Maple Quinoa Cereal

Experimenting with making cereals that are nutritious and gluten free.....and YUMMY!

1 1/3 cups water
1 tsp vanilla
1 TB sugar(raw preferably)
3/4 cup quinoa

2 TB 100% maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt

Bring water, vanilla and sugar to a boil and dissolve sugar,

add quinoa, lower the heat and cover with a tight lid. Cook according to package instructions.

Mix remaining ingredients into cooked quinoa.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, spray lightly with cooking spray and press mixture to an even thickness. Score into small 'flakes' with a sharp knife.(spray the knife with cooking spray to prevent sticking)

Preheat oven to 375.
Bake 30 minutes, remove from oven and stir it around, breaking it into the scored flakes, return to the oven and bake 20-30 minutes more, flipping the flakes around as needed to ensure even baking.

Allow to cool(they will crisp more as they cool)

Pour some with some ice cold milk and enjoy!
