I’ve officially made it my mission to finish the foods in my pantry and fridge before I stock up on more things. I know I’m always going on about cleaning out my fridge but I think it’s because for the first time in my life I’m buying my groceries and no one else is helping me eat the things I buy so I feel like I’m constantly scarfing food down so nothing goes bad! I guess that’s not too bad of a situation to find myself in 🙂
But now I have even more of an incentive because in 2 weeks i will once again be moving! AHHHHH
Geez, I really can’t wait for the school year to start so I will finally have a permanent residency.
So anyhooo, how am I going about eating everything that I have?
Enter Quinoa Granola Cereal!
(inspired by the edible perspective’s Quinoa Granola)
1 cup quinoa
1 cup water
1/2 cup almond milk
1 T cinnamon
3 T flax seeds
2.5 T raw agave
1/2 cup almonds (chopped/slivered would be even better)
1/2 cup raisins
– preheat oven to 350. Bring water to a boil then add quinoa and lower to a simmer. After about half the water evaporates add the almond milk. After cooking add the rest of the ingredients and mix. Grease a baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes, stirring the granola about every 15 minutes.
*make sure you don’t over bake because the quinoa becomes pretty hard*
This granola creates a crunchy, lightly sweetened and nutty granola. The only thing it’s missing is that it doesn’t create clusters but it’s still delish! I ate mine with a little almond milk for breakfast
btw has anyone seen strange sex on TLC? I was recently flipping through the channels and stumbled on this on and let me tell you, strange is definitely an understatement.
If you’ve seen it, what do you think about it? Let’s just say I was laughing and amazed the entire time lol
