Quinoa and Flax Greek Yogurt Topping

I was reading the May Women's Health magazine with Jillian Michaels and she gave a recipe for this quinoa flax topping to use on Greek Yogurt. It looks super easy so I tried it and it turned out great. I added a little more flax because I have tons and it still turned out great. Can't wait to use it on top of my greek yogurt tomorrow.I am going to try it next time with oats, almonds, and whatever else I have laying around to make it into a granola for a quick snack.

1 c uncooked quinoa (put in a bowl first and rinse/drain very well)
1/2 whole flaxseed
1 tbsp honey
1 tbsp olive oil

  • Preheat oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix together all the ingredients above.
  • Spread mixture onto  the parchment paper.
  • Bake for 10 mins or until golden brown.
  • Let cool completely and crumble onto Greek Yogurt.

  1. I made a batch of this last night and I think I might be obsessed!! I made a parfait with it for breakfast this morning by adding Greek yogurt, strawberries and blueberries. It was super yummy and kept me feeling full for hours!!!
