One of the main struggles I've had lately is being at a complete and utter culinary loss. I have had little inspiration to create for because the only ingredients I can find are very expensive. Lady night I befriended a young person on tumblr who has an oat allergy and was desperately seeking recipes. Being allergic to Oats myself, I began discussing my grain replacements with them. I owe this recipe to my new tumblr friend, you inspired me to keep trying, so thank you.
Gluten-Free, oat-free, nut - free, wheat-free, corn - free Vanilla Maple Granola:
1 cup freshly cooked quinoa
1/2 cup ground flax meal
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup maple syrup (I use maple agave)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup dried berries or nuts (optional, I used blueberries)
Mix all ingredients completely,
spread mixture out in a thin layer on dehydrator sheet. Dehydrate until crispy.
This granola is great for a snack or cereal
