Crunchy Maple Quinoa Cereal Recipe

So as I mentioned, I tossed and turned all night with the empty bed and creepy noises.

However, I did have good dreams…dreams of homemade cereal, that is. It dawned on me that I have never made my own homemade cereal before, so off I was to the kitchen to do some testing!


  • 1 1/2 cups cooked quinoa
  • 1 T chia seeds
  • 2 T pure maple syrup
  • 1/2-3/4 t cinnamon
  • 1 t vanilla
  • pinch or two sea salt


In a small bowl mix everything together. Pour onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Break up into chunks with a spoon and flatten with a hand as if you were making flatbread. Cook for 30-50 minutes at 325F, being sure to check half way through and adjust cooking time if necessary. Flip cereal around with a spatula for more even cooking. Cereal should be slightly golden brown when finished. Remove from oven and cool. Enjoy in a bowl with your favourite milk + toppings over top!

This cereal is amazing!!! High in protein and fibre too (approx 12 grams protein and 8 grams fibre for the entire recipe- without the chia seeds).

Slightly sweet, very crunchy, and it stays crunchy even when in milk.

The best part about the recipe is that you can tailor the baking time to suit your needs- soft or crunchy. Personally, I love my cereal crunchy!
