Sorry guys it has been a while since my last recipe update!!
Life has been crazy busy, and with the lead up to Christmas life was chaotic with catch ups and food, food and more FOOD!
Here is my latest creation – and my GAWD it is way better than I expected it to be!! So I’m sure you will love it.
It’s an apple and almond, cinnamon quinoa slice! Wacko! But superb in flavour! If you’ve never made this and you like xmas fruit mince pies or custard or even raw gingerbread – you will DEFF LOVE this as much as we do.
It’s weird, but totally works!!
1 1/2 cups uncooked quinoa
2 apples peeled and diced
1/2 cup sultanas
1/2 cup chopped raw almonds
1 1/4 cup milk (lactose free, soy, almond, oat milks are all fine also)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 cup maple syrup
Mix your quinoa with the spices, spread in an oven proof dish (that has been greased with butter)
Sprinkle the sultanas and apple on top of the quinoa evenly. in a bowl – mix the eggs, milk and maple syrup together well and poor over the quinoa. Top with the chopped almonds and place in the oven for 1hr 20mins or less depending on heat of your oven (until it’s not watery any more and almost solid – but still moist) on 170 degree heat.
Serves great cold or hot and can be eaten as a ️breakfast, dessert or snack!
Dress it up or down, topped with fresh fruit and yoghurt or even served with custard. I had a cold slice on its own for breakfast and it was super filling and so tasty! Goodluck guys
