Quinoa-Pumpkin Seed Granola & Greek Yogurt


I mentioned my boys and I were headed up to grandma and grandpa's for the long weekend.  Well, we went and had tons of fun sledding, playing Pit, eating, and watching movies.  My sister came up too.  She always brings great new recipes to try.  This time, she found a recipe for Quinoa-Pumpkin Seed Granola in the January 2013 issue of Better Homes & Garden.  I would have never given this recipe a second look, but I'm sure glad she did!  It's amazing!  I was eating it by the handful as a snack, but my favorite way to eat it is on Greek yogurt with dried cherries.  My boys even ate this up.  You have to give it a try!  It's full of healthy ingredients, and so delicious!  It tends to look a bit like birdseed, but I promise the taste won't disappoint. 







I used Dannon Light & Fit Vanilla Greek Yogurt, and like I stated in the recipe, I didn't add my dried fruit into the granola, I sprinkled mine on top.  Also, if your local grocery store has bulk, go there for most of your granola ingredients (we did).  Bulk is the way to go when you don't need very much of each ingredient.    

Thanks, Melissa for the new satisfying, healthy snack!

    1. I don't see why you couldn't. Let me know if you try it, and how it turns out. I ate this for breakfast just this morning. I LOVE it every time I eat it. Thanks so much for stopping by! Come back soon!
