Homemade Crunchy Maple Quinoa Cereal.

We love our favorite granola, but even the yummiest stuff needs a break. OhSheGlows has some gooood stuff, and this granola is one of them. I add some mixed nuts to roast with it because it's just gooood. I'll eat it like popcorn too.

1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
1 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/2-3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
pinch or two sea salt
1 1/2 cups favorite nuts, chopped (i like almonds, pecans and walnuts)

In a small bowl mix everything together. Pour onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Break up into chunks with a spoon and flatten with a hand as if you were making flatbread. Cook for 30-50 minutes at 325*F, being sure to check half way through and adjust cooking time if necessary. Flip cereal around with a spatula for more even cooking. Cereal should be slightly golden brown when finished. Remove from oven and cool.

Enjoy in a bowl with your favorite milk and toppings over top! Peaches please.
