Granola Recipe

Here’s a recipe I want to hang on to. I’d have to put it in and see how many calories/protein it is, but it sounds delicious right now!

1.5 cups quinoa flakes

1/2 cup slivered almonds

1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 tbsp butter

1/3 cup honey

Vanilla protein powder – as much as I could stir in and still have a syrupy consistency (I’d need to experiment to find the best amount)  I’d use vanilla since it’s a more neutral flavor, but chocolate could also rock.

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Dried fruit, to taste

 

ETA: Without the protein powder, it’s ~150 calories for 1/4 cup and 4 grams of protein. Adding 3 scoops of powder (which may not dissolve) adds 3g of protein/serving and 20 calories.
