- 4 cups cooked quinoa
- 1/2 cup millet
- 1/2 cup chopped almonds
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat an oven to 325 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the quinoa, millet, almonds, pumpkin seeds, spices, and salt until well combined.
In another bowl, stir together the sugar, pumpkin, applesauce, maple syrup, and vanilla extract until well combined.
Add the pumpkin mixture to the quinoa and stir together until everything is well mixed and coated.
Spread into a thin layer on the baking sheets. Cook for 20 minutes and then stir. Cook for an additional 20 minutes and stir again. Check the crispiness at this point and continue cooking for 10 minutes increments until it is crispy and golden brown. Mine took about 60 minutes total, although the original recipe calls for 40 minutes. Take out and let cool. It will continue to crisp up while cooling.
