Food Porn of The Week: Coconut Quinoa Granola

Ahh, where do I begin with this delightful concoction? I've been wanting to make homemade granola for a while now as I've never attempted it before. When I saw a recipe for coconut quinoa granola I was sold. I've made quinoa a few times before and it never really did anything for me. With this recipe you don't even need to cook the quinoa before hand. I didn't follow the original recipe exactly. I worked with what I had at home and the end result was a delicious combination of flavors and textures that were perfect served on top of nonfat Greek yogurt. I have been having that everyday for breakfast for the past week and have yet to get tired of it. Click here for the original recipe and see my variations below:

2 cups whole rolled oats (couldn't find buckwheat), 2 T ground flax seeds (didn't have chia seeds), 1/4 cup raw cashews (instead of walnuts), no raisins, 1/2 cup raw agave nectar (instead of maple syrup)
