Ingredients:

– 1/4 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed well and pat dry with paper towel

– 1 1/2 cup rolled oats

– 1/4 cup ground flaxseed

– 1/4 cup pepitas (or other seeds, I did not use these)

– 1/4 cup chopped pecans

– 1/2 cup dried cranberries

– 1/4 cup real maple syrup (or I used honey!)

– 1/4 cup pumpkin puree

– 1 tsp oil (coconut or canola)

– 1 tsp pumpkin spice (or to taste!)

– 1/4 tsp cinnamon

– Pinch kosher salt

– 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

Preheat over to 325 degrees. Spread oats and quinoa out on a parchment lined baking pan. Toast in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove the oats from the oven, pour the toasted oats into a medium bowl and add the ground flaxseed, pepitas, pecans, and dried fruit. Reduce the oven to 300 degrees. In a second medium bowl, combine syrup (or honey), pumpkin puree, oil, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Pour over oats and stir together with a spatula. Spread back into a baking sheet and bake an additional 20 minutes, or until golden.

Enjoy.
