Dessert for dinner anyone? You can eat this Maple Pecan Quinoa any time of the day! It's super filling, buttery and delicious…

I could eat this Maple Pecan Quinoa again and again! It's a great meal if you are heading out and won't be eating again for a while because it's loaded with fibre and protein.

It's everything we love in a dessert..sweet, creamy, warm…all packed into a perfect serving of what some may call “super food”.

Tools I used to Create Maple Pecan Quinoa

    • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!

Maple Pecan Quinoa

Serves 1-2

Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup dry quinoa, 57g
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, 7g
  • dash of salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp Truvia Sweetener, or more to taste
  • 20g raisins, ~2 tbsp
  • 5g unsweetened desiccated coconut, ~1 tbsp
  • 1 ounce chopped pecans, 1-2 tbsp chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp sugar-free maple syrup, I recommend ChocZero Sugar Free Maple Syrup

Directions:

  1. In a small pot, combine quinoa, water and 1/4 tsp salt.
  2. Cover and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to low and simmer for 15 minutes or until quinoa absorbs all water and is fluffy.
  3. At this point, keep the heat on and stir in your additional dash of salt, coconut oil, sweetener, vanilla & cinnamon to taste.
  4. Then add in your pecans, coconut and raisins. Stir and spoon into a serving bowl.

Enjoy your Maple Pecan Quinoa!
