I love quinoa. It’s all about fiber and protein and darn it, it’s cute. It’s a regular on my dinner table, and sometimes my breakfast table too, but I’ve rarely thought of good ways to incorporate it into snacks – so I hunted up a handful of awesome quinoa snack recipes that look absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to try them all!
Quinoa flour, corn flour, sunflower and sesame seeds, herbs and seasonings…imagine all that flavor, texture and crunch! These are the first crackers in a long time that strike me as well worth eating, and they look so hearty and gorgeous. If you haven’t made quinoa flour before, don’t worry, it’s super easy. Homemade Adventure has a great post showing how it’s done.
I really love the tasty simplicity of these bars! Bananas, quinoa and oats, almonds, cinnamon and nutmeg and a dash of maple syrup – that’s a basic ingredient list I can work with all day, and so healthy! If you want to get extra deluxe, dip them in some coconut butter or melted chocolate.
Zucchini chips baked to golden perfection in a crunchy coating of quinoa and other good stuff, and then dipped in a healthy, creamy Sriracha sauce – clear my schedule! I love zucchini, and I can’t wait to try that yummy quinoa coating on my beloved mushrooms, too.
This is such a gorgeous pic – wow do I wish I could grab one of those clusters! – and it sounds like one of those recipes I’ll be making at my own risk, because I’m very likely to have it all eaten in a couple hours. I love how pretty the quinoa makes the granola, in addition to being its healthy quinoa self.
When I saw this recipe, I almost shouted CHIVDA! out loud. Chivda is an Indian snack, slightly sweet, very spicy, totally messy to eat and all-around awesome. When I lived in Phoenix and Seattle I could get it in Asian and Indian markets, and it was one of my favorite treats. I’m pretty sure there was no quinoa in the chivda I was buying, though. I am so making this!!
