chocolate quinoa granola, which I was happy with. For this reason I wanted to share this recipe with you guys. I found the recipe here, but I changed it a bit. The taste was very good but the texture was too hard, because of the quinoa. Well, next time I would add more oats instead of quinoa or simply use popped quinoa. I also used mixed quinoa what I think looks great visually.
Chocolate Quinoa Granola
2 1/4 cups rolled oats
1 3/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/3 cup canola oil
1 rounded teaspoon salt
1 bar dark chocolate ( 72%, 100 gr.)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, quinoa, almonds, , cocoa powder, brown sugar, honey, canola oil, and salt. Stir until completely combined and all pieces are coated with the honey and oil.
Spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes, or until completely toasted and golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Add the chopped chocolate and stir to distribute.
Serve room temperature with milk or yogurt, or as a snack. Store in an air-tight container.
