Quinoa Almond Brittle


  • 1/2 cup uncooked white quinoa
  • 3/4 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoon black chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the quinoa, almonds, oats, coconut sugar, chia seeds, coconut sugar, and sea salt and stir to combine.
  • Add the melted coconut oil, vanilla extract, and pure maple syrup. Stir until fully mixed.
  • Spread the mixture into an even layer on the parchment paper and bake for 12-15 minutes, watching carefully to avoid burning. The brittle is ready when the color is evenly golden brown and the edges begin to darken, get bubbly, and spread farther out.
  • Let cool completely before breaking into bite-size pieces with your hands.
