Crispy Quinoa Granola - Low FODMAP, gluten free, dairy free, veganThe past couple of days in Indy have been sunny, not too humid and WONDERFUL! I am so thankful that my time off before I begin my internship is like this because that means I am spending TONS of time walking the dogs, playing with them in the backyard and just being outside 🙂 I love it.

When it’s raining, it’s really hard for me to spend time outside.  I’ve tried bundling in rain gear and trudging through, but even the DOGS act like they don’t want to be outside.  So, instead of being outside I create recipes…and this Crispy Quinoa Granola is the fruit of a day of rainy recipe testing.

It’s also really simple to make, which I love because that means I can make it on days even when it’s not rainy and I have a little less time than I do now 😉

Comments

  1. What a great alternative to traditional granola, especially if you’re a quinoa fan – which I am!

  2. This looks so crumbly and delicious! It looks like it could also make a really great crust for a cheesecake 😛

  3. LOVE how low sugar this granola is! It’d be delicious with some thick Icelandic-style yogurt 😉

  4. So jealous you’re getting to spend so much time outside! Enjoy it to the max! Glad you are enjoying your time off.
