Maple Pecan Quinoa
Delicious Maple Pecan Quinoa with coconut and raisins.
- 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 or more to taste
- 20 g raisins ~2 tbsp
- 5 g 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
In a small pot, combine quinoa, water and 1/4 tsp salt.
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.
At this point, keep the heat on and stir in your additional dash of salt, coconut oil, sweetener, vanilla & cinnamon to taste.
Then add in your pecans, coconut and raisins. Stir and spoon into a serving bowl.
Enjoy hot with a drizzle of syrup (I like to keep the syrup beside me and add a little at a time as I eat, stirring to combine it.)
