1 1/2 cups quinoa flakes
1/4 cup egg whites
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup to 1/3 cup honey (or maple syrup/agave/rice syrup)
Optional: spices/nuts/seeds/dried fruit*
Preheat oven to 355°F. Pour quinoa flakes into a medium mixing bowl. Combine egg whites, salt, vanilla and honey in a small bowl and pour into the quinoa flakes. Mix until all of the quinoa flakes are covered and then pour onto a lined baking sheet. Spread out the granola mix slightly, making sure to leave clumps for clusters later on. Bake for 15 minutes until the granola is golden, before turning the heat down to 230°F until the granola dries out and crisps up. Once the granola is crisp and crunchy, leave the granola to cool completely before pouring into an airtight container.
*Spices can be added into the wet mixture before cooking If using dried fruit, add this after the granola is cooked. Nuts and seeds can be added before or after, depending on how crunchy you like them.
